After an impressive run in the NCAA tournament last season (see story HERE), the
Bison are poised to win the Patriot League once again this season, after returning a majority of the team that helped them win the first game the
Patriot League has ever won in the tournament.
An upset over perrenial power Syracuse (at the Carrier Dome!) highlights the year so far. How far will they take it this season? Only time will
tell, but I'm telling you now that they won't be a 14 seed again this year....
Villanova was ready for the Bison on Tuesday, giving them thier first loss of the season, 79-60. The top teams are startign to take notice of this
program, and won't allow Bucknell to sneak up on them anymore.
Bucknell might stil suprise some teams i mean can you ever really get used to hearing Bucknell Bison as a top team........ NO!!!!! To me Bucknell is
still a sleeper ...NOT!!!!! but I just cant get used to them being a top team its just wierd to me anyway dont sleep on Boston University they are
Well, Bucknell predictably did not so hot at Cameron Fieldhouse, losing 50-84. They just dont' have the talent level that Duke does. This was the
first time that the Bison have faced a #1 ranked team, and I'm still damn proud of them.
Bucknell is still going strong, having most recently beaten Patriot League scoring leaders Lafayette 62-32. Thier record is 13-3, 4-0 in the Patriot
league. I think they are on a roll, and will delve further into the field of 64 than the surprise (?) victory over Kansas in last year's tourney.

Well, they defeated Army 70-47 yesterday to become the first team in Patriot League history to go through the regular season undefeated in league
play. If they somehow manage to lose a game in the league tournament, I would think they will still get an at-large bid to the big dance.
Well, that wasn't thier best performance of the season, but Memphis is a much more physical team. If they could have hit a few more treys, the
outcome would have been different, but the shots just weren't coming today.
Congratulations on a great season, gentlemen! :approve:
