Hartford ends Vermont's nation-best 15-game win streak 69-68
BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) Jason Dunne made five 3-pointers and scored 26 points and Hartford ended Vermont's nation-best 15-game winning streak with a 69-68 victory on Sunday.
Hartford's Hassan Attia dunked with 1:41 left for the game's final points. Vermont (22-6, 12-1 America East) missed a 3-pointer with 1:20 to go and then had two shots blocked at the rim in the final seconds by John Carroll and Attia.
The loss ended the Catamounts' 33-game win streak in conference games and their 22-game home streak. Vermont was the nation's last team that was unbeaten in conference play. Hartford (16-11, 9-4) had lost nine straight to Vermont.
Vermont led 64-56 with 6 1/2 minutes before Hartford outscored the Catamounts 13-4 the rest of the way with a Dunne 3-pointer getting the Hawks within a point before Attia's dunk.
George Blagojevic added 13 points for Hartford.
Drew Urquhart had 15 points, 10 rebounds and five assists for Vermont.
