    HAMILTON, N.Y. -- Cameron Ayers scored 21 points, making 8 of 14 from the field, and Ben Brackney scored 11 with eight rebounds in leading Bucknell to a 79-68 victory over Colgate on Saturday.

    Colgate jumped out to an 8-2 lead in the first half but the Bison quickly erased that deficit capped by a 3-pointer from Chris Haas in taking a 15-9 lead. Bucknell never trailed for the remainder of the game and built a 39-24 lead at the break.
