BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Former Cheektowaga star Dominick Welch collected his first double-double of the season with 13 points and 11 rebounds, but it wasn’t enough in a 61-59 loss for St. Bonaventure on Friday.

The Bonnies are now 0-2. They also lost to Ohio at home on Tuesday.

Kyle Lofton led the way for Bona with 14 points, however he was just 1-for-6 from beyond the arc. Welch connected on just two of his eight 3-point shots.

As a team the Bonnies struggled from distance, going 4-for-27. Vermont fared no better, finishing the game 3-for-20 on their 3-pointer attempts.

St. Bonaventure will have three days off before returning to the court to battle Siena Tuesday, Nov. 12 in Albany.
