STUDENT-ATHLETE SPOTLIGHT

Kelsey Hogan, women’s basketball

     Kelsey, a senior from Nashua, N.H., averaged 16 points in two games last week as the UNH women’s basketball team defeated Colgate University, 63-58, on Nov. 25 and lost 67-61 at Bryant.

     Kelsey led four Wildcats in double digits against Colgate with a game-high 15 points on the strength of 5-for-9 shooting from the floor; she was also credited with three rebounds, three assists and one steal against the Raiders. Kelsey followed that with a season-high 17 points at Bryant; she tied her career high of four 3-pointers in that game.

     Hogan’s 3-pointer broke a 50-50 tie with 3:41 remaining in the second half to give UNH a lead it would not relinquish to Colgate.

     Through six games, the guard and team captain is averaging 11.7 points per game to rank second on the team. Kelsey is also contributing 3.2 rebounds per game and 1.8 assists per game. She leads UNH in 3-pointers made (nine) and attempted (25) as well as free throws made (19).

      Kelsey played in 23 of 30 games last year as a junior, when she led the team in assists (73), ranked third in scoring (9.8 ppg), fourth in rebounding (3.9 rpg) and second in 3-pointers made (27). She ranked second in America East in free throw percentage (.827) and minutes per game (32.9). Kelsey’s season highlights included 20 points at UMBC, her first career double-double (12p, 11r) at Maine, and nine assists at Holy Cross. She hit the game-winning 3-pointer as time expired in the America East first quarterfinal vs. Stony Brook University, and that was voted the America East Play of the Year.

     After back-to-back redshirt seasons in 2009 and 2010, Kelsey was named to the America East All-Rookie Team in 2011, when she led the team and conference in both 3-point FG percentage (.413) and assists (118).

     In 91 career games, Kelsey has recorded 864 points, 122 3-pointers and 287 assists. With those numbers, she ranks No. 9 on the program’s 3-pointer list and tied for 11th in assists; Kelsey will move into the top 10 in scoring with 50 more points and into the top 10 in assists with 23 more helpers.

 

Jay Colbert, football

     Jay, a senior from Langhorne, Pa., spearheaded the UNH football team’s defensive effort with a career-high three sacks as the 15th-ranked Wildcats defeated Lafayette College, 45-7, in an NCAA first round playoff game Nov. 30 at Cowell Stadium.

     The defensive end finished with a total of five tackles, four of which were for a total loss of 26 yards. The three sacks, which doubled his season total, were for 22 yards.

     Jay set the tone of the game early by sacking Lafayette quarterback Drew Reed for a seven-yard loss on the first play from scrimmage. Jay’s second sack, this time for eight yards, forced the Leopards into a third-and-long that they did not convert. His third sack of the day on a 3rd-and-12 play in the third quarter once again forced the visitors to punt. Jay punctuated the third quarter by tackling Reed for a four-yard loss.

     In 12 games, Jay has tallied 36 tackles (23 solo, 13 assisted) with six sacks and a fumble recovery. He recorded a career-high seven tackles (two solo, five assisted) Nov. 16 at the University at Albany.

     Jay started all 12 games last year as a junior after missing the entire 2011 season due to injury. He finished with 26 tackles, including seven for a loss. In 26 career games – one game played in 2009 – Jay has 25 unassisted tackles and 14 assisted tackles for 39 total tackles.
