Hot Shooting, Big Second Half Leads Men's Hoops Over UMBC PDF Print E-mail

BALTIMORE, Md. – Five Catamounts recorded double figures as the University of Vermont men’s basketball team came from behind to top UMBC on the road on Tuesday night, 77-65. Seniors Colin McIntosh (Milton, Mass.) and Mike Trimboli (Norwalk, Conn.) led the Cats with 15 each, as they have now won 12 of their last 13 and improve to 21-7 overall and 12-3 in America East play.

Vermont trailed by nine early in the second half, but outscored the Retrievers 47-28 after the break to earn the win. Juniors Marqus Blakely (Metuchen, N.J.) and Maurice Joseph (Montreal, Quebec) each added 13 apiece, while sophomore Joey Accaoui (Lincoln, R.I.) rounded out the Cats in double figures with 12 points on four three-pointers.

“That’s a good road win for us because UMBC has been playing well and we have always struggled with (Jay) Greene and (Darryl) Proctor,” said Vermont head coach Mike Lonergan. “I was disappointed with our first half, but we made shots in the second half and made three’s. Our defense really tightened up and we did a good job of staying between them and the basket. I am proud of our defense and we are happy to escape with a win.”

UMBC (12-14, 6-8 America East) scored the first bucket of the second half to push its lead to 39-30 just 14 seconds in on a jumper by Darryl Proctor. The Catamounts responded with an 11-0 run and would score 25 of the first 34 points of the half to go on top 55-46 after a jumper by McIntosh.
