Junior forward Rachel Laws (Wyncote, Pa.) and freshman center Laine Kurpniece (Riga, Latvia) added 13 and 10 points, respectively. Laws chipped in seven rebounds and three steals and Kurpniece contributed eight boards and a pair of steals in the low post.

The teams combined for 35 fouls in the second half, when BU stretched a three-point lead to 14 with 6:44 to play (62-48). During that span, the Catamounts' leading scorer and conference No. 2 scorer, Lani Boardman, was whistled for four fouls and fouled out of the game with 10:19 remaining after scoring a season-low nine points. The Bearcats, however, missed 11 free throws in the final period (61%) and that kept the door open for UVM, which ended the game on a 16-7 run to tighten the gap.
