Vermont tops UMBC to win America East

EditorsNote: will add other conference champ games

Anthony Lamb scored 28 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead Vermont over UMBC 66-49 on Saturday in the America East championship game in Burlington, Vt. It was a rematch of the 2018 conference title game, which UMBC won to earn its way to the NCAA Tournament, where the Retrievers beat Virginia for the first-ever win for a No. 16 seed over a No. 1 seed.

Stef Smith added 17 points for Vermont (27-6). K.J. Jackson, with 15 points, was the only player to score in double figures for UMBC (21-13).
