    BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Javon McCrae scored 17 points and Zach Filzen added 16 as Buffalo used a second-half surge to defeat Eastern Michigan 65-47 on Tuesday night for the Bulls' third straight win.

    Mitchell Watt added 14 points and Jarod Oldham had 10 assists for Buffalo (11-6, 4-2 Mid-American Conference), which snapped the Eagles' three-game winning streak.

    Eastern Michigan scored nine of the last 11 points of the first half to trail 24-23.

    After Darrell Lampley's layup gave the Eagles a 25-24 lead, Buffalo answered with a 14-4 run to pull away.

    The Bulls shot 45.8 percent (22 of 48) and made 9 of 21 3-pointers (42.9 percent) while Eastern Michigan shot 34 percent (16 of 47) and hit only 2 of 14 from long range.

    Lampley's 14 points led the Eagles, who came in with the worst scoring offense in MAC contests (51 points) and the best scoring defense (49 points).
