LEWISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Joe Willman and Mike Muscala each had a double-double to help Bucknell cruise to a 75-49 win over Navy on Saturday night.

Muscala finished with 11 points, 17 rebounds and five assists for the Bison (16-8, 7-1 Patriot League). Willman finished with 18 points and 10 rebounds, while Bryson Johnson also had 18 points.
