Colgate vs Bucknell

Bucknell 69, Colgate 61

  •  

LEWISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Mike Muscala scored 27 points and grabbed 12 rebounds and Bucknell led wire-to-wire in a 69-61 win over Colgate on Wednesday night, sweeping the season series.

The double-double was the 18th of the season for Muscala, who has scored in double digits in 29 straight games for the Bison (21-4, 8-1 Patriot League).

Tied with Lehigh atop the league standings, Bucknell has won five straight games and eight of its past nine, including 73-59 over Colgate on Jan. 16. The Bison posted the second-best 25-game start in program history after the 1983-84 team that began its season 22-3.

Bucknell led 34-23 at halftime, but the Raiders (9-17, 3-6) closed to 49-47 with 7:49 left. Muscala's back-to-back layups ended the threat and Colgate could get no closer than four points from there.

Cameron Ayers added 13 points and Bryson Johnson 12 for the Bison.

Murphy Burnatowski's 23 points led the Raiders.
