Ayers leads Bucknell with 17 points, Muscala posts double-double in 60-58 win over Army

Cameron Ayers scored 19 points and Mike Muscala posted his fourth straight double-double to help Bucknell outlast Army 60-58 Saturday for its fourth consecutive win.

Muscala finished with 12 points and 10 boards while Bryan Johnson tallied 17 points, eight rebounds and six assists for the Bison (20-4, 7-1 Patriot League), who won despite not scoring a basket in the final two minutes.

Army (10-13, 3-5) trailed by as much as seven, 35-28, in the second half before cutting the deficit to 52-50 with 4:13 left. But Ayers knocked down a 3-pointer and Johnson converted a trey and a jumper on back-to-back possessions to put Bucknell ahead 60-54.

The Bison went scoreless from that point as Army drew to within two, 60-58, with 1:57 remaining but missed three jumpers in the final minute as Bucknell held on.

Kyle Wilson paced Army with 14 points and Ella Ellis added 10.
