    LEWISBURG, Pa. -- Mike Muscala tallied 27 points, three assists and two blocks as Bucknell beat Kent State 76-60 Tuesday night and improved to 8-1 for the first time since 2005-06.

    Muscala added six boards while Bryson Johnson and Ryan Frazier scored 13 points apiece.

    Joe Wilman pulled down 10 rebounds to help Bucknell control the boards, 34-22.

    Bucknell led 32-31 at the break and extended their lead to 43-35 behind a Muscala tip-in. Kent State rallied to close the gap to 57-51 after Chris Evans hit a 3-pointer, but Muscala converted a layup, 3-pointer and a jumper on consecutive possessions to put Bucknell up for good.

    Muscala, who is the only Division I player averaging at least 15 points and 12 rebounds per game, leads Bucknell in most statistical categories, including scoring (17.8), rebounding (12.1), blocks (2.0) and assists (2.0) through nine games.
