HAMILTON — Tucker Richardson had 23 points in Colgate's 71-65 win against Bucknell on Saturday.

Richardson also added five rebounds, five assists, and four steals for the Raiders (12-7, 6-0 Patriot League). Oliver Lynch-Daniels scored 13 points while shooting 5 for 9, including 2 for 3 from beyond the arc, and added six rebounds and six assists. Jeff Woodward shot 3 of 5 from the field and 4 for 4 from the line to finish with 10 points. The Raiders extended their winning streak to six games.

“Our experience, intensity, and ability to recognize the game that we were in made the difference in the second half," Colgate coach Matt Langel said. "We certainly didn’t play our best and Bucknell played pretty well, which is coming to be normal for us to get everybody’s best shot. I’m proud of this group and their toughness to find a way to make enough plays and get enough separation.”

Andre Screen finished with 20 points for the Bison (7-12, 0-6). Xander Rice added 14 points and two steals for Bucknell. In addition, Alex Timmerman finished with nine points, nine rebounds and four assists. The Bison extended their losing streak to eight in a row.

Both teams next play Wednesday. Colgate visits Holy Cross and Bucknell visits Army.
