Bucknell signs coach Dave Paulsen to 5-year contract extension after 2nd NCAA trip in 3 years

Bucknell coach Dave Paulsen has been rewarded for taking the program to its second NCAA tournament in three seasons with a five-year contract extension.

The deal announced Thursday morning keeps Paulsen under contract in Lewisburg through the 2017-18 season. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The Bison finished 28-6 this year to set school and Patriot League records for victories. Their season came to an end with a 68-56 loss last week to Butler.

Bucknell has developed a reputation for staunch defense under Paulsen after holding opponents to 37 percent shooting and 57 points a game. Senior center and career scoring leader Mike Muscala is a potential NBA draft pick who had 22 double-doubles this season while also being honored as the league's top scholar-athlete.
