LEWISBURG, Pa. -- "Wait a minute, are those Bucknell basketball players coming up my driveway?" Such was a typical surprised and excited reaction from many Bison season-ticket holders this week.
As a way to say "thank you" to many of Bucknell's loyal basketball fans, members of the Bison men's and women's teams headed out into Lewisburg and hand-delivered season-ticket orders. With the start of the season now three weeks away, the student-athletes from both teams had a chance to meet many of the folks who will soon be cheering them on. They posed for photos and answered a few questions about how the teams are shaping up in preseason practice.
For those interested in purchasing season tickets to see Bucknell's defending Patriot League champion men's and women's teams, it is not too late.
