UVM men’s basketball squeaks past Yale

Catamount Country

Catamounts get win despite poor shooting performance

The Cats sure didn’t make it look pretty in Patrick Gym on Friday afternoon.

UVM took down Yale 61-53 despite shooting just over 36-percent and going 4-for-24 from three point range.

Luckily for Vermont, Yale’s performance wasn’t much better. The Bulldogs finished the contest 37.5-percent from the floor and 4-for-23 from beyond the arc.

UVM forward Ryan Davis led the way with 18 points and nine rebounds in the win, and Yale’s Azar Swain posted a game-high 22 points.

Vermont’s second-straight win at home lifted them to 3-1 this season, while Yale fell to 3-2 with the loss. Next up, the Cats head to Estero, Fla. for the Gulf Coast Showcase starting Monday, Nov. 22. UVM will begin the tournament against Oakland at 1:30 p.m.
