AMHERST, N.Y. (AP) CJ Massinburg had 13 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists, and No. 17 Buffalo used a big second-half run to beat Division II Le Moyne 89-55 on Wednesday night.

Dontay Caruthers scored 20 points and reserve Nick Perkins had 18, helping Buffalo (8-0) continue its best start since the 1930-31 season. Jeremy Harris finished with 16 points.

Massinburg went 6 for 10 from the field while becoming the second player in program history to record a triple-double.

Zay Jennings scored 16 points for Le Moyne.

The game was tied at 37 at halftime, but Buffalo grabbed control with a 23-0 run that lasted more than eight minutes in the second half.

BIG PICTURE

Le Moyne: This game counted as an exhibition for the Dolphins, who are 5-3 in Division II contests after losing an exhibition at Syracuse to open the season. LeMoyne has defeated three Division I teams over the past eight seasons, including Siena last season.

Buffalo: Ranked in the AP Top 25 for the first time in program history, the Bulls improved to 15-0 against lower-level opponents since moving up to Division I for the 1992-93 season. Buffalo will face tougher tests later this month with games at Syracuse and Marquette.

UP NEXT

Le Moyne hosts New Haven on Saturday.

Buffalo will make the 90-minute trip to St. Bonaventure on Saturday to face the only team that beat the Bulls on their home floor last season.
