WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) Nana Foulland had 21 points and nine rebounds, Zach Thomas added 15 points and Bucknell held off Holy Cross 68-67 on Saturday as neither team made a field goal in overtime.

Foulland's dunk with 1:17 left in regulation put Bucknell in front until Jehyve Floyd made 1 of 2 free throws to tie it at 66. After Foulland missed an inside shot, Patrick Benzan of the Crusaders dribbled down the clock, curled off a high screen and missed a shot on a drive.

In overtime, Bucknell took a timeout at 42.4 seconds before Thomas was short on a 3-pointer. Holy Cross worked the ball around and called a timeout with 9.1 seconds left. Benzan dribbled it off his foot, regained it and spun inside the 3-point arc for a fade-away shot that hit hard off backboard at the buzzer.

Stephen Brown also scored 15 points for Bucknell (20-9, 14-2 Patriot League), which reached the 20-win mark for the 14th time in school history.

Floyd had 18 points and 11 rebounds for his first double-double of the season for Holy Cross (10-17, 7-9).
