ITHACA, N.Y. -- Mike Muscala scored 20 points and grabbed nine rebounds as Bucknell won its fourth straight with a 75-64 victory over Cornell on Monday night.
The Bison (6-6) also got 17 points and eight rebounds from Bryan Cohen and 15 points and nine rebounds out of Joe Willman. They also evened the all-time series with the Big Red (2-8) at 23 wins apiece. Cornell, playing its first home game in more than a month, suffered its seventh straight defeat.
Cornell, which trailed by as many as eight points in a first half it never led, went ahead for the first time on Errick Peck's jumper -- the first shot of the second half. That gave Cornell a 33-32 advantage, but five lead changes later Willman put the Bison ahead for good on a jumper with 10:55 to play.
Peck, who was 9 of 12 from the field, led the Big Red with 21 points and eight rebounds. Joe Groebe added 15 points for Cornell.
