Lamb, Vermont deny UMBC repeat, win America East title game
BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) Vermont learned from its loss last year on its home floor to Maryland-Baltimore County in the America East Tournament title game - a result that paved the way for an even bigger win by UMBC.
Anthony Lamb scored 28 points, and Vermont beat UMBC 66-49 on Saturday to win the America East championship and earn an NCAA Tournament bid.
It was the seventh conference title overall and second in three years for the Catamounts (27-6), who got their revenge on the anniversary of 16th-seeded UMBC's shocking upset of top-seeded Virginia in last year's NCAA Tournament.MORE
