Bryan Cohen scored 12 points as Bucknell defeated cold-shooting Colgate 66-50 Wednesday night to win its 11th straight game and remain undefeated in Patriot League play. The Bison (19-6, 9-0), who maintained a two-game lead in the league standings, extended the longest conference winning streak in the nation to 19 games, going back to last season. Bucknell, which never trailed, led by as many as 12 in the first half and 26-15 at the break after the Raiders shot just 17.9 percent (5 of 28) from the field. After Colgate (7-17, 1-8) trimmed the lead to eight to open the second half, Mike Muscala's layup sparked an 11-0 run and the Bison led by at least 16 from there. Muscala and Joe Willman added 11 apiece for Bucknell, which also defeated Colgate 70-57 on Jan. 11. The Raiders had no double-figure scorers, with Sterling Melville's seven points leading the way.
