Vermont 64, Black Bears 56

UMaine took a run at handing Vermont an early conference loss, but in the end, poor shooting did in the Black Bears.

The Catamounts, led by the all-around play of two-time America East player of the year Marqus Blakely (check out this line: 11 points, 13 rebounds, 6 assists, 4 steals, 2 blocked shots), deflected the host Black Bears' bid and moved to 2-0 in the league, 11-5 overall. UMaine falls to 0-1, 8-6.

The Black Bears shot just 30 percent on its home floor while Vermont hit 39 percent and outrebounded UMaine by a 36-24 count.

Terrance Mitchell (13 points) and Gerald McLemore (12) paced UMaine's scoring attack.
