Vermont through rose-colored glasses

The Catamounts women’s basketball team continued their hot streak at home with a win over conference foe Stony Brook. Sporting bright pink uniforms in support of the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association’s Breast Cancer Awareness Week, the Catamounts started the second half of their conference schedule strong, winning 71-51. Junior Amy Rosenkrantz led the Cats, who had dropped two straight league contests, with 22 points, six rebounds, four assists and four steals. Sophomore Courtnay Pilypaitis and junior Kelli Poles added double doubles for a Vermont team that has gone 10-1 at home and 4-0 in conference. Pilypaitis finished with 14 points and 10 assists. She was named Co-America East Player of the Week last week, her second straight week receiving that honor and the third time this season. Poles had 12 points and 11 rebounds. Vermont improved to 15-0 this season when they hold opponents under 65 points and 7-1 when they score over 70. The Catamounts now stand at 15-7 overall and 6-3 in America East play.
