    AMHERST, N.Y. (AP) -- Roderick Middleton had 19 points and Calvin Cage added 16 to lift Buffalo to a 62-53 win over Rutgers Saturday night.

    Buffalo (8-1), which received a vote in the AP Top 25 this week for the first time in school history, is off to its best start since beginning the 1962-63 season 9-1.

    Parnell Smith chipped in 10 points for the Bulls, who have won 23 of their last 25 games at home.

    Down by one point at halftime, the Scarlet Knights (6-2) opened the second half with a 10-2 run that was capped by Quincy Douby's 3-pointer, making the score 36-29. Douby led Rutgers with 24 points and Marquis Webb had 15.

    The Bulls erased the deficit with a 12-2 run that made it 41-38 with 9:53 to go.

    Cage hit a 3-pointer to put the Bulls up by 10 with just over three minutes left and iced the game with another 3 with 45 seconds remaining.
