Bucknell Clinches Share of Patriot League Title - Mar 3, 2019

Andrew Funk
Lewisburg, PA-Bucknell clinched a share of their eighth Patriot League title in the last nine years with a comeback 62-61 win over Army. Bucknell was down 14 points with nine minutes to play. Their stellar defense and clutch offense helped them claw their way back into the game.

For the second time in two home games, Bucknell was led in scoring by freshman Andrew Funk (6'4''-G-99). Funk, was 5-of-9 on three pointers including two huge ones when Bucknell was down in the second half. At 6'4, Funk is taller than most other guards in the Patriot League and is able to get his shot off over the shorter defenders. Funk also was able to hit some clutch free throws down the stretch. This was the first time that coach Nathan Davis trusted Funk to be in at the end of the game. Funk also has a good wingspan and used it to bother his brother and Army PG, Tommy Funk throughout the second half. Andrew was able to get a key deflection in the final two minutes that forced an Army turnover.

Guard Kimbal Mackenzie was able to score 15 points for the Bison despite shooting 1-of-5 from deep. Mackenzie showcased his ability to get out in transition and get several buckets that way. Mackenzie has struggled with his three point shot recently and will need to get that in order if Bucknell hopes to go to their third straight NCAA tournament. He is one of the more explosive players in the Patriot League, but consistency has plagued him this year.

Forward Nate Sestina is one of the most physically imposing players in the Patriot League and was able to showcase this to the tune of a season high 17 rebounds. Sestina left the game after a hit to the head but was able to return. Sestina uses a big upper body to box out. He was able to outmuscle Matt Wilson on the glass for much of the night. Offensively, Sestina struggled especially from three where he went 1-of-7. He was able to get open looks just struggled to capitalize. Like Mackenzie, Sestina will need to be more consistent in the post season for the Bison if they hope to make the tournament.

Army forward Matt Wilson was the leading scorer in the game with 21 points. He was dominant and Sestina really struggled to get him off the block. Wilson has a good up and under move that is effective because of his hook shot out of the post. He uses both moves to make defenders feel uncomfortable. Wilson was also able to contribute on the boards with eight rebounds. Point Guard Tommy Funk contributed with ten points, six rebounds and five assists but was frustrated into six turnovers. Down one with 10.9 seconds left, it was Funk's ill-advised pass that resulted in a turnover and Army did not even get a shot attempt at the end of the game.

Army will face Lehigh on Thursday as the sixth seed in the Patriot League tournament. Bucknell will be the two seed and will host the winner of Holy Cross at Lafayette.
