Army Black Knights Fall to Bucknell Bison

WEST POINT – The Army West Point men’s basketball team dropped a 96-75 decision to Patriot League frontrunner Bucknell here Saturday afternoon.

The Bison jumped out early and never looked back using hot shooting and strong defense to nab their fifth-straight victory and a league-best ninth win in conference play. The Black Knights fall to 2-8 in the league and 8-14 overall.

Three Cadets reached double digits with Tommy Funk’s 14 point leading the way. Mac Hoffman and Jason Houle added 12 points apiece. Houle’s mark was a career best for the sophomore. He finished 4-of-7 from downtown to tie Bucknell’s Stephen Brown for a game high.

Kennedy Edwards led Army on the boards with seven rebounds, while Jordan Fox and Funk handed out a team-best six assists each.
