Leopards' Season Ends in Conference Championship Game
March 13, 2013
Leading 10-8 after a Seth Hinrichs jumper, Bucknell put together a 10-2 run that included a pair of three-pointers by Ben Brackney and a Mike Muscala two-handed slam to take an 18-12 advantage nearly 13 minutes into the game.
Ptasinski ended the game with a team-high 15 points on 7-of-10 shooting. Scott added 13 and Johnson 11 for the Leopards who shot 40 percent from the floor for the game. Johnson and Seth Hinrichs (7 points) were named to the All-Tournament Team.
The Leopards could not get things going from outside, shooting 5-of-15 (33%) while holding Bucknell to 2-of-9 (22%). Lafayette held its own on the glass, outrebounded 36-33.
Muscala, the Patriot League Tournament MVP, finished with 20 points and 11 rebounds, joined in double figures by Willman (14, pts, 8 reb), a fellow All-Tournament selection. The Bison did much of their work at the free throw line, converting 18-of-23 (78%). Lafayette shot 11 free throws in the game, making seven and failed to reach the bonus in either half.
Lafayette finishes its season at 19-15 overall, its best mark since going 19-13 in 2009-10. The Leopards will return three starters for the 2013-14 season.
