The Bucknell Bison have some showing and proving to do still considering they didn’t play anybody in their season opener, and it will be interesting to see if they can repeat their efforts offensively. With that said, Bucknell is still the better team here and will have arguably the two best players on the court. I’ll take the Bucknell Bison and whatever the line is once it’s released.
