Vermont 99, Maine 82
Points-wise, Vermont earned the biggest victory of the night with a 17 point triumph over the Black Bears. The Catamounts, much like Hartford, used a massive offensive outburst in the first half to create a cushion too large to overcome.
Vermont posted a remarkable 58 points in the first half, scoring at a clip of 1.42 points per possession. Cam Ward finished the first frame 5-for-7 from behind the arc on his way to 19 points.
Ward ended up leading five Catamounts in double figures with 24 points. Teammate Ethan O’Day added 21, while Kurt Steidl posted 14 of his own. Ernie Duncan and Trae Bell-Haynes added 11 points each, while Darren Payen and Dre Wills filled out the stat sheet with nine points apiece.
Maine was led by 26 points from Issac Vann while Aaron Calixte added 17 on 3-for-5 shooting from behind the arc. Shaun Lawton contributed nine points for the Black Bears while Devine Eke and Till Gloger posted eight points apiece.
