Alison Dixon's 10th career double-double goes for naught

BURLINGTON, VT (Feb. 19, 2000) -- Junior forward Alison Dixon recorded her 10th career double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds, but all Vermont's starting five scored in double-figures to lead the Catamounts to a 96-65 America East win before 1,575 at the Patrick Gymnasium in Burlington, VT on Feb. 19.

The Catamounts (20-4, 13-2) had control of the game right from the tip-off, jumping out to a 10-0 lead, behind five points from sophomore Libby Smith. The Terriers cut the lead to five (16-11) on a jumper by Anne Nelson with 13:36 left in the first half. However, the Catamounts responded with an 11-2 run to push the lead to 14 (27-13). Vermont extended its lead to 30 in the second half.

Vermont led 49-27 at halftime behind 47.5 percent (19-of-40) shooting from the field.

Joining Dixon in double-figures for the Terriers were sophomores Dia Dufault (12 points), and Anne Nelson and Pilar Verde with 10 points each.

The Terriers shot 45.6 percent (26-of-57) for the game and converted 12-of-15 free throw attempts (80 percent).

First-year head coach Margaret McKeon and her Terriers will conclude the home portion of their 1999-2000 schedule with games versus Maine on Thursday, February 24th at 7 p.m., and with New Hampshire on Saturday, February 26th at 1p.m.
