Player of the Year candidate Kemba Walker and third seed Connecticut were back at it Thursday, five days after completing five games in five days to win the Big East tournament. Multiple ice baths later, Walker and the Huskies showed no ill effects of their New York marathon as they rolled past 14th seed Bucknell, 81-52, and into the third round of the NCAA tournament. "He didn't look tired at all," Bucknell guard Darryl Shazier said of Walker. The Huskies, who ran their record to 16-1 in opening NCAA tournament games since 1990, will face the winner of Thursday's late game between Missouri and Cincinnati.

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.

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.

Growing up in suburban Toronto, Kimbal Mackenzie used to dream about “playing basketball in the states for college.” The 6-foot-1, 185-pound combo guard thought the best way to make that happen was to leave Canada for high school and enroll at a basketball powerhouse somewhere in the U.S. Two years after enrolling at John Carroll, Mackenzie's plan has come to fruition. The second-team Baltimore Sun All-Metro selection committed to Bucknell on Friday, picking the Bison over offers from Loyola, Siena and UMBC.

Loyola's Erik Etherly led four Greyhounds in double figures with 18 points, and Loyola ended Bucknell's 18-game home winning streak Wednesday, defeating the host Bison, 72-67. Bucknell (8-6) won its last 13 home games a year ago and then its first five at home this season. It had the 11th-longest current streak in Division I. The Greyhounds (9-3) held the Bison to just three points in the final four minutes of the game and none in the last 2:20. Bucknell, which was picked to repeat as Patriot League champion, led 64-61 after a free throw by Steven Kaspar with 4:10 on the clock, but Loyola pulled within a point 14 seconds later on a basket by Justin Drummond.

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.

Kaleo Kina scored 25 points as the host Navy men won their first Patriot League opener in eight seasons by defeating Bucknell, 71-67, yesterday. Kina's free throw with five seconds to play iced the win after Bucknell had rallied from nine points down to within a point. Over the final 3:16, Navy (12-4, 1-0 league) shot 4-for-4 from the field, including 3-for-3 from three-point range to hold off Bucknell and win its fourth in a row. Navy led 55-46 with 5:45 left when Bucknell's G.W. Boon made back-to-back three-pointers and Darryl Shazier hit a jump shot for a 55-54 advantage with 3:45 to play.

Loyola coach Jimmy Patsos has compared Bucknell center Mike Muscala to one of his favorite former NBA players for his hometown Boston Celtics. Muscala is not the second coming of Kevin McHale, but against the Greyhounds on Friday night, the 6-11 senior looked the part of a modern-day mid-major replica. Muscala attracted four NBA scouts to Reitz Arena, as well as plenty of attention from Loyola's big men. He seemed unaffected by both, scoring a game-high 28 points to lead the Bison to a surprisingly easy 66-46 victory.

Navy leads this series between Patriot League rivals, 7-4, but the two sides have split the past four meetings. Seven of the games have ended in one-goal decisions. The Midshipmen (1-2) have won four of five of these contests in Annapolis, but Bucknell (0-3) is the preseason favorite to repeat as league champion. Here are a few factors that could play a role in the outcome at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis on Saturday. 1) Sharing the wealth. Of the offense's 29 goals thus far, 13 have been assisted.

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.

Top-ranked Loyola Maryland's 13-5 thumping of Patriot League foe Bucknell on Thursday night had a deeper meaning considering who was among the announced 1,303 at Ridley Athletic Complex in Baltimore. Kids and parents from Newtown Youth Lacrosse were in attendance as part of a relationship started by sophomore long-stick midfielder Jason Crane (Chesapeake-AA) after the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012. The Greyhounds have traveled to Connecticut to participate in clinics and have hosted the youth league in Baltimore.

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.

Freshman attacker Taylor Poplawski led No. 3 Syracuse (7-1) with a career-high four goals in a 17-12 win over visiting No. 4 Florida (8-2) on Saturday. The Orange held the Gators scoreless for the first 15 minutes of the game while accumulating a comfortable 8-3 lead by the half. Attackers Alyssa Murray, Kayla Treanor and Poplawski each scored two goals for Syracuse in the first-half run. Down 15-7 with 15:09 remaining, Florida went on a 5-0 run, but the deficit proved too much to overcome.

Guard Jarred Jones (John Carroll) and forward Jordan Latham each had 13 points for Loyola, which stormed back from a 12-point second-half deficit to take a 42-35 lead. Bucknell forward Dom Hoffman (10 points, eight rebounds) made a basket with 3:15 left to give the Bison a 52-51 lead.

The best way to describe Navy, according to coach Ed DeChellis, is that the Midshipmen have been consistently inconsistent. “Every time we have won a game, the next game we haven't played very well,” DeChellis said. DeChellis' assessment has been accurate in conference play, where Navy (9-17, 4-11 Patriot League) has failed to win consecutive games. After beating Lafayette at home on Jan. 5, Navy lost by 23 at Boston University two days later. Following their win over Bucknell at home on Jan. 15, Navy was defeated by Colgate by 22 points on Jan. 18. In the wake of beating Army on the road 79-57 on Feb. 8, they lost to Bucknell by 21 points on Feb. 12. Most recently, Navy defeated Colgate by 10 on Saturday, before losing to Lehigh on Wednesday by a score of 72-65.

Guard Quentin Jones tipped in a missed shot with 1.7 seconds left as host UMBC beat Albany, 71-69, Wednesday night. Jones went to the offensive glass after guard Rodney Elliott (John Carroll) missed a floater in the lane with about four seconds left. Jones and Elliott each had 16 points for UMBC (9-16, 5-7 America East), and forward-center David Kadiri came off the bench to score 13. Jones, who entered the game averaging just 6.9 points per contest, had 11 points at halftime to help his team build a 37-27 lead at the break.
