A 12-POINT LEAD had dwindled to three when anxious Bucknell fans pleaded for center Mike Muscala to get the ball. Just as he has all season, the Bison's big man delivered to help get his team back into the NCAA Tournament. Muscala scored six of his 20 points during a decisive second-half stretch to help Bucknell capture its second NCAA Tournament berth in three seasons with a 64-56 win over visiting Lafayette on Wednesday night in the Patriot League title game. Joe Willman had 14 points and eight boards to form a potent frontcourt duo with Muscala, the conference player of the year for the top-seeded Bison (28-5)

Exactly a month had passed between Penn's last home game and Tuesday night's return to the Palestra. Forty days had passed since the Quakers' last win. A matchup with Lafayette - a team that had never beaten Penn in 22 previous meetings on 33d Street - seemed to be the perfect midwinter pick-me-up. It proved to be just the opposite. The Leopards rode an early second-half surge and staved off a frantic Penn comeback to deal the Quakers an 85-83 loss. Penn's offense found a good rhythm in the first half, registering 11 assists while scoring 40 points.

Conner Bor will have a new football team next season. He also will have a new position. Bor, a senior at Bishop Eustace, said Tuesday night that he has committed to attend Lafayette College on a football scholarship. Bor, a quarterback and defensive back in high school, was recruited to play outside linebacker for the Snow Leopards of the Patriot League. "It's really exciting that they think I can play a position I didn't play in high school," Bor said. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Bor, a second-team All-South Jersey defensive back, said he decided on Lafayette after narrowing his choices to the Leopards, Bucknell, Delaware, and Colgate.

PENN HAD NOT won a game since Nov. 28. Penn had not played a game at the Palestra since Dec. 8. Penn had never lost a game at the Palestra to Lafayette. Penn trailed Lafayette by 15 points with 7 1/2 minutes to go at the Palestra. With 3 minutes to go, it was tied. With 3 seconds to go and his team trailing by two points, Penn's Steve Rennard, the lone starter on the floor, was wide open on the left wing beyond the three-point arc. He set his feet and took his time. Lafayette is now 1-22 against Penn at the Palestra.

When the nurses came into the Abington Memorial Hospital delivery room yelling: "Happy New Year!" Sara and Greg Stokes knew their baby was close. "We had to get pushing," said Sara Stokes, of Lafayette Hill. Five minutes later, their daughter Marguerite Lynn - Maggie Lynn - was born. Across the region, hospitals and parents were keeping close tabs to see who had delivered the first baby of 2013. Abington Memorial, where 5,000 infants are born each year, seems to have claimed the title with Maggie Lynn.
