LEWISBURG, Pa. -- Bucknell junior center Nana Foulland earned his third Fifth Quarter Fresh Bison Athlete of the Week on Monday after a pair of milestone performances in Bison victories last week.
Late in the first half of Wednesday's 76-63 home victory over Loyola, Foulland became the 40th player in Bucknell men's basketball history to notch 1,000 career points. He is the 21st to do it in his third varsity season, and he is the 19th Bison to record 1,000 points and 500 rebounds.
Foulland logged 11 points, eight rebounds and a pair of blocks in just 25 minutes of action against the Greyhounds. Bucknell led that game by as many as 28 points and sailed home from there.
Foulland then turned in one of his best performances of the season on Saturday as league-leading Bucknell came from behind to defeat second-place Boston University 70-59 at Sojka Pavilion. After a 1-for-4 start, Foulland converted 10 of his last 11 field-goal attempts and finished with a career-high-tying 23 points along with six rebounds and four blocked shots.
Foulland moved past Mike Bright into fourth place on Bucknell's career blocks list. He also slid up to 37th place on the all-time scoring list with 1,026 points.
For the season, Foulland now ranks seventh nationally in field-goal percentage (.638), and he is shooting 67.1 percent in Bucknell's eight Patriot League games. He ranks sixth in the conference in scoring (15.0), second in rebounding (8.3) and first in blocks (2.0).
Bucknell is 15-6 overall and 7-1 in the Patriot League. The Bison have a two-game lead over Boston University, Lehigh and Navy, who sit in a tie for second place at 5-3.
Next up is a trip to Lafayette on Wednesday night at 7 p.m.
