Vermont Tech men upset #2 seed in USCAA Tournament

UNIONTOWN, Pennsylvania (YSCC) -- The #10 seeded Vermont Tech Knights are moving on to the USCAA Men's Semifinals with a 70 - 66 win over # 2 seeded Villa Maria Vikings.

The Knights were up two with 18 seconds to go. Villa Maria set up their play, moved the ball to the far side and tried to go inside when the Knights' Tyrone Hilson stole the ball and was immediately fouled with 5 seconds to go to.

Hilson drained the two free throws to seal the win for the Knights. Hilson finished the game with 14 points and 14 rebounds. Jeremiah Shaw had a game-high 20 points for the Knights, including a perfect 10-10 from the free throw line.

Vermont Tech will move on to play Penn State Wilkes Barre at 5 pm Tuesday evening. You can watch the LIVE STREAM of the game right here on
