An 18-2 second-half run by Vermont proved too much to overcome for UAlbany on Saturday night in Burlington, as the Great Danes fell to the Catamounts, 68-38, in an America East game.

The Great Danes (2-1 AE, 8-8 overall) dropped their first game in league play after winning five straight since last year’s America East Tournament.

The game was close for much of the first half. Vermont’s Luke Apfeld picked up his second foul just after nailing a three at the 15:01 mark. The Great Danes looked to take advantage, as Gary Johnson scored two straight baskets in Apfeld’s absence to give UAlbany a 10-8 lead.

UAlbany had foul trouble of its own, as Sam Rowley picked up his second foul at the 12:21 mark. Both teams went scoreless for two minutes before Johnson broke

UAlbany’s field goal drought after 5:30 at the 8:45 mark.

The teams traded three-pointers, with Peter Hooley hitting his first three of the game with eight minutes left in the first half to cut Vermont’s lead, 20-17.

Johnson led all scorers with nine points, depite the Great Danes not getting a basket for the final 4:30, as Vermont went on a 12-2 run going into the break to lead, 32-21, after 20 minutes.

The Catamounts controlled the second half from the outset, hitting a three just 20 seconds in. Before the first media timeout of the second half, UAlbany had committed three turnovers and went 1-for-4 from the field. Rowley also picked up his third foul going after an offensive rebound with 15:53 left.
