They haven't been to the dance since 1989, but they are holding onto a 10 point lead over Holy Cross with 4:00 left to play...

61-57 with 7 seconds to go, timeout Holy Cross...

Bucknell is 15 minutes away from my home town, they were in the tourney twice in the late '80s, that's why I started following basketball.

Game set match, the Patriot League championship is theirs. This is the first time they have won the Patriot League. the last time they were in the dance was 1989.

Way to go Bucknell Bison!



They could play UNC first round, they'll probably be a 16 seed.





Kevin Bettencourt made two free throws with eight seconds left as Bucknell blew a 20-point lead then held on to beat Holy Cross 61-57 in the Patriot League championship on Friday, giving the Bison their first trip to the NCAA Tournament since 1989.

Despite its 24 wins and the 16-game winning streak that ended Friday, the loss on its home court will most likely cost Holy Cross a chance at the NCAAs. No Patriot League team has ever been invited without winning the conference title.

Bucknell, which had impressive victories over Pittsburgh, Niagara and Saint Joseph's this season -- had never won the Patriot League Tournament title. The Bison have been to the NCAAs twice -- they also went in 1987 -- losing in the first round each time.

They were a 16 seed both the other tiems, I don't remember who they played or what the outcomes were, but they were obviously overmatched each time. But hey, they 're in the Patriot league, for chrissakes, not the ACC...

1987 - Georgetown 75, Bucknell 53 (1 vs 16)

1989 - Syracuse 104, Bucknell 81 (2 vs 15)


That's a big accomplishment for a small school like that. And its not like its by accident, they didn't "accidentally" beat Pitt or St Joe's, they must be a solid team. I'm sure they're partying it up on that campus tonight!

Don't you mean the Syracuse Bracket LOL

I liked the old days of East, Wouth Midwest and West...

That's promising, especially with BC continueing thier late-season free-fall. The Central Susquehanna Valley is getting put on the map!

What are the odds of an upset of Kansas?

Graduation Rate A 'dirty little secret' seldom mentioned during March Madness. Schools like Bucknell, Fairfield and Colgate lead the nation. 'Nuff said
