BURLINGTON, Vt. -- Trey Blue came off the bench for a career-high 19 points and Brian Voelkel pulled down 15 boards to lead Vermont in a 61-37 rout of America East Conference foe Binghamton on Wednesday night.
Voelkel also dished out seven assists and Clancy Rugg scored 16 points for Vermont (11-6, 4-1), winners of four of its last five.
Vermont shot an identical 11 of 27 in each half but made five 3-pointers in the opening stanza en route to a 34-22 lead at the break. The Catamounts led by 15 three different times in the second half and extended their lead to 20 on a Voelkel layup with 7:31 left to play.
Binghamton (2-16, 0-5), which made 10 of 20 first-half shots, scored just 15 points after intermission.
Leaving early for the NBA is a risky decision. Some players -- Skal Labissiere, Dejounte Murray -- slid in the draft. Some -- Isaiah Taylor, Troy Williams -- weren't drafted at all.
