Hoop Cats bounce back


The three-game losing streak is history. Now the University of Vermont men’s basketball team can look forward to Tuesday’s game with Maine.

Pending the outcome of tonight’s Boston University-Stony Brook game, the Catamounts (6-3) are still in good position to make a push for the regular-season America East title, though the challenge might be beyond their ability if their guard play doesn’t improve.

Meanwhile, Saturday, the Catamounts surged past a young Albany team through the combination of experience, defense and Evan Fjeld to start the second half.

Down by five at the half, Vermont outscored the Great Danes 25-3 in the next 10 minutes. Offensively, Fjeld supplied the ignition point with his rebounding, scoring and defense, though Maurice Joseph’s 3 to open the onslaught seemed to inject confidence and energy into the Catamounts.

Even with Marqus Blakely hampered by foul trouble, Vermont simply was too much for Albany to handle, especially with a harassing Catamount defense taking command.

On this afternoon at Patrick Gym, the Catamounts displayed the grit and desire they’ll need against Maine on Wednesday.

It’s a wide-open race in America East with no team having fewer than two league losses at this point. The title’s there for the Catamounts to grab — if they can.
