WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) - Chris Hass sank five 3-pointers and finished with 26 points on 9-for-13 shooting to lift Bucknell to a 78-75 win over Army on Sunday.

Zach Thomas also went 5 of 7 from behind the arc to contribute 17 points and Nana Foulland added 16 points. Bucknell (15-12, 10-4 Patriot League) shot 52.9 percent from the floor, including 13 of 17 from long range, to win its third straight and take sole possession of first place atop the conference.

Bucknell led by five at the break and took the lead for good early in the second half with a 3-pointer from John Azzinaro to make it 40-37 with 15:39 left. Army (14-11, 5-9) stayed close but struggled from long range, hitting just 4 of 16, and couldn’t overtake the Bison down the stretch.

Tanner Plomb led the Black Knights with 19 points, Kyle Wilson added 18 and Dylan Cox 15.
