TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) Buffalo is still in a bit of a 3-point shooting funk - except for Nick Perkins, who lifted the Bulls to an impressive victory in a Mid-American Conference showdown with Toledo.

Perkins matched his career high with 26 points - hitting four 3-pointers in the second half - to help No. 25 Buffalo beat Toledo 88-82 on Friday night. The Bulls went 0 for 9 from beyond the arc in the first half and finished 7 for 21, but the 6-foot-8 Perkins looked confident from long distance, even though he's not the most prolific perimeter shooter.

"It was good to see some 3s fall," Perkins said.
