The last time the Hartford Hawks made the trip to Burlington, they ended Vermont's season.

Is a measure of revenge in order on Saturday night?

The University of Vermont men's basketball team plays host to Hartford, the reigning America East tournament champion, in a rematch of last year's conference semifinals. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. at Patrick Gym.

The Catamounts (12-4, 4-0) enter on a six-game winning streak, and have won their four league games by an average of 22.5 points a game. UVM is also averaging 87.5 points a game in conference play.

Finn Sullivan has led UVM's hot shooting, going 16 of 23 from distance in the past three games. As a team, the Cats have made 57.6% of their field-goal attempts (129 of 224) in the four league contests.

"I think it’s the best stretch we’ve had since I’ve been here," 11th-year Catamount coach John Becker said Friday. "They do it in practice, they do it in games. But we hang our hat on defense and rebounding and toughness and we can’t get too far away from that because we are going to need that if and when the offense comes back to earth."

The Hawks (3-10, 1-0) beat New Hampshire earlier this week, their first game back in a month after dealing with COVID-19 protocols. Austin Williams (15.3 ppg), Moses Flowers (13.0 ppg) and Hunter Marks (12.5 ppg) pace Hartford.
