Rivals meet again


While Holy Cross has five players who average double figures, not a single Bucknell player does. Freshman Mike Muscala, the first Bucknell player to earn All-Patriot League and All-Rookie nods in the same season, leads the way at 9.9 points a game. In addition, seven other players average at least 5.6 points a night.

Just how balanced have the Bison been? The team's top five scorers -- Muscala, Darryl Shazier, Bryson Johnson, Patrick Behan and Bryan Cohen -- have all scored between 263 and 295 points while taking between 222 and 242 shots.

In a five-game span from Feb. 5 to Feb. 21, six different players led the team in scoring and nine different players have had at least one 10-point game and seven different players have led the team in scoring at least once.

"Our low point came in early January," said Paulsen. "After we scored 40 points at Dartmouth, I didn't think we'd break 50 the rest of the year. But the guys have really responded and worked extremely hard.

"I've never heard of team without a double-figure scorer, but this has been an enjoyable team to coach."
