Senior forward Onye Davis led the Bison with his second double-double, scoring 22 points and pulling down 10 boards. He also had three assists over 37 minutes of play.
Lance Gonzalez had 16 points, with Chi Ming Pun adding 12 and Johnny Jackson 11. Freshman Dan Fava had a career-high 9 points and 10 rebounds.
