BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Justin Moss had career-highs of 25 points and 13 rebounds and Buffalo had two steals in the last 30 seconds to hold off South Dakota State 69-67 on Friday night in the season opener for both teams.
After Jarryn Skeete's layup with 41 seconds left put the Bulls up 67-66, the Jackrabbits had turnovers on their next two possessions. However, Shannon Evans was only able to make 2 of 4 free throws, giving South Dakota State a final chance.
Deondre Parks was fouled with 3 seconds left. He made the first free throw and intentionally missed the second but the Jackrabbits could not come up with the ball.
Evans added 17 points for the Bulls.
