Campus spirit and anticipation have escalated since the men’s basketball team made it to the NCAA March Madness Bracket after defeating Lafayette 64-56 in the Patriot League Tournament final. The University is the No. 11 seed in the East Region and is scheduled to play Butler, the No. 6 seed, on March 21 at 12:40 p.m. If the Bison win, they will play either Marquette or Davidson on March 23.

There has been talk of a possible parade in Lewisburg if the Bison win their upcoming games.

“If they win one or two games, I’ll have a fire-truck parade through downtown,” Judy Wagner, mayor of Lewisburg, said. “I’m sure we’ll have a very great welcome home for them.”

“The prospect of the mayor throwing a parade for the men’s team shows extreme support from the town of Lewisburg for Bucknell,” Anna Jones ’16 said.
