LEWISBURG, Pa. -- The Bucknell men's basketball team wrapped up a successful first semester with a 75-64 victory at Fairfield on Tuesday night. The Bison are 7-3 against a challenging schedule thus far, and now the team has an 11-day break for final exams before resuming the schedule on Dec. 17 at Siena.
Here are some ways to follow the team throughout the holiday break period:
HOLIDAY TICKET PACKAGE:
Fans may purchase tickets to the next three home games for a total of just $25. Games include Mount St. Mary's (Dec. 19), Princeton (Dec. 22) and Army West Point (Jan. 2).
Note that this price is not valid with any other discounts, and is only good for these three games. The three-game ticket package is available while supplies last on seats.
The Dec. 22 game against Princeton is Geisinger Health Plan water bottle giveaway night.
Fans may purchase the package ONLINE, over the phone at 570-577-1000, or in person at the Campus Box Office.
BACKCOURT CLUB LUNCHEON:
The first of the monthly Backcourt Club Luncheons is slated for Thursday, Dec. 8 at noon at La Primavera Restaurant on Rt. 45 in Lewisburg. Coach Nathan Davis and select Bison student-athletes will speak at the luncheon.
The $10 admission includes a buffet lunch and raffle prizes.
Additional luncheons are scheduled for Jan. 12, Feb. 9, and Feb. 23.
FAN BUS TRIPS:
The first of five fan bus trips is slated for Dec. 17 to the Siena game at the Glens Falls Civic Center.
Buses are open to all comers and will fill on a first-come, first-served basis. They will depart on game day in front of the Kenneth Langone Athletics & Recreation Center. Bus tickets alone can be purchased, or you may purchase a combo ticket to include the bus, game ticket and pregame reception (offered at select contests).
Please note that buses will not run unless they are filled.
Registered members of the Bucknell student spirit group, the Bison Backers, can ride any fan bus free of charge. Passengers are still responsible for game or tailgate/reception tickets. Bucknell students who are not members of Bison Backers can ride the bus for half price.
Additional bus trips are scheduled for Dec. 30 (Navy), Jan. 25 (Lafayette), Jan. 28 (Army West Point) and Feb. 8 (Lehigh).
