New faces, new style… but same results for Bucknell

Send to Kindle  Kaspar scorched the nets for a career-high 25 in Bucknell’s win over Penn State.   After three seasons at the summit, one could excuse the Patriot League coaches and SIDs for not knowing exactly how to forecast the 2013-14 edition of the Bucknell basketball squad. Having graduated three 1,000 point starters from a 28-6 NCAA qualifier, none of four players starting...

NBA Draft Blog Interview with Mike Muscala

There may not be one single factor that influences his development, good and bad, during college as much as what school he decides to play for. It could be for many different reasons, but under the right circumstances, players could flourish well beyond expectations. Mike Muscala found the right fit for him at Bucknell, and now he is a few days away from hearing his name called at...

Double-double center Muscala boosts Bucknell

One of Bucknell center Mike Muscala's crowning achievements this season took place far from the basketball court. Never mind that the 6-foot-11 senior is the only player in Division I to average 18 points and 11 rebounds a game, or that he leads the NCAA with 22 double-doubles. Making the dean's list is pretty impressive, too. For now, the books can wait. The 11th-seeded...

The development of Mike Muscala

Dave Paulsen's first year at the helm of Bucknell was a rough one. The Bison won four games in the Patriot League and seven total and finished their season by being knocked out of the opening round of the conference tourney. In his second year though, he had a 6-10, 210 pound freshman named Mike Muscala. That year Muscala averaged 10 points, 5 boards, and led the league in blocked...

Bucknell announcer loses it on routine layup

The above clip comes to us from an early season college basketball game between Dartmouth and Bucknell in late November.  Under normal circumstances, this wouldn't be of any significant note, but just listen to how the Bucknell announcer describes a routine lay in by former Patriot League player of the year Mike Muscala early in the second half.  Listen... then slowly back...

Only a Patriot League title will do for Mike Muscala and Bucknell

Assuming a healthy senior season, Bucknell center Mike Muscala will leave the Lewisburg, Pa. school with his mark all over the Bison record book. (Credit: Marc Hagemeier) Entering the year with 1,399 points and 715 rebounds, he has a reasonable chance to finish as the program’s all-time leading scorer (Al Leslie scored 1,973 points from 1977-1981) and an outside shot at finishing...
