    AMHERST, N.Y. (AP) -- Sonny Troutman had 21 points and seven assists and Ohio held off a late Buffalo surge to win 92-90 Wednesday.

    Leon Williams and Jeff Halbert scored 17 points apiece, Terren Harbut had 14 and Jeremy Fears added 10 as the Bobcats (11-7, 6-4 Mid-American Conference) had five players in double figures for the fifth time this season.

    Following a 10-0 Ohio run that made the score 82-71 with 5:19 left, Buffalo (13-6, 6-5) chipped away at the lead. Calvin Cage hit a 3-pointer with five seconds remaining to make it 92-90.

    After Harbut missed two free throws, Turner Battle got the rebound for the Bulls and started dribbling down the court. Battle got as far as the free-throw line but was unable to get a shot off before the buzzer.

    Battle scored 23 of his 29 points in the second half. Jason Bird had 15 points and Daniel Gilbert added 12 as Buffalo had its three-game winning streak snapped.

    The score was tied at 41 at the break, with the two teams shooting an identical 53 percent from the field, 50 percent from beyond the arc and 67 percent from the free-throw line.
