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.
Maryland point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.
Louisville's Chinanu Onuaku, who recently underwent a medical procedure to correct a heart rhythm issue detected during the combine, will keep his name in the NBA draft pool.
Andrew White III will return to the Nebraska men's basketball team next season after removing his name from the NBA draft.
