America East’s Vermont Nearly Upsets Duke In Amazing College Basketball Game

Duke came into Sunday’s game against Vermont, a rival of UAlbany in the America East Conference, a 26.5 point favorite. They nearly lost outright to the Catamounts, in what will be remembered as one of the games of the year in college basketball.

Jabari Parker went off in typical Jabari Parker fashion, scoring 26 points on 11 of 16 shooting, but it was the shooting over Vermont that had college basketball fans pulsating in this game. The Catamounts shot 64.8 percent from the field, including a combined 16-23 from Clancy Rugg and Sandro Carissimo, who will give America East teams nightmares all season long.

Even more surprising than Vermont’s hot shooting, though, was their poise which was reflected in the turnover column. They only turned the ball over six times, one fewer than Duke’s seven.

With the day’s NFL games taking a break before Sunday night football, this was one of the only nationally televised sporting events on at the time, a stage a game of this caliber was truly deserving of. If the Catamounts can make it to the NCAA Tournament, expect them to give plenty of other teams similar headaches.
