HAMILTON, N.Y. (AP) – Mike Muscala hit a jump shot with 2:09 to go to lift Bucknell past Colgate 62-61 on Saturday.
In the possessions following Muscala’s shot, which gave Bucknell its first lead, Ben Johnson missed a 3 and Kyle Roemer had a block for the Raiders (5-14, 1-4 Patriot League). After the block, Darryl Shazier stole the ball back for Bucknell (7-14, 2-3), but Muscala missed a 3-pointer with 14 seconds left.
Colgate didn’t get a shot off the rest of the way.
The Raiders led 61-57 on Roemer’s jumper with 4:09 left. Bryan Cohen then hit a free throw for the Bison and Mitch Rolls had a steal. Muscala hit a layup on the other end to pull Bucknell within 61-60 with 2:43 left.
G.W. Boon had 17 points and Muscala 16 for the Bison, who equaled their win total from last season.
Roemer finished with 19 points and Yaw Gyawu had 14 in Colgate’s fourth-straight loss.
