AMHERST, N.Y. — Jeenathan Williams Jr. scored a career-high 26 points and Buffalo beat Ohio 76-73. 

Williams scored the go-ahead basket on a layup with 15 seconds to go. On Ohio's following possession, Josh Mballa blocked Jason Preston's layup attempt. The Bobcats gathered the deflection, but a pass attempt to Sylvester Ogbonda was tipped by a Buffalo defender, ricocheted off Ogbonda's fingertips and went out of bounds.

 Jayvon Graves made a pair of foul shots with 0.3 seconds to seal the win. Ben Vander Plas scored a career-high 28 points and Jason Preston tied a career-high 27 points for Ohio.
