Amazingly fun atmophere and a great second half especially by Bucknell...awesome job players and coaches! Congratulations!!! So many good moments...but I loved Zach's monstrous block on Kempton. As for the Dance, I see a #13 seed. Any early knowledge of a Selection Sunday viewing party? Maybe at Campus Theatre?

Best game we have put together all year and an awesome atmoshphere. Kimball was the star of the game and Nana really kept everyone focused. Congratulations to the whole team!

Bucknell (and Lehigh) represented themselves very well tonight (well other than the Lehigh student who threw a full water bottle into the mass of students who stormed the court)

Slim, thanks for helping to prepare 2 fine young men, who happen to be pretty good ball players, for the rigors of college life. Keep them coming. Bucknell could always use more student athletes like Thomas and Shazier.

Great Game. Wonderful atmosphere and high level of excitement. Let's keep it up for Friday!!!

One player not mentioned yet is Nate Sestina. When Nana and DJ both sat at the end of the first half with 2 fouls, Nate played some important minutes against Kempton. He messed up his shooting at least twice underneath and scored as well. Helped immensely in the halftime position.

BTW, Kempton is really bush. In the pre-game stretching he was doing, he was on the floor in the end zone, right under the noses of some shirtless Bison fans and was inciting them to scream at him. What an arrogant butt.

I agree with PhD student about Nate! He was fired up tonight and played a good game! He also showed that he could handle Kempton!! What a great night

I also want to give a shout out to our senior class. These guys showed heart, character and made important contributions to this team. I know Johnny A was frustrated throughout this career but he showed up, stepped up and lead.

Proud of them!

As an aside, this may be the best junior class in the history of the PL. Lee and Bettencourt were special too but Thomas, Brown and Foulland are outstanding....and all Paulsen recruits.

Incredible effort by the Bison! Congrats to coaches and players all! Everybody stepped up. Kempton is a beast on offense, but I thought he was especially soft on defense after he picked up a foul. It looked to me like his main concern was not picking up another foul so he could stay out on the floor.

Don't forget the 4th member of that class, the ill fortuned JC Show.

While one of my favorite Patriot League games ever, got frustrated the first half when like in Navy game, Leigh was able to drive by defender on EVERY play. Leigh looked a bit gassed the 2nd half and missed many layups or a tighter game. Not a big fan of zone all the time, but as a change up seems obvious when you can't stay with your man. Davis was the Defensive Coach for Flannery. Dust off some of the old defensive play books from 2004/5 for NCAA's?
Go Bison!

Kempton, as great a Patriot League player as he is, showed why he is unlikely to make NBA. Nana and other Bison bigs were able to keep him relatively under control. Against players his own size, he looked like he was gassed in most of the 2nd half. Still put up good numbers but showed average defense, average movement, and inconsistent shooting (although a load driving to basket). In pros, he would be a step slow with most of his competition able to drive around and jump over him. Suggest Leigh retire his number and think of him fondly because they are unlikely to see him play again unless they buy a trip to Europe or Asia.

Surprised Mackenzie not getting more love on Board. Clutch shots every game at key times.
Read box score and noted this was one of first games Davis went with more focused lineup-5 starters all with 30+ minutes and only 2 subs with more than 10+ minutes. It paid dividends 2nd half.

Yes, Kimbal had a phenomenal game. He has a big heart. Even thought he struggled all night against Navy, he hit that big 3 when it counted.

If it were anyone else, I'd feel bad for him. In his case, not at all. Another postseason failure and it couldn't happen to a more deserving guy. His final act was not applauding for the Bison named to the all-tournament team.
