Buffalo never trailed in the second half, but had a tough time holding off the Huskies. The Bulls had a 52-41 lead with 4:27 left in the game when Nuiriankh made two free throws.

Northern Illinois cut the deficit to three points, 57-54, with 22 seconds left on Aksel Bolin's layup. But the Huskies (5-17, 3-7) were held scoreless the rest of the way, as Nuiriankh made two more free throws to give Buffalo enough cushion for the victory.

Abdel Nader was the only Northern Illinois player to score in double figures with 13 points. The Huskies have lost two straight.
