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.

Now that he's earned his 400th career coaching victory, La Salle men's basketball coach John Giannini doesn't expect things to be a whole lot different. "They're still going to charge me bus fare. If I go out to dinner tonight, they are still going to charge me there," Giannini said Saturday after the Explorers' 78-52 rout of visiting Bucknell. "The 400 doesn't really mean anything to me or any coach. But beating Bucknell to me is a big deal. " It should be. Last year when the teams faced each other, the Bison had their way with the Explorers, dropping them, 89-77, at La Salle.

Three years ago, Germantown Academy's Chuck Boddy wasn't even a wrestler. Two years ago, he tried the sport for the first time and won four more matches than he lost. Last week, about five weeks ahead of his senior season, Boddy orally committed to wrestle at Bucknell for college. Wait, rewind. Two years in the sport, a career 51-23 record, and a scholarship offer? How? Boddy, a heavyweight who picked up the sport uncharacteristically late - many join the wrestling fraternity before the age of 10 - garnered just one Division I scholarship offer.

"I rehabbed for about four or five months," Brown said. "The physical therapy did wonders. It brought my knee to a strength it's never been before.

UConn earned a No. 3 seed by winning five games - four against ranked teams - in five days to become the Big East champion.
