Around the League: 12.29.08

Monday's games:

Colorado State 82, Vermont 76
UVM forward Marqus Blakely was held under double digits in points and rebounds for just the third time all season as Colin McIntosh (22 points) and Nick Vier (18 points) led the Catamounts in scoring. Five players from Colorado State reached double digits in scoring, led by Marcus Walker, who had 26. Vermont (7-4) had its three-game winning streak snapped at the hands of the Rams, who will play in Tuesday's championship game of the Outrigger Hotels Rainbow Classic in Hawaii. The loss is somewhat of a letdown for the Catamounts, who were playing very good basketball coming into the semifinal matchup. The Rams opened up a 42-36 lead at the half and used a 13-6 run at the start of the second half to create some distance. UVM will play in the third-place game Tuesday against Coppin State, which lost to Pepperdine, 58-56. And in case you missed it, here's the official UVM blog of their cross-country trip: click here.
