Cornell vs Bucknell

Bucknell 63, Cornell 60

  •  

LEWISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Mike Muscala led Bucknell with a double-double, Bryan Cohen added 13 points and Bryson Johnson knocked down a trio of foul shots in the final 25 seconds to seal the Bison's 63-60 win over Cornell on Saturday.

Muscala, who finished with 18 points and 13 boards, led a pair of second-half Bucknell runs with back-to-back baskets to begin each, bringing the Bison (9-6) back from a halftime deficit.

The Big Red pulled within two, 56-54, with 2:21 remaining, but Johnson preceded his late clutch foul shooting with a 3-pointer at the 1:49 mark to increase the Bison's cushion back to five. That set the stage for his 3-for-4 performance at the charity stripe in the game's final 25 seconds to seal it.

Johnson finished with 12 points for Bucknell.

Johnathan Gray led Cornell (4-8) with 18 points.
