Cats move into first place in America East play with 75-47 blowout win over the Terriers PDF Print E-mail

Following a shaky start in a highly anticipated home contest, the UVM men's basketball team outscored the Boston University Terriers 39-15 in the second half to earn a 75-47 win, ending BU's eight-game winning streak.

With the win, the Cats earn a season sweep of the Terriers and, most importantly, move back into first place in America East play with BU now third behind Binghamton.

The Terriers came out firing on all cylinders in the first half, at one point leading the Cats by a 17-7 margin, but junior co-captain Maurice Joseph lived up to his preseason hype by scoring nine of his 13 points in a three minute span - all on three pointers -t o help cut the BU lead to 17-14.

"Mojo did a great job of keeping us in the game early when we were struggling for whatever reason," head coach Mike Lonergan said.

Following his shooting outburst, Joseph notched his first of two steals, which was quickly followed by a layup and a subsequent free throw senior forward Colin McIntosh (13 points, 6 rebounds, 3 steals, 1 block).

Less than a minute later, senior co-captain Mike Trimboli gave the Cats their first lead of the game at 20-19 with an easy layup.

As Catamount fans have come to expect, Trimboli was the catalyst for the team on the night, with 17 points - 10 of which came in the second half - seven assists and two steals.
