Sophomore guard Dae Dae Grant was candid about why Miami’s comeback effort wasn’t enough to beat the Buffalo Bulls Thursday night. “First off, I’ll put it on me,” Grant said. “Coming out of the (timeout), coach drew up a play, and I turned the ball over.” Grant’s late-game turnover was costly, as his team lost, 74-63, at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse.

The loss to Akron was quickly overshadowed by Miami’s recent win against Kent State Saturday afternoon.
