Joe Willman scored 18 points and top-seeded Bucknell shot 62.7 percent from the field. The Bison (23-8), the defending tournament champions, made 32 of 51 shots to hand the eighth-seeded Midshipmen (3-26) their 21st consecutive defeat. Navy's loss extended its losing streak in Patriot tournament games to 12, the longest conference tournament losing streak in Division I. Bucknell never trailed but didn't pull away until it outscored Navy 15-3 in the final five minutes of the first half.

Calvert Hall graduate C.J. Williams, a running back at Bucknell, was one of only three sophomores named to the Preaseason All-Patriot League Team announced last week. As a freshman, the 6-foot-1, 205-pound Williams was a second-team All-Patriot League selection after rushing 212 times for 899 yards, more than any Bison had amassed in more than 10 years. He had four 100-yard rushing performances and was named to the watch lists for CFPA National Freshman Performer of the Year and for the Jerry Rice Award.

No one was more surprised than Katelyn Miller when the Bucknell graduate learned she had been named the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association Division I Scholar-Athlete of the Year on Tuesday. Miller, who played high school lacrosse at McDonogh, had never even heard of the award -- the highest academic honor in college women's lacrosse. "I didn't even know this existed," Miller said with a laugh. "It was really exciting just because I always try to work my hardest whether I'm on the field or I'm in the classroom.

Baltimore County Police Detective Ed Spragg showed up to work yesterday a sudden celebrity with a slightly bruised ego and a new nickname: "Buffalo Bill." The 25-year veteran of the Baltimore County force gained overnight fame Tuesday when he was knocked on his keister by an escaped bison, making the front page of newspapers, national television newscasts and even snagging the No. 4 slot on ESPN's nightly Top 10 list of sports highlights. "I never took a shot like that on duty before," said Spragg, 49, who managed to escape his showdown with the 700-pound animal without injury.

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. -- In the 1880s, after the herds of bison that once swarmed over the Western plains had been hunted to the brink of extinction, a few hundred of the animals were found living in the mountains of this national park.The Army stepped up patrols against poachers, and park authorities created a ranch in the park to raise bison. The restoration project was so successful that it became a symbol for the Department of the Interior and the National Park Service, which have an image of a buffalo on their badges.

Morgan State shot 50 percent from the field in the first 20 minutes to take a 37-30 lead at the half.

PAWHUSKA, Okla. -- In the most ambitious attempt so far to revive one of America's formerly vast and robust but now moribund ecosystems, 300 bison yesterday galloped headlong onto 5,000 acres of unfenced tallgrass prairie -- there to live free, eat their fill and play a major ecological role, as their ancestors once did.Nervous at first in the presence of nearly 1,000 humans who had come to see them resume their ancient place in nature, nudged along by...

Two baby buffalo went roaming across the southern plains of Anne Arundel County yesterday with dozens of police officers, animal-control officials and wildlife experts in hot pursuit.The 4-month-old, 400-pound bison escaped from their new home on a 36-acre farm in Birdsville shortly after noon Monday and disappeared into the surrounding horse country. Yesterday, they were spotted grazing peacefully at a turf farm more than 12 miles away, but left before they could be captured."They're just babies, and they're scared," said Ricky Owens, who bought the bison Sunday from a breeder in New York.

Towson State spent more than the normal six days preparing for last week's game at Rhode Island."We put a lot of time and effort into our opener," Gordy Combs said of his head coaching debut, a 36-19 defeat. "That was the focus of spring practice and two-a-days since late August. I'm just glad I'm dealing with a resilient group. They shook that game off immediately, and mentally, I think they're doing great."The Tigers are also doing well physically, coming out of the loss with nothing more than the normal bumps and bruises.

A little pre-game adjustment helped Brian Schultz enjoy a career performance. The senior attackman set a career high with six goals on 10 shots and added an assist to propel the top-ranked Loyola men's lacrosse team to a 13-5 rout of Patriot League foe Bucknell before an announced 1,303 at Ridley Athletic Complex in Baltimore on Thursday night. The win did not mean much to the Greyhounds (12-1 overall and 8-0 in the conference) with regards to the conference's regular-season title, as they had already clinched that crown with Saturday's 15-6 victory over Boston University.

