HAMILTON, N.Y. -- Stephen Brown led five Bison in double figures with a career-high-tying 21 points, pacing Bucknell to an 83-69 win at Colgate on Saturday afternoon at Cotterell Court. Nana Foulland recorded his eighth double-double of the season with 13 points and 12 rebounds as Bucknell improved to 13-6 overall and 5-1 in the Patriot League.

A 26-2 run bridging the halftime break was the difference, as Bucknell snapped a four-game losing streak to the Raiders (4-15, 2-4 PL).

Brown added six assists and three steals with no turnovers in addition to recording his second career 20-point game. Zach Thomas finished with 15 points and eight rebounds, Kimbal Mackenzie added 14 points, and freshman Bruce Moore brought terrific energy off the bench with a career-high 10 points and six rebounds. Moore was a perfect 4-for-4 from the field, including a couple of 3-pointers.

The starting backcourt of Brown and Mackenzie combined for 9 assists and no turnovers in 59 minutes. The team committed only 10 miscues, with a handful of those coming late in a one-sided game.

Bucknell trailed 18-15 before closing the first half on an 18-2 run over the final 8:07.

Brown started the surge with consecutive 3-pointers, then he assisted on a Nate Sestina layup and an Avi Toomer trey. Mackenzie capped a run of 13 straight points by banking in a long jumper from the top of the key while drawing contact. A Thomas triple and a jam by Foulland off a nifty wraparound feed from Brown gave the Bison a 33-20 lead at the break.

Two seasons ago at Cotterell Court, Colgate quickly erased a double-digit halftime deficit with a big run to start the second half. This time it was the Bison extending the margin to 21 with an 8-0 surge over the first 3:17.

The Raiders hung around with some solid 3-point shooting, but back-to-back triples by Moore and Brown gave the Bison their largest lead of 22 points at 64-42 with 7:44 left.

Colgate got as close as 13, but some big buckets by Foulland and Thomas down the stretch preserved the win.

"I thought once we got off our heels and started guarding them, the game changed," said head coach Nathan Davis. "We got stops and made them take some tough shots. We lost a little focus when we had the big lead at the end, but overall it was a very good performance on the road."

Bucknell bounced back from Wednesday's home loss to Lehigh and still has not lost consecutive games this season. The Bison improved to 6-4 on the road overall and 4-0 in league play.

The Bison shot 56.0 percent for the game -- 14-for-25 in each half -- and went 9-for-18 from the 3-point arc. Colgate shot 44.8 percent and was 9-for-25 from long distance. Bucknell outscored Colgate 18-8 at the foul line and finished with a 37-24 edge on the glass.

Will Rayman led Colgate with 19 points, while Sean O'Brien added 15.

After playing four of its first six league games on the road, Bucknell will now have four of the next six at home, starting with Loyola on Wednesday.
