I don't buy the "old" argument but I do buy the experience part. Smith, both Duncans, Lamb and a couple other Vermont guys have been through the AE championships, NIT and NCAA wars and it showed. They played with an intensity our guys hadn't really seen yet.

At the beginning of the year, our young guys didn't realize how hard you have to play to win a D1 game.  Conference play is a step up in intensity that they learned the hard way on Saturday night and Vermont is a good teacher.

I'm not sure Vermont will take a step back next year. It seems like everyone says that about them every year and they don't. We'll take a step or two forward.

Perhaps, their intensity comes from not finishing the job by winning the AE  Basketball 🏀Championship Game.

They are about 30+ spots lower in rankings this year then last...but as long as they have Lamb and talent around him they will be fine. 

 

Mind you, I'm not saying they will go into total rebuild but they should further pull back from a team that was hovering around top 50 last year. This year they are top 100 but got their beating us, were 114.

I see UVM as a team on a mission. The UVM vs Stony Brook is a bell weather game.  Can the Catamonts go through a 16 conference schedule with the same intensity?
