Green Mountain Markwood?

Rumors are floating around that assistant coach Chris Markwood is leaving UMaine and will join the Vermont coaching staff.

The Catamounts recently named John Becker to replace Mike Lonergan, who was hired by the A-10's George Washington.

Markwood, as a few ardent Black Bears fans recall, is best known for his last-second shot that defeated Boston University in the quarterfinals of the 2005 America East tournament. UMaine has not won a tournament game since that long-ago night in Vestal, N.Y.
