Vermont rolls to America East title and NCAA Tournament bid

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) Ryan Davis scored 20 points, Ben Shungu added 19 and Vermont completed a dominant America East season with its fourth conference tournament title in six years via an 82-43 win over UMBC on Saturday.

Davis, back-to-back American East player of the year, was 9-of-13 shooting and Shungu was 9 of 17 with the top-seeded Catamounts at 59%. Finn Sullivan, a University of San Diego transfer, added three 3-pointers and 14 points for the Catamounts (28-5), who crushed their tournament competition, winning by 29, 32 and 39 points.

"We can compete with any team in college basketball. I like any matchup we can get," said Shungu, a South Burlington native who competed in his eighth championship in Patrick Gym, counting high school state tournaments and college.
