    HAMILTON, N.Y. -- G.W. Boon scored 11 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to lead Bucknell over Colgate 77-69 on Sunday, clinching its first outright Patriot League regular season title since 2006.

    The Bison (20-8, 11-1) trailed 43-33 with 18:47 remaining, but a Cameron Ayers' jumper capped a 22-8 run as Bucknell took a 55-51 lead with 11:16 left.

    Mitch Rolls made two free throws with 35 seconds on the clock, cutting the deficit to 71-69. Bucknell went 6 for 6 from the free-throw line in the final 28 seconds to seal the victory.

    The win coupled with American University's 64-60 loss to Holy Cross on Sunday, clinched home court advantage throughout the conference tournament for the Bison.

    Nick Pascale scored 18 points and grabbed 15 rebounds for the Raiders (7-20, 4-8). Joe Hoban added 16 points and Yaw Gyawu 13.

    Ayers finished with 14 points and Bryson Johnson added 12 for Bucknell.
