Muscala, Bucknell beat George Mason 61-56

LEWISBURG, Pa. (AP) Mike Muscala finished with 16 points and 15 rebounds, and hit two late free throws to help Bucknell beat George Mason 61-56 Tuesday night.

Trailing 59-54 with 1:20 left, Bryon Allen's steal and layup cut Bucknell's lead to three. That was the closest George Mason (1-1) would get.

After Patrick Holloway's missed 3-point shot with 10 seconds to go, Muscala grabbed the rebound and was fouled. He hit both free throws to put Bucknell (2-0) up by five and seal the victory.

Muscala's two late free throws broke Bill Courtney's previous school record of 400 career makes, and now gives him 402 for his career. Joe Willman added 10 points for Bucknell (2-0).

Muscala scored the first two baskets of the game helping Bucknell start on a 10-2 run. Bucknell led at halftime 31-27.

Bryson Johnson also scored 16 points for Bucknell.

Redskins to play on Thanksgiving for third consecutive season

The Washington Redskins are playing on Thanksgiving ... again.

With the 2018 NFL regular-season schedule set for an official release on Thursday night, news has begun to leak on the different dates.

The Redskins will travel to Dallas yet again to take on the Cowboys on Thanksgiving, NBC Sports Washington's JP Finlay reports on Thursday afternoon.

The Week 12 showdown will take place on Thursday, Nov. 22 at AT&T Stadium in Dallas. 

Last season, the Redskins beat the Giants at home 20-10 to increase their all-time Thanksgiving Day record to a whopping 3-7. That game marked the first time since the 1973 and 1974 seasons that the Redskins' played on Thanksgiving back-to-back years.

The 2018 season marks unchartered territory for the Redskins.

Against non-Cowboys opponents, the Redskins are actually undefeated on Turkey Day. But this showdown will be against their dreaded division rivals who hosted them two seasons ago on Thanksgiving.

The Cowboys won that matchup 31-26 with two rushing TDs from Ezekiel Elliot while Jordan Reed caught two TD passes from Kirk Cousins.

The Redskins and Cowboys will meet under the bright lights of AT&T Stadium on November 22. Game time to be determined.

Orioles pitching falls apart as Tigers complete sweep in Detroit

DETROIT - Leonys Martin hit his first big league grand slam, Jeimer Candelario had four hits and three RBIs, and the Detroit Tigers beat Baltimore 13-8 Thursday to extend the Orioles' losing streak to six.

Jordan Zimmermann (1-0) gave up four runs and seven hits in 5 1/3 innings, allowing two home runs to Manny Machado and one to Chris Davis. Zimmermann was pitching for the first time since being hit in the jaw by a line drove off the bat of Cleveland's Jason Kipnis on April 11.

Alex Cobb (0-2) made his second start after signing a $57 million, four-year contract in spring training and his ERA rose to 15.43. He allowed seven runs - five earned - and 10 hits in 3 1/3 innings.

Machado had four RBIs for the Orioles, who were outhit 18-14 in the game and outscored 23-15 in the three-game sweep.

Victor Martinez hit an RBI single in the first, but Davis put Baltimore ahead with a two-run homer in the second, his sixth hit and fourth homer in 10 career at-bats against Zimmermann.

Detroit went ahead for good with four runs in the bottom half after third baseman Tim Beckham's throwing error allowed James McCann to reach base leading off. Jose Iglesias hit a two-run triple, Miguel Cabrera had an RBI single and Nick Castellanos a run-scoring groundout.

Machado's homer in the third cut Baltimore's deficit to 5-2, but Candelario's two-run homer extended the lead to 7-2 in the bottom half. Martin homered off Mike Wright Jr. in a five-run fifth.
