I REALLY want to see Vermont get the homecourt advantage for the AE Championship. It's time to end the Boston stranglehold.....especially with all of the rumors of the impending departure of BU and/or NU from the league. The raucous crowd at Patrick Gym would also make for great television.....it would be an insane atmosphere!
I was at the game.
Vermont just played a little better. Their whole team is Coppenrath. Coppenrath is awesome to watch for sure. He keep the ball behind his head a lot and is somehow able to release it right from their, constantly catching the defender off balance. It is funny because he posts up hard, gets the ball and it seems like it takes forevers, but he gets the defender off balance and finesses it in every time. He's definitely legit.
Vermonts team was solid, BU didn't have a great post game but their guards were solid. Chaz Carr had 18. Coppenrath had 28. It was good to see Sorrentine playing conservative instead of going 2 for 17 he was only 3 for 9.
Vermont will go as far as Coppenrath can take them. He could possibly take them to the dance again. Nice all around performances from Germaine Njeela and Scotty Jones as well.
