Youth Catches Up With Bucknell Bison

Despite a 19-point effort by Darryl Shazier, the 2nd-seeded Bucknell Bison dropped a 67-64 decision to the 7th-seeded Holy Cross Crusaders. As a young team will do, all the little things went wrong. Poor shooting and a 10 for 17 effort at the line for the Bison. Andrew Beinert banked in a three with 1:57 to go to put Holy Cross up by four and the Bison didn't have an answer.

The Bison have a lot to be proud of and to build upon. With winning 8 out 11 down the stretch and earning the 2nd seed, the Bison are now out of the shadow of Pat Flannery. 2010-11 season will be Dave Paulson's team. The Bucknell faithful will also have everyone returning with the exception of Pat Behan. The senior hampered by a foot injury tonight was held scoreless in his final collegiate game.

It may have been Behan's leadership coming off the bench and saving the season for Bucknell. The Bison finish the season at 14-17.
