Men's basketball: Four Bison seniors help make history

Four Bison seniors help make history


Klebon, the local of the group out of Southern Columbia, has become a fan favorite near the end of the season. Students chanted his name for a late appearance on Senior Day and he responded with a bucket that ignited the Sojka Pavilion crowd.

"Senior day was rough, no doubt about that, but graduation day is going to be even more difficult," said Bucknell coach Dave Paulsen. "This entire group came in and really bought into what we wanted to do from day one. It was about toughness and focus and embracing the process.

"They came and really laid a foundation of success for us."

Combined, the group has appeared in nearly 450 games with 310 career starts.

"I don't know if any of us envisioned this sort of thing happening," said Johnson. "When we played together in the summer that first year, I think we knew something was possible, but this ... I don't know."
