LEWISBURG, Pa. -- The next Bucknell Backcourt Club Luncheon will be held on Thursday at 11:45 a.m. at the Lewisburg Hotel on Market Street in downtown Lewisburg. Head men's basketball coach Dave Paulsen will talk about the team, introduce some of the Bison student-athletes and coaches, and look ahead to Saturday's Patriot League opener at Navy.
The $8 admission fee includes a buffet lunch and a raffle ticket for a chance to win Bison basketball-related prizes.
Bison fans are also reminded that the Bison Club and Bertoni's Pizza will be sponsoring a fan bus to Navy on Saturday. The bus will depart from in front of the Langone Athletics & Recreation Center at noon and return immediately following the game.
Bus tickets are $36 (includes bus, pregame reception and game ticket) for the general public and $23 for students. Bison Backers ride the bus free, and need only pay for the game ticket at $8 each.
To reserve a seat on the bus, contact Todd Newcomb at 577-1771.
Saturday's game will be televised live on ESPNU. Tip-off is slated for 5 p.m. at Alumni Hall in Annapolis, Md.
