Vermont 71, Binghamton 61

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) -- Mike Trimboli scored a career-high 27 points to help Vermont secure at least a share of the America East regular-season championship with a 71-61 victory over Binghamton on Sunday.

Vermont, which earned the top seed in the conference tournament, has won nine straight and 16 of its last 17 to improve to 21-6 overall and 13-1 in America East.

Chris Holm added 16 points and 11 rebounds for the Catamounts, who can win the title outright with one victory in their last two regular-season games or an Albany loss.

Lazar Trifunovic had 16 points and 14 rebounds for Binghamton (11-15, 4-10).
