    AMHERST, N.Y. (AP) -- Mario Jordan had 14 points and Turner Battle added 11 more to help lift Buffalo to a come-from-behind 56-54 win over Toledo Sunday.

    The Bulls (9-3, 2-2 Mid-American Conference) defeated the Rockets for the first time in nine tries, and have won six of their last seven games overall.

    Down by 15 with under 12 minutes remaining, Buffalo went on a 22-2 run to take a 53-48 lead with 3:56 to go. Battle and Jordan combined for 13 points during the game-turning span. The Rockets were held pointless for 7:41 during the stretch until Keith Triplett made a pair of free throws with 3 1/2 minutes left.

    Toledo (5-7, 1-2) had a chance to tie, but missed on four opportunities from the field over the final 14 seconds, including Allen Pinson's five-footer with three seconds to go.

    Battle also added seven assists and Mark Bortz had 10 rebounds as Buffalo improved to 5-1 at home this season.

    Triplett led the Rockets with 24 points, and Anton Currie added 11.
