M & M hoopsters

We met the parents of Vermont women's basketball star May Kotsopoulos this morning and had a nice conversation. The Catamounts men and women are staying in the same hotel as the Black Bears and UMaine fans.

Kotsopoulos is from the same hometown, Waterloo, Ontario, as UMaine men's freshman forward Murphy Burnatowski. They went to different high schools, but the Kotsopoulos's are familiar with Burnatowski and were interested in hearing how he is doing.

As the Vermont women's team came down to the lobby and got ready to board their bus over to the arena, Kotsopoulos's parents called their daughter over and introduced her to us.

The Black Bears men are expected to arrive in Hartford this afternoon after a morning practice in Orono. The America East postseason awards announcements will be made this afternoon.
