Jan 6, 2007 - 10:36 PM BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (Ticker) -- Ali Mann continued Bowling Green's tear through the Mid-American Conference.

Mann scored 24 points and Megan Thorburn added 21 as No. 19 Bowling Green rolled to its 27th straight win over a MAC opponent with a 75-42 victory over Buffalo.

Mann shot 9-of-12 with a pair of 3-pointers and Thorburn finished 4-of-8 from the arc.

Belinda Gibb and Heather Turner scored 11 points apiece for the Bulls (5-9, 0-2), who shot 32 percent (15-of-47) and committed 26 turnovers, leading to 30 points for the Falcons.
