Moorestown senior Jake Ramage, whose recruiting stock soared after his strong showing in summer basketball leagues and tournaments, has decided to play at Bucknell. The 6-foot-4 shooting guard made an oral commitment Monday, said Moorestown coach Steve McGair. As a member of the Patriot League, Bucknell doesn't offer scholarships, but McGair said Ramage had turned down "at least a half dozen" Division I offers. "He wanted Bucknell because of its academic reputation," McGair said.

Bucknell shot a school-record 69.2 percent from the field last night to defeat Drexel, 98-89, in an East Coast Conference game at the Physical Education Athletic Center. The Bison sharpshooters were able to offset a game-high, 36-point performance by Drexel senior Michael Anderson. Anderson, playing his last home game, added seven assists and four steals. "We played terrible defense," said Drexel coach Eddie Burke. "Our team has performed well in the past because of good defense.

Bucknell has played on the grand stage of the NCAA Tournament more than once in the past 6 years and owns postseason victories over Kansas and Arkansas. So even facing the top-ranked team in the nation shouldn't have fazed the Bison. Coach Dave Paulsen thought otherwise after Bucknell missed too many open shots in a first half that quickly slipped away in an 80-61 loss at No. 1 Syracuse. "I thought our team in the first half came in in awe of them," Paulsen said. "We have tremendous respect for Syracuse and their ability and their talent, but we'd like to think that we would not come in in awe. We had some decent looks and couldn't knock them down.

Shannon McGowan has never cringed at the question, but she has always responded in a forceful manner. For years, people have asked Shannon, who recently completed a good basketball career at Bishop McDevitt High, whether she was going to be like her sister, Jenny, who recently completed an outstanding basketball career at La Salle University. "We're not the same person," Shannon has always said. "We can't be expected to do the same things. We play different positions . . . She paused.

The big question in the East Coast Conference: What will happen in 1990-91 when Lafayette, Lehigh and Bucknell abandon ship for the Colonial Conference? Unless the conference picks up a sixth school, it will lose its automatic bid to the NCAA tournament. Coach Butch van Breda Kolff has left Lafayette for Hofstra. His assistant, John Leone, will take over the Leopards (19-10), who led the ECC in scoring defense last season (64.8 points per game). Senior forward Otis Ellis (Germantown Academy)

Time to put the nation's elite teams on alert. Bucknell is ready to shake up the brackets again and block some top team's path to the Final Four. One year after pulling off a memorable tourney upset, Kevin Bettencourt scored 23 points to help host Bucknell cap a perfect Patriot League season with a 74-59 win over Holy Cross in the title game last night. Bucknell (26-4) went 17-0 in Patriot League play, including three conference tournament wins, to earn its second straight NCAA Tournament berth and fourth overall.

The previous week, Princeton had suffered the humiliation of ending Columbia's historic losing streak. Yesterday, the Tigers vented a week's worth of frustration by defeating winless Bucknell, 45-31, in front of an unhappy homecoming crowd of 8,645 at Memorial Stadium. "This isn't the best game we ever played, but we had to do a lot of soul- searching this week," Princeton quarterback Jason Garrett said. "Under the circumstances, we showed character. " Garrett led an offense that accumulated 605 yards - only 24 short of the school record, set against Williams in 1950.

LEWISBURG, Pa. - For Penn football coach Al Bagnoli, his 125th win as head coach was bittersweet. The Quakers' 31-10 road victory over Bucknell on Saturday made Bagnoli the winningest head coach in Penn history. But he was hardly pleased with his team's performance after a sluggish first half during which the Quakers (3-1) trailed most of the time before taking a 10-7 halftime lead against the winless Bison, who fell to 0-5. "I'm pretty disappointed with how we played, especially in the first half," Bagnoli said.

WILL CUMMINGS wasn't letting what could have been his final game as a Temple Owl end in disappointment last night. The senior guard threw North Broad Street on his back in the process, putting up a herculean 30-point, seven-rebound effort in a 73-67 win over Bucknell in the opening round of the NIT. The 30 points were a season high for the Owls and just one point shy of a career best for Cummings. Josh Brown, who dropped 11 points off the bench, and fellow guard Quenton Decosey (13 points)

Temple initially had trouble shaking off its NCAA blahs and just as much difficulty with a Bucknell team that played with passion and energy and plenty of fight on Wednesday. It ultimately took a season-best performance by senior point guard Will Cummings to extend his Temple career and his team's season. Cummings scored 30 points, one below his career high, as top-seeded Temple shook off No. 8 Bucknell, 73-67, in the opening-round NIT game at the Liacouras Center. Temple (24-10)

As disappointed as Temple was for being excluded from the 68-team NCAA field, imagine how the Owls will feel if they have a quick ouster from the NIT? That's why coach Fran Dunphy knows that if the top-seeded Owls (23-10) are feeling sorry for themselves, they could be in trouble when they host No. 8 Bucknell at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the opening game at the Liacouras Center. Bucknell (19-14) was the regular-season Patriot League champion and was ousted from the conference tournament in the semifinals by eventual champ Lafayette.

The statistics and the rankings suggest that 12th-ranked Villanova isn't supposed to have that much trouble defeating a team from the Patriot League, but don't tell that to Jay Wright. As with Lehigh last Friday, the Wildcats sweated out another tight one against a Patriot League squad, this one a Legends Classic contest Thursday night at the Pavilion against Bucknell, and they needed a 9-0 run at the end to take a 72-65 victory over the upset-minded Bison. Bucknell (1-2) was coming off a 24-point loss Monday night at Michigan, but it appeared to have all the answers on the Main Line, taking a 65-63 lead with 1 minute, 51 seconds to play on the last three of 10 straight points by junior Chris Hass, who had a game-high 32 points on just 12 shots from the floor.

In his eight-year career as a golf professional, Rusty Harbold says, the largest check he has ever cashed for his performance in competition was $750. After carding a 5-under-par 67 Tuesday to grab the lead at the Haverford Trust Classic, the most lucrative event in the Philadelphia Section PGA, Harbold has a shot at earning 100 times that much by collecting the winner's check for $75,000. The problem is, rain and lightning engulfed the Sunnybrook Golf Club course in Plymouth Meeting shortly after 5:30 p.m., forcing the suspension of play with 29 players yet to finish.

John Pieper could have taken the safe choice out of high school and attended Air Force, but there was something intriguing about Drexel and its fledgling rowing program. "They'd only had their varsity program for a couple of years," Pieper, now a senior with the Dragons, said Thursday. "They had no big titles, no big names in rowing. In one sense, it definitely was a gamble choosing Drexel. But what I saw was a young team that had a lot of passion behind it. The athletic department was putting a lot of time, energy, money, and resources into the program.
