LEWISBURG, Pa. - Bucknell defeated Lehigh 81-70 to clinch its first Patriot League regular-season title since 1995 on Wednesday at sold-out Sojka Pavilion.
The Bison, now 22-4 overall for only the second time in school history, can become the first Patriot League team ever to complete an unbeaten league slate with a victory over Army in Saturday's regular-season finale at Sojka Pavilion.
Bucknell tied the Patriot League record with its 13th conference win while pulling within two victories of the school single-season record. Bucknell has now won 17 straight games against league foes and 23 PL games in a row at home.
