UMBC has been hot going 8-2 in their last 10 contests, while also winning four straight. Their most recent outing was a take down of Hartford 75-60 as they are one win away from making the NCAA Tourney.
Offensively they own an efficiency rating of 217th, while the defense has been a tad better with a rating of 183rd. What you don’t like to see is an out of conference strength of schedule that ranks 278th.
UMBC is shooting 49% from their field in their last three contests, while also only giving up 63 PPG in that span.
This is their chance for redemption against a Vermont team thats taken them down twice already this season. UMBC has gotten hot at the right time, they need to review the tape and plan accordingly for round three.
It seems like every year Vermont is in the America East championship matchup. They have strolled into this championship game winning 20 of their last 21 matchups, while blowing out UMBC twice.
They sport the best offense in the American East ranking 40th in efficiency, while the defense isn’t too shabby ranking 125th in efficiency. You also like to see the 49th ranked out of conference schedule.
Vermont is converting 46% of their shots from the field, while their defense has been stout only giving up 57.4 PPG in that span.
Once again Vermont is the cream of the crop and are double-digit favorites for a reason. There isn’t too much debate on who the better team is, but anything can happen in March.

It is hard to go against Vermont, but I trust UMBC to have learned from their mistakes going into this third matchup. Vermont is only shooting 42.6% from the field in their last three contests. I expect UMBC to keep it within single digits in a competitive slow-tempo performance.
