Vermont gets to go dancing again. UVM overcame a game Boston University team for an 83-70 victory. Marqus Blakely had 24 points and 18 rebounds and definitely led the game in smiles. UVM never was behind in the game, leading by as many as 12 points, but BU went on a 15-4 run to bring the score to 54-53 UVM with 10:20 left. Then UVM went on a run too, to make it 60-53 with 5:48 to go. That number of points wasn't impressive, but not letting BU score in almost 5 minutes made the difference. BU never got closer than 4 points after that. Vermont made most of its free throws in the last minutes and completed the win. Ah, it's feels good!
Marqus Blakely at work. He had a monster in-yer-face jam in the second half that set the place on fire! (Burlington Free Press)
It was a joy to watch Blakely--it seemed he was always smiling--of course the numbers on the score board helped... (Burlington Free Press)
Evan Fjeld contributed 9 points and 6 rebounds, playing just four days after his mother died of cancer. He gave critical minutes in the second half playing well with four fouls to break BU's run. (Burlington Free Press)
