America East Championship 2012, Vermont Vs. Stony Brook Score Update: Catamounts Lead 26-19 At Half

The Vermont Catamounts used a stifling defensive effort to take a 26-19 halftime lead at Stony Brook Saturday morning during the 2012 America East championship game.

Vermont held Stony Brook to just four points over the first eight minutes of the half while building an 11-4 advantage. Bryan Dougher hit a three with 12:02 remaining in the stanza to snap Stony Brook's drought, but Vermont's defensive intensity did not cease.
