Thursday college basketball pits the Vermont Catamounts against the UMBC Retrievers.

The Vermont Catamounts continue to win with a 77-75 victory versus Hartford as an eight point road favorite on Saturday.

Vermont has won six in a row and are holding on to the top spot in the America East while holding off Stony Brook.

Anthony Lamb led the Catamounts with 25 points and six boards with Ernie Duncan adding 16 points and three yanks.

Stef Smith gave Vermont 12 points and five pulls followed by Robin Duncan with seven points and four assists while Everette Duncan and Ryan Davis chipped in with five points each.

The UMBC Retrievers come in off of a 70-66 victory at Massachusetts-Lowell on Saturday as a six point favorite.

UMBC has been one of the hottest teams in the America East with one loss in over a month with the team sitting third in the conference.

Arkel Lamar paced the Retrievers with 17 points and eight rebounds with KJ Jackson adding another 17 points and six boards.

UMBC saw 12 points and four pulls from Nolan Gerrity followed by a combined 17 points and eleven rebounds from Ricky Council II and Brandon Horvath.

Vermont Catamounts are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall and Vermont Catamounts are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. America East.

UMBC Retrievers are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record and UMBC Retrievers are 15-6 ATS in their last 21 games following a straight up win.

Vermont is the better team and most people expect them to win every game. I expect them to win but UMBC will show up...

Pick:
UMBC +6.5

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
