The Bulls (8-4) led almost the entire game, falling behind only once -- 17-16 on Drew Ferry's 3-pointer with 10:25 to play in the first half. The Big Red (3-10) forced three ties thereafter but never regained the advantage. Mulkey's jumper with 10:27 left gave Buffalo the lead for good at 48-46.
Poor shooting hampered the Big Red. They attempted 19 more shots than Buffalo (66-47), but made three fewer shots (25-22). They tried to stay close with an advantage in 3-pointers, with Ferry and Wroblewski each making four.
The Bulls, however, compensated by going inside the 3-point arc, making 19 of 25 (76 percent).
