Flannery back for Bison

From the Bucknell Sports Info release:

Bucknell Basketball Head Coach Pat Flannery to Return to the Bench Tonight
Bison Mentor to End Leave of Absence for Lafayette Game

LEWISBURG, Pa. - Bucknell head men's basketball coach Pat Flannery will return to the Bison sideline for tonight's Patriot League contest at Lafayette. On Jan. 23 Flannery began a temporary leave of absence, citing a series of medical developments, and he subsequently missed three games.

Throughout the leave of absence, Flannery remained active in the team's daily practices and game preparations but did not accompany the team on its road trip to American and Navy last week. Flannery has been cleared to return to the bench by his medical team and Bucknell director of athletics and recreation John Hardt.

A 1980 graduate of Bucknell and a former Bison point guard, Flannery is in his 11th season as head coach at his alma mater. He is the Patriot League's longest-tenured head coach, and his 163 victories are second-most in Bucknell annals, behind only Flannery's former coach Charlie Woollum.

Now 14-6 overall and 5-2 in Patriot League play, Bucknell this weekend visits Lafayette on Friday and Lehigh on Sunday. The Bison and American are tied for second place in the Patriot League, one game behind league-leading Holy Cross.
