Balanced attack leads Vermont over Hartford 81-62
BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — Anthony Lamb had 21 points and 12 rebounds and led five Vermont players in double-figure scoring as the Catamounts cruised to an 81-62 victory over Hartford on Saturday night for its fourth straight win.
Vermont (13-4, 3-0 America East Conference) avenged last season’s 69-68 loss at home to Hartford (8-9, 1-1) that snapped its nine-game win streak against the Hawks dating to Jan. 29, 2014.
Vermont had a double-digit lead with about four minutes left in the first half and built a 36-23 halftime advantage. Ernie Duncan hit a corner 3-pointer to cap an 8-0 surge at the start of the second half and the Catamounts cruised from there.
