Oakland @ Vermont
Current Records: Oakland 2-2; Vermont 3-1
What to Know
The Vermont Catamounts will take on the Oakland Golden Grizzlies at 1:30 p.m. ET on Monday at Hertz Arena. Vermont should still be riding high after a victory, while Oakland will be looking to get back in the win column.
The Catamounts were able to grind out a solid win over the Yale Bulldogs on Friday, winning 61-53.
Meanwhile, Oakland was expected to have a tough go of it on Friday, and that’s exactly how things played out. Their bruising 86-59 loss to the Alabama Crimson Tide might stick with them for a while. One thing holding Oakland back was the mediocre play of forward Trey Townsend, who did not have his best game: he played for 37 minutes but put up just eight points on 2-for-11 shooting.
Vermont’s win brought them up to 3-1 while the Golden Grizzlies’ defeat pulled them down to 2-2. A couple stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Catamounts rank 33rd in college basketball when it comes to points allowed per game, with only 56.5 on average. Less enviably, Oakland is stumbling into the matchup with the 37th fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 62 on average.
