The Mid-American Conference announced the selections for the all-MAC squads Monday. The Bulls tied with Eastern Michigan and Miami (OH) for the most selections at five.

Buffalo (23-8, 15-3 MAC) was the only team with two players on the first-team: junior guard CJ Massinburg and junior forward Nick Perkins. Massinburg led the team in points and rebounds per game at 17.4 and 7.5 respectively. His scoring puts him fourth in the MAC and his rebounds rank sixth. Perkins came off the bench for 21 of 31 games but played almost 30 minutes per game and led Buffalo in scoring during conference games with 18.2 per game and 16.7 per game for the year. He also added 6.2 boards per contest.

Junior guard Jeremy Harris was named to the all-MAC second team his first season in Buffalo. The junior college transfer was one of the Bull’s best shooters and converted 42 percent on three-pointers and scored 15 points per game. His fellow transfer, senior guard Wes Clark, was selected for the all-MAC third team. He is leading the team in assists with 5.4 per game and is putting up 14.8 points per game.

The Bulls round out their selections with sophomore guard Davonta Jordan for the all-MAC defensive team. Jordan ranks top-15 in the MAC in steals with 1.2 per game.
