Cierra Dillard led the Bulls in scoring with 26 points while Autum Jones and Summer Hemphill each added 13 points. Eastern Michigan is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 4-11 ATS in their last 15 Thursday games while the under is 15-5-1 in their last 21 conference matchups. But Clark answered with a jumper in the lane, then a pair of free throws for a 67-63 edge. "He texted me this morning 'I'm not ending my career like this'".

And while the Bulls were looking for their third NCAA Tournament trip in four years, the Rockets were looking for their first since 1980.

The two teams met only once this season, the league opener at Buffalo won by the Bulls, 104-94.

The win could have been costly for Toledo as Tre'Shaun Fletcher, the MAC's player of the year, limped off the floor favoring his left leg. Fletcher finished with 16 points and nine rebounds.

Fletcher did not play in the title game after suffering a sprained knee in the MAC quarterfinals against Miami. Later in the second half two consecutive three-pointers by Eastern Michigan's Elijah Minnie and Kevin McAdoo opened a 54-49 lead with 7:14 left in regulation.

Toledo stayed with Buffalo early, but late in the first half Buffalo's defense really kicked in.

"We know how to play the game", said Buffalo guard Jeremy Harris.

Kathy Griffin Announces New US Tour, Set to Start in 'Trump's Backyard'
With its release in May of 2017 came a swift backlash from all angles, including the Trump family and the White House. Unable to tour in the United States, Griffin went overseas, performing in 23 cities in 15 countries, she said.

Clark was named the tournament's most valuable player after finishing 10 of 15 from the field with five rebounds, four steals and three steals.

"I have to thank my teammates and my coaches helping me get that award", Frost said.

The real challenge for Buffalo, particularly Perkins, was finding quality shots. The Bulls were 20 of 26 from the line to 24 of 32 for CMU.

The Bulls also dug in on the defensive end, holding the Golden Flashes under 35 percent shooting and allowing their fewest points against a Division I opponent this season, corresponding with another one of the Oats' family signs displaying, "BULLS DOMINATE WITH BLUE COLLAR MENTALITY".

"Perkins lost his mind, so obviously you get nervous, " Oats said.

Having won their first MAC regular season championship, the UB men will host an NIT game next week if they don't make it in to the big bracket.
