Army knocks off Bucknell in quarterfinal, 72-71

LEWISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- Kyle Wilson's jumper with 13 seconds left to play lifted capped an Army comeback that saw the fifth-seeded Black Knights erase a seven-point deficit in the final three minutes to knock off No. 4-seed Bucknell, 72-71 in a Patriot League tournament game Wednesday night.

The victory sends Army (15-15) into a semifinal showdown Saturday with top-seeded Boston University, which routed Lafayette Wednesday, 91-54.

Wilson, who finished with 19 points, scored Army's final nine points, including a 3-pointer with 1:03 left that knotted the score at 70-70. Dylan Cox and Kevin Ferguson added 11 and 10 points.

Brian Fitzgerald hit the first of two free throws to give Bucknell the lead, 77-70 with 35 seconds left, but Chris Hass missed a 3-point attempt as time expired.

Hass finished with 18 points to lead the Bison (16-13). Cameron Ayers and Dom Hoffman added 12 and 10 points, respectively.
