It has not happened often in recent years, but Vermont teams of graduated seniors swept New Hampshire on Saturday in the Merchants Bank-Rotary Twin State Basketball Classic at the University of Vermont’s Roy L. Patrick Gymnasium.
Former Champlain Valley Union High School center Greg Gause scored seven points and led his team with six rebounds as the Vermont boys whipped their Granite State counterparts, 75-66.
It was the Vermont boys’ first victory since 2004. New Hampshire still owns an 18-10 advantage in the series.
Alison Wettstein and Katie Edgerton were key players in the Vermont girls’ 65-58 triumph, only their second victory in the last 11 meetings.
Wettstein chalked up eight points, and hit one of two tries from beyond the three-point arc.
Edgerton hit a single point and chalked up three of the smart-passing Vermont team’s 17 assists.
