The University at Albany Great Danes (8-14) fell to the University of Vermont Catamounts (10-

12) on Saturday, 52-36. The loss snapped a two-game winning streak for the UAlbany women.

The matchup between the two America East rivals marked the second of the season. In their first meeting, UAlbany got the better of UVM, beating them soundly, 58-49.


Redshirt senior, Amanda Kantzy led the Great Danes with 11 points and eight rebounds. Guard

Kyara Frames also chipped in with seven points, six rebounds and three assists.


The UVM Catamounts were led by Hanna Crymble who dropped 20 points and grabbed 13

rebounds. The double-double was her ninth of the season.


UAlbany played an inefficient game, turning the ball over 21 times, and shooting under 30%

from the field.


A tightly contested, back and forth first quarter rounded out with UAlbany topping UVM 13-7,

as Frames and Kantzy highlighted the Great Danes play.


The UAlbany lead would fizzle away in the second quarter, as the Catamounts opened the

floodgates. UVM outscored the Great Danes 16-2 starting at the eight-minute mark and would

go into halftime with a 23-19 lead.


UVM would again dominate the Great Danes, jumping out to a quick 30-19 lead, scoring seven unanswered points at the start of the second half.


To start the fourth quarter, the Catamounts led the Great Danes 37-27. UVM once again went on to score six unanswered points, extending their lead to 43-27. From the 4:55 mark until the end UAlbany answered every UVM bucket with their one of their own, but their late play was not enough to overcome the substantial UVM lead.


The Great Danes will look to rebound and get back to their winning ways on Wednesday, at

Binghamton.
