In women's basketball, Bucknell led for nearly the entire game and held onto that despite facing some frenzied defense, beating Morgan State 72-64 at Hill Field House on Sunday afternoon. Three Bison finished in double-digit scoring, led by Shelby Romine with 14 as the Orange & Blue improved to 3-2 and their first over-.500 record since 2008-09.
With her 13 points today, Alyssa Dunn is now averaging 15.2 points this season. Most of the senior's scoring today came in the second half after she was held to just three points in the first. Included in Dunn's total was a 9-for-9 performance from the free throw line, where much of both team's scoring came down the stretch.
A defender draped all over him and playing from behind all of the second half, senior Jerald Williams floated into the paint and lifted a shot over the defender, canning the eight-footer at the buzzer and sending the game into overtime, where the Lycoming College men's basketball team outlasted Wilkes, posting a 109-102 win on Sunday, Nov. 25, at the Marts Center.
Williams had another unreal stat line, posting his second straight double-double with 12 points, 17 assists and seven steals, crossing 600 career assists with his 11th during the game. He has posted three straight games of 10 assists or more for the third time in his career, helping the Warriors improve to 3-1 overall, as his 17 assists were both the second-most in his career and in school history.
Lycoming shot 50 percent (39-for-78) from the field and 71 percent (24-for-34) from the line. Wilkes shot 49 percent (40-for-81) from the field and 40 percent (14-for-35) from 3-point range, but were limited to just 13 free throws. The Warriors also held a 31-24 advantage in points off turnovers.
The Warriors get back in action on Wednesday, Nov. 28, when they host their first Commonwealth Conference game of the season, facing Alvernia at 8 p.m. at Lamade Gym
