    STORRS, Conn. (AP) -- Greg Gamble scored 25 points to lead Buffalo to an 89-82 win over Ohio Valley Wednesday in the first round of the 2K Sports College Hoops Classic.

    Andrew Atman added 16 for the Bulls (1-0), who will face Connecticut, a 69-65 first-round winner over Morgan State.

    Ohio Valley (0-1) had four players in double figures, led by Micah Mill's 16 points. Chris Leborious had 14.

    Buffalo's first points came more than 3 minutes into the game on two free throws after Ohio Valley's Jacob Borner was whistled for an unusual technical foul. He entered the game with different jersey number (25) than the one listed on the roster (23).

    Buffalo was trailing 36-32, when it went to a pressure defense. Atman scored nine of his 12 first-half points down the stretch and the Bulls took a 47-46 lead into the half. He was 3-of-3 from 3-point range.

    The Bulls led by as many as 14 in the second half, but Ohio Valley used a trapping defense to make a late run.

    The Fighting Scots cut the lead to three, 84-81, late, but Buffalo hit its free throws down the stretch and held on.
