The injury riddled Black Bears stayed within striking distance all night. But UVM shot 63% from the field and outscored a small Maine lineup 54-34.
Kurt Steidl led the Catamounts with 20 points, including career point #1000.
Along with Myers 30 points, Ryan Bernstein (12), Aaron Calixte (11) and Austin Howard (11) were in double figure scoring.
