Bulls top Toledo, advance to NCAA Tournament

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — For the third time in four years, the UB Men’s basketball team is heading to the NCAA Tournament.

Wes Clark and Nick Perkins hit some big shots in the final minutes to hold off Toledo in the MAC Championship, 76-66.



Clark, who combined for just 14 points in the Bulls’ quarterfinal and semifinal wins, erupted for 26 points and was honored as the MVP.


Fresh off back-to-back 20 point efforts, Jeremy Harris had a hot hand early in the contest, and ultimately finished with 10.

The trip to the Big Dance is the exclamation point on the season for UB. They set a program record with 26 wins which included 15 in conference play.


The Bulls will learn where they will play on Selection Sunday.
