LEWISTON, N.Y. -- Antoine Mason tied his season high with 25 points to lead Niagara over Vermont 68-58 Sunday in a nonconference matchup.

Mason made 7 of 12 shots from the field and 9 of 10 from the foul line, and also had four assists and three steals. Juan'ya Green backed his effort with 17 points for the Purple Eagles (5-6).

Brian Voelkel led Vermont (6-4) with 14 points and 10 rebounds but also had seven turnovers before fouling out with 33 seconds left.

The Catamounts trailed 19-18 at halftime and tied it at 21-all on Candon Rusin's trey 30 seconds into the second half. But Mason hit a 3-pointer and scored eight during a 16-2 Niagara run that stretched the lead to 37-23.

Vermont responded with a 7-0 run to make it 37-30, but T.J. Cline then hit a 3-pointer for Niagara and Vermont never got closer than that seven-point deficit again.
