BENNINGTON, Vt. — The Williams men's basketball team defeated the Southern Vermont Mountaineers (0-19), 93-45, Tuesday night.  With the win, the Ephs move to 18-2 on the year. The two teams faced off in their season openers this year, and the Ephs won that match-up 81-51.

Williams began to pull away just five minutes into the game when they went on an 16-4 run that spanned 10 minutes. Captain James Klemm started the run with a three off of a pass from Michael Mayer. On the next Eph possession, Mayer finished inside to push the lead to 13-7. Taylor Epley followed the layup with a long ball. Tavaris Jenkins broke up the run with a jumper to cut the lead to five.
 
The Ephs, however, wouldn't let up.  Epley hit another 3-pointer, and Mayer and Daniel Wohl each had a layup to push the lead to 12.  Wohl then went 1-for-2 from the charity stripe and Mayer had yet another finish inside. Taeshon Johnson scored for the Mountaineers to make it 26-13. The Ephs finished up the run with a three and pair of free throws from Epley and a layup from Luke Thoreson. The Ephs continued to push for the rest of the half and went into the locker room with the 45-24 lead.
 
Out of the break, the Ephs continued to add to their lead with a 3-pointer from Epley and a layup from Nate Robertson.
 
Despite aggressive play from Southern Vermont, the Mountaineers were unable to cut into the Ephs lead, and Williams defeated them for the second time this year.
 
Mayer posted a double-double for the Ephs with 22 points and 12 rebounds. He was 10-for-11 from the field.  Epley was the only other Eph in double digits with 16. Williams shot 52.3 percent from the field.
 
The Ephs will return to the court on Friday at Colby. Tip-off is scheduled for 6 p.m.
