BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) The UVM men's and women's basketball teams swept a Sunday afternoon double header with St. Mike's at Patrick Gym. The women controlled from the beginning in the 76-49 victory, while the men used a 53-point second half to pull away for a 90-61 win.
Last year in this same game, members of the Knights' men's team kneeled during the National Anthem and got a mixed reaction from the Patrick Gym crowd. The team put out a statement on Facebook Saturday saying they would continue to protest injustice against African Americans and other marginalized groups like Jewish and Muslim people, the LGBTQ community and veterans. They say it is not a protest against the flag or the military, but rather they want to ensure that all are included when we speak of "Liberty & Justice for All!"
