Vermont 50, UAlbany 43

ALBANY - Unfortunately, the University at Albany has picked a bad time to lose its first back-to-back games of the season.

The Great Danes (5-3, 16-6) had a lead late, but the Catamounts (6-2, 13-7) were too strong down the stretch, posting their eighth straight victory in the head-to-head series.

Clancy Rugg led the way for Vermont with 14 points, but only four players scored and all of them were in double figures.

Mike Black, UAlbany's leading scorer, had his third straight rough game, shooting 3-15, but he did finish with a team-high 13 points. The Great Danes shot just 29,6 percent (16-54) for the game and only scored 15 points in the first half. That number marks the lowest of any half since the program turned Division I in 1999-00.

UAlbany must turn things around and in a hurry, as first-place Stony Brook comes to town on Tuesday.
