    BURLINGTON Luke Apfeld scored 16 points and Vermont jumped on New Hampshire early en route to a 63-48 win over the Wildcats Wednesday night in an America East game.

    The Catamounts (15-7, 8-2), last years A-East champions, stormed to a 34-16 halftime lead over New Hampshire (7-15, 2-7) and coasted home. This was much easier than Vermonts 64-51 win at New Hampshire on Jan. 2.

    Apfeld, whose 16 points included two 3-pointers, helped the Catamounts build a 27-8 lead. He got help from Clancy Rugg, who also hit two treys, and Ethan ODay. They scored 13 and 10 points, respectively. Bryan Voelkel grabbed 14 rebounds.

    The Wildcats hurt themselves from 3-point range. They made just 3 of 14 treys, all three from Scott Morris in five attempts. Vermont was 7 of 22 from long range.

    Patrick Konan led New Hampshire with 15 points, shooting 7 for 15 from the field.
