Reinstatement of UVM Baseball and Softball

On February, 20, 2009, in response to the need for budget cuts, the University of Vermont athletic department chose to eliminate the varsity baseball and softball programs after the 2008-2009 academic year.

VESTAL, N.Y. — The University of Vermont men’s basketball team had its America East Conference opener spoiled with a 91-83 overtime defeat to Binghamton on Thursday night.

D.J. Rivera — a transfer from St. Joseph’s and the league’s leading scorer — piled up 29 points to help Binghamton defeat the Catamounts for the first time since January of 2006. Winners of six straight, the Bearcats improved to 10-4 and sit atop the America East standings at 3-0.

Vermont droped to 9-5 after losing in overtime for the third time this season.

“We’ve been fortunate to win a lot of games against Binghamton lately and escape with a lot of close wins, and tonight we couldn’t do that,” UVM coach Mike Lonergan said. “We got down too much. We shot the ball very, very poorly from 3-point range and were really weak the ball.
