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...

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.

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...

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...
Mike Muscala scored 14 points and Cameron Ayers and Bryson Johnson got 11 each as unbeaten Bucknell coasted past West Alabama 69-52 Sunday.
