Vermont wins 69-53. Five players scored in double-digits for the Catamounts while Stony Brook only had one.

After Stony Brook scored the first two points of the game, Vermont went on a 14-0 run and hasn't looked back since.

The script was flipped since the last game between the two, as Stony Brook went ice cold from the field at 18-of-53. Vermont shot 24-of-44, including a 6-of-15 mark from three.

With the win, Vermont locks up the No. 1 seed for the America East Tournament and Stony Brook cements themself in the two spot. 

If Vermont shoots like this today and wins the conference championship, it has a real chance to pull off a shocking upset in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
