With its best player scoring six of the game's first 13 points, Buffalo trailed the nation's second-ranked women's basketball team by only a single point.
Buffalo was perhaps feeling good about its chances of staying close in a tough environment.
''I thought we started the game very well. The first 10 minutes we were executing offense, we were handling their...
