Patella's UVM Catamounts Top Daley's UMass-Lowell River Hawks
LOWELL, Mass. -- Lenox's Bailey Patella hit a first-half 3-pointer Saturday to help the University of Vermont men's basketball team to a 74-65 win at UMass-Lowell.
Anthony Lamb led the Catamounts with 29 points, and UVM improved to 17-5 and 7-1 in the America East.
UMass-Lowell, coached by Dalton native Pat Duquette, got six points and four assists in 28 minutes from Pittsfield's Bryce Daley.
Daley hit a lay-up with 1 minute, 20 seconds left in regulation to make it a two-point UVM lead, 67-65, after UMass-Lowell had trailed by as many as 18 points in the second half.
But the Catamounts scored the game's last seven points to earn the win.
