    LEWISBURG, Pa. — After wrapping up the Patriot League regular-season title with road wins at Lafayette and Colgate last week, Bucknell swept the league’s weekly awards on Monday. Sophomore guard Bryson Johnson (PGC grad 2005, 2008) earned his first Anaconda Patriot League Player of the Week Award.

    Johnson scored a career-high 30 points in Bucknell’s 74-69 overtime victory at Lafayette last Wednesday. He made his first five 3-pointers of the night and finished 5-for-7 from the arc, 7-for-10 from the field and a perfect 11-for-11 from the foul line. Johnson came back on Sunday and went 4-for-8 from 3-point range and scored 12 points in a 77-69 win at Colgate.

    It was also a milestone week for Johnson, who on Wednesday broke the Bucknell single-season record for 3-pointers made. He now has 84 on the season, breaking the old mark of 79, set by Kevin Bettencourt in 2005-06 and John Griffin in 2007-08.

    On the season, Johnson is shooting 48.0 percent from 3-point range (84-175). That is the fourth-highest percentage in all of Division I basketball. His 3.0 made threes per game ranks 15th in the nation.

    Johnson is second on the team in scoring at 11.7 points per game. He is shooting 47.3 percent from the field, despite a high percentage of his shots coming from long distance, and he is an 82.8 percent free-throw shooter.

    Johnson was a two-time Patriot League Rookie of the Week last season.

    Bucknell is now 20-8 on the season and 11-1 in Patriot League play. The Bison close out the regular season with home games against Lehigh and Army this week, and then they are assured of home-court advantage throughout the Patriot League Tournament.
