Vermont held the Black Bears to 26.1% shooting and 6.7% from beyond the arc. Maine took the first lead of the game 6-0 over UVM but the Catamounts then went on a seven point run and took a 7-6 lead.
The Catamounts took an impressive 31-12 lead over the Black Bears into halftime. In the second half, Vermont outscored Maine 34-18.
Head coach John Becker noted that the Catamounts could enjoy the win for a few minutes and then need to get back to work for tomorrow’s game.
“It took us a little while to get going but we were able to figure it out. Maine is a good defensive team but now the biggest challenge is coming back tomorrow and playing with the same edge” said Becker.
The Cats host Maine to close out the weekend series on Sunday at 1 p.m. at Patrick Gym.
