Scouting the Tournament: Brian Voelkel

Vermont’s scrappy sophomore will lead his team in the first of two play-in games tonight.

Scouting the Tournament: Brian Voelkel

In this article…

Tonight, the Vermont Catamounts take on the Lamar Cardinals in the first of two play-in games in Dayton, Ohio.  One of the reasons Vermont took down top seed Stony Brook in the America East tournament was their sophomore forward Brian Voelkel.  He is the definition of a scrapper, a guy that fights for every rebound within reach and dives for every loose ball.  He wants to outwork you, but what makes that big motor of his run?

Brian Voelkel of Vermont is a player who can win a game with his ability to be the strongest and smartest rebounder on the floor like he did in leading the Catamounts to their 5th NCAA appearance in the last 10 years.

If you like watching help defense and an effort player who is most always the strongest player on the floor, be sure to watch Vermont in the tournament.

Only a sophomore, Voelkel has a long way to go offensively (only averages 34% from the field), but he could find himself a professional niche if he continues to play the angles and outwork opposing big men on the boards, despite being only 6’6".
