Shareese Hamer (Erie, PA/Strong Vincent) led Buffalo Sate with 11 points and nine rebounds. Toya Parks (Brooklyn/MLK) also had 11 points.
Buffalo State never led, but trailed just 31-24 at the half. The Bengals shot just 22-percent in the second half (30-percent for the game), however, and Cortland pulled away.
The Bengals will visit Albany College of Pharmacy tomorrow for a non-conference clash at 2 p.m.
