Vermont wins 17th straight, American East title, over Albany

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) Payton Henson scored six of his 18 points in an 11-2 closing run and Vermont won its 17th straight game and captured the American East championship with a 62-50 win over Albany on Wednesday night.

Albany led by seven early in the first half when Ernie Duncan and Dre Lewis combined for all the points in a 9-2 run that tied the game at 41 with 12:20 to play. Henson scored four straight points to cap a 6-0 surge that put the Catamounts up by four with 8:31 remaining. The Great Danes were within 51-48 on a Joe Cremo 3-pointer with 6:23 left but from there they went 1 of 6 with four turnovers.

Henson started the closing run with a pair of free throws. Duncan hit a 3 that erased the Danes' one basket and then Henson had two layups to close out the Catamounts' sixth out American East title, the first in three seasons.
