Besides Agnew’s five three-point scores, Underwood had four, Bond two and one from Gavin Harrington gave the Buffaloes 12 for the night. The Buffs led the Cougars 24-16 at the end of the first quarter, 54-25 at the half, and 70-44 going into the fourth and final period where timeouts were suspended, and the game ended 88-53.
