BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) Sandro Carissimo and Candon Rusin each scored 17 points and fueled a big second half that saw Vermont wallop Hartford, 72-47 Sunday afternoon.

Tied at halftime, Hartford took a brief lead early in the second half at 29-26, but the Catamounts responded with a 22-6 run that took over the game for good.

Vermont (19-9, 13-1 America East) maintains its one-game lead over Stony Brook with two games left to play and plays host to the Seawolves Thursday.
