Just a quick note on Lehigh..... Tejada is a streaky shooter, very hot and cold. Leufroy regressed a bit last year and we are hoping he rebounds. Cohen will be the key to our front court, and quite likely to the season. He is an energy guy who scores and distributes and should be the main man at point. Still in my mind the Bison are clear preseason favorites. Plenty of talent (veteran & just arrived) and very well coached.

The play of Newman will also be critical in spelling Sestina.

I agree. I also see no way LU should be picked ahead of us. Strong backcourt, lots of depth, and very likely POY in Nate S.

I agree as well. We should still be the pick, but it is not a slam dunk anymore. Competitiveness returns to the PL.

Husky, I have to ask...what is your obsession with Newman? He has shown us nothing to think he’d be a major contributor next year. So unless you personally know him I don’t understand why you continue to bring him up. I’ll happily eat crow if I’m wrong. But he wasn’t worth noting this year.

I don’t think it’s an obsession but rather more of a rumination because, you’re right; Newman was a non factor last year. The difference is Newman didn’t need to be anything last year. This year is drastically different.

The team has question marks heading into next season and I too am focused on Newman. Our front court depth is basically non existent if you look at who is behind Bruce and Sestina, two guys who consistently get into foul trouble. In the past, the team has been able to absorb it because of our depth. This year, after a few near misses in recruiting (Milora-Brown and Davis are the first two that come to mind), we are having to rely on a sparingly used Newman to be, likely, one of the first guys off the bench. We’ll know quickly if he’s made strides or if we are in for a long year up front if our starters are plagued with foul trouble or just general fatigue from having to play too many minutes. Also have to remember that Sestina will be coming off surgery on his knee.

All reasons why it would be great to get another PF/C next year. Coach Davis was checking out Robbie Beran yesterday which is a good sign. Hope we are still in the running

I'm sorry you misunderstood my sentiments. I'm not being critical of Newman at all. I hope he makes me great strides between his freshman and sophomore years. I'm saying that with Nate's high rate of picking up fouls, isn't Newman the logical choice for more minutes at the 5? I'm certainly not trying to place the outcome of the season on Paul Newman! That would be entirely unfair to a developmental player.

I totally get what Husky and JD are saying...SOMEBODY has to pick up minutes when Nate needs to rest and/or picks up fouls...and history suggests he will pick up fouls. Not sure of anyone else on the roster that has size/experience to step in for Nate other than Paul. To me he needed to get stronger and add some aggressiveness to his game. Maybe the Bison will go small this year.

It would be really small if Moore is the biggest guy on the court.

Moore is 6'8" and Newman is 6'9" but Bruce is about 30 lbs lighter. He'd get pushed all over on defense. On the other hand, a traditional center could not guard him. I'm hopeful Newman is ready to make a big leap and handle 12-15 minutes per game.

Thanks for reproducing the schedule in a much more digestible fashion than the revamped BucknellBison.com.

Thanks. Unfortunately the Bison site has put form way ahead of function. It is impossible to see the majority of the schedule at one time, and to try to see how it all fits together requires one to do multiple cut and pastes followed by copying it to a spreadsheet to condense it to a useful form. Even the "print" version of the schedule is poorly designed and requires multiple pages to print it. The old version of the schedule was FAR more useful and FAR better designed. The aim of a schedule design should not be to see how complicated it can be made and to see how many pages it can take.

As bad as it is on a computer, it's ridiculous on a phone: I can only see three games at a time on mine.

Glad I'm not the only one having trouble navigating the new site. And why do I have to see the countdown to the football game every time? I get it, there's a game on Saturday. Isn't there one every Saturday?

Fwiw Bucknell’s 2019 spring break is scheduled for March 8th-18th. If we’re lucky enough to host and advance through the Patriot league tournament again this season, the student crowd will be similar to 2013, as opposed to the great student crowds we had the last two seasons.

One take on the NonPower6 Non-Conference Schedule Rankings, with about 255 D1 schools having released schedules :

1 Northeastern (2.0, 93.5)
2 Bucknell (2.1, 91.5)
3 Middle Tennessee (2.111, 94.555)
4 Eastern Washington (2.222, 125.444)
5 Lipscomb (2.272, 101.636)
6 Radford (2.272, 134)
7 Wofford (2.3, 129.6)


The first number in parentheses is the average NCAA quadrant for each game - which incorporates the home/road situation and the opponent's strength. The second number is last year's RPI. Had he listed the rankings in RPI order, the Bison would have been #1 in toughest OOC schedule for non-power conferences. But even if you include all D1 schools, the Bison are #2, trailing only Kansas at this point.

At least one pair of schools has announced a charity exhibition game for the preseason - similar to what many schools did last year under a special NCAA provision. The Bison, you will recall, traveled to Towson for a charity game. Hopefully this means that a lot of schools, including Bucknell, will do this again this year. Perhaps Towson will come to Lewisburg this time.
