NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Following consecutive road losses, the Bulldogs look to regain their form at home, where they picked up a win in their season opener. Yale plays Vermont on Sunday in the first matchup between these two programs since 2003.
Despite the recent losses, Yale takes away plenty of positives from its play early in the season. Lena Munzer has stepped up in her senior season, leading the team with 15.7 points and 2.3 assists per game.
Junior Jen Berkowitz and freshman Megan Gorman have led the Bulldogs on the boards, averaging 7.7 and 7.3 rebounds per game, respectively. Berkowitz also ranks 2nd on the team with 10 points per game.
Vermont finished 8th of 9 teams in the America East Conference at 9-21 (4-12 in conference play) last season.
Vermont welcomes a new coaching staff this season. Head coach Chris Day is joined by associate head coach Alisa Kresge and assistant coaches Brian Donoghue and Caroline Coyer. Chris Day has experience coaching against the Bulldogs, as he was an assistant coach at Penn from 2013 until earlier this year.
Vermont has three freshmen on its roster, including Hanna Crymble, who has started every game for the Catamounts so far and ranks in the top 3 on the team in scoring (3rd), rebounding (1st) and assists (2nd). Sophomore Candice Wright leads the team in scoring with 12.7 points per game, including 19 points in her most recent game.
The Catamounts are 1-2 this season and are entering the 2nd game of a Connecticut road trip. They lost to Central Connecticut 78-76 in overtime on Friday in the first game of the trip.
Yale goes on the road next for a clash with Illinois State, Tuesday at 8 p.m.
