Rice Edges Burlington on the Road

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) In what has become the preeminent rivalry game in boys high school hoops, Rice saw an 18-point first quarter lead slip away, only to come back and beat Burlington on the road, 69-62.

Both Rice and BHS are attempting to bounce back after somewhat down seasons last year. 2017 was the first time since 2005 that neither the Green Knights nor Seahorses advanced to the D-I State Championship Game. The two schools have met each other in the final six times since 2007.
