Vermont 72, Dartmouth 63

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) -- Joe Trapani scored 19 points and Mike Trimboli added 14 points and eight assists to lead Vermont to a 72-63 victory over Dartmouth on Thursday.

Dartmouth's DeVon Mosley scored a career-high 21 points, 18 of them in the first 20 minutes, but it wasn't enough for the win.

Vermont (6-5) led at the half, 35-34, and the game remained close with Dartmouth (3-7) taking a three-point lead, 41-38, on a Mosley layup with 18:22 to go.

But Vermont chipped away with an 11-0 run. Trapani scored on a layin with 15:27 remaining to make it 49-41 and Dartmouth couldn't threaten the rest of the way.
