The Catamounts put up a repeat performance to handle Maine on Sunday and take home their second series sweep in a row.
UVM senior guard Justin Mazzulla stepped up with Stef Smith out of the lineup and scored a career-high 23 points in Vermont’s 88-60 win over the Black Bears.
Vermont junior forward Ryan Davis posted another strong output with 17 points and five rebounds in the win.
“We’re starting to figure out the back-to-backs,” Vermont head coach John Becker said. “It feels really good right now. We’re moving into the meat of the schedule with Hartford and Stony Brook, and we’re in a good place.”
Next up, Vermont will go on the road to face Hartford in a series starting Saturday, Jan. 23 at 5 p.m. The two teams were set to play in the America East championship game before the season was cut short last March.