Loyola Maryland has won all three games in this series, but the two sides will meet for the first time as Patriot League foes and for the first time since 1983. The Greyhounds are 5-0 at home this season, which does not bode well for a Bucknell team that is just 1-5 on the road. The Bison (7-6 overall and 4-3 in the conference) have won two consecutive games against Mount St. Mary's and Lafayette after losing to No. 11 Army and Fairfield. Their offense sits in the bottom third of Division I at 9.1 goals per game, but the unit does boast a pair of individual standouts.

FRISCO, Texas - Players on Towson's football team declined to pose for pictures with the national championship trophy Friday, with senior linebacker Monte Gaddis insisting there would be plenty of time after the Football Championship Subdivision title game Saturday for him and his teammates to do so. Those plans, however, will have to wait. Before an announced 19,802 at Toyota Stadium, the No. 7 seed Tigers fell to No. 1 seed and two-time reigning national champion North Dakota State, 35-7, in the program's biggest-ever game.

While Towson revels in the program's first appearance in a NCAA Football Championship Subdivision tournament final, its opponent is taking a “been there, done that” approach. North Dakota State will make its third consecutive showing in the FCS title game and has walked away with the national crown in two previous trips. As the No. 1 seed that has compiled a 14-0 record and has won its last 23 games, the Bison have a certain sense of calm about playing in the biggest stage. “Athletes typically function better when they know what the routine is,” coach Craig Bohl said during a national conference call Friday. “You always get concerned about complacency in the middle of that, but this group is a pretty senior-laden football team and very hungry. So everything from practice to lifting to the routine once we're down there that the administration has put into place has certainly been helpful.” But Bohl said the team's comfort level should not be interpreted as complacency.

Along the way to compiling a 14-0 record, extending a winning streak to 23 consecutive game and earning the No. 1 seed in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision tournament, North Dakota State has tangled with, and quieted, a number of talented running backs. But Bison coach Craig Bohl conceded that Towson junior Terrance West - he of the FCS single-season record of 2,410 rushing yards and 41 total touchdowns - is unlike any tailback his defense has faced. “He's at the top of the list, and his numbers bear that out,” Bohl said Friday afternoon during a conference call.

I'M NEVER GOING on vacation again. Every time I take time off, something happens that needs to be properly addressed in the Kickoff section, and God forbid Ray Frager try to do it. I'm referring, of course, to the attack of the tennis-playing bison. I was sitting at the breakfast table Wednesday morning and right there on the front page of The Sun was a photo of a small herd of bison - I prefer to call them buffalo, but apparently there is some subtle difference - congregating on a tennis court in Pikesville.

Almost a year removed from Navy's 12-11 overtime loss to Bucknell, senior defenseman Matt Vernam said the Midshipmen had to do a better job of sliding and filling in the gaps. Apparently, Navy did not take that lesson to heart in Saturday's 14-9 setback to the Bison at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis. Nine of Bucknell's goals came off assists. Four of those assisted tallies occurred when the offense broke a 4-4 tie in the second quarter to enjoy an 8-4 advantage at halftime.

North Dakota State has built itself into a juggernaut in the Football Championship Subdivision, winning the last two national championships and going 23-0 since its last loss on Oct. 13, 2012, when Indiana State pulled off a 17-14 upset in Fargo, N.D. The Bison, who are 14-0 and the No. 1 seed in the NCAA playoffs, will meet No. 7 seed Towson (13-2) in the title game on Jan. 4 at 2 p.m. at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas. Coach Rob Ambrose was quite complimentary on Monday of the team standing in the Tigers' path to the program's first national crown.

The quarterback duo of junior Robert Council and freshman Moses Skillon combined for 18 passes, completing seven for 104 yards in Morgan State's 28-14 loss to Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference foe Howard Saturday at William H. Greene Stadium in Washington, D.C. The number of passing attempts is certainly not the lowest for the offense this season, but Council and Skillon finished with more interceptions (three) than touchdown passes (zero). And in the fourth quarter when the Bears (2-6 overall and 2-2 in the MEAC)
