LEWISBURG, Pa. -- Mathematicians will be needed to tally up all of the records, awards and honors bestowed on the Bucknell men's basketball team's senior class. The senior group of Bryson Johnson, Colin Klebon, Mike Muscala and Joe Willman are in the midst of a postseason drive and would prefer that mention of those individual accolades be tabled until after the season, but the program will take a few minutes to publicly recognize this outstanding senior class and their families prior to Sunday's home game against Holy Cross at Sojka Pavilion.

Please note that the senior ceremony will begin at 11:55 a.m., and fans are encouraged to arrive early in order to be seated for the presentation. Tip-off is scheduled for 12:13 p.m.

The first 200 Bucknell students to enter Sojka Pavilion will receive a free breakfast sandwich from Burger King.

Some general notes on this year's senior class:
-- Entering Sunday's game against Holy Cross, the Class of 2013 has an overall record of 86-41 (.677) and a Patriot League record of 43-10 (.811).
