New Hampshire Men's Hoop edges BU, 62-59

DURHAM, N.H. - Freshman Marcus Bullock (Cherry Hill, N.J.) hit a three with 2.3 seconds left to give the University of New Hampshire men's basketball team a 62-59 win over Boston University Tuesday at Lundholm Gymnasium.

The win for UNH breaks a 10-game losing streak to the Terriers.

Trailing, 59-56, BU's Stijin Dhondt turned a layup into a three-point play when he was fouled by junior Austin Ganly with 32 seconds to go. Dhondt connected on his free throw to tie the game, setting up Bullock for his game-winning three 30 seconds later.

UNH (3-8, 2-2 America East) had five players in double figures, including Bullock who had 12 on 4-for-6 shooting from beyond the arc. Ganly and freshman Allen Gould (Grand Rapids, Mich.) each had 12 and seniors Chris Brown (Boston, Mass.) and Colin Donahue (Des Moines, Iowa) had 10 apiece.

Donahue also pulled down a career-high 11 rebounds to go along with a team-high 5 assists. The Wildcats shot 52.4% from three-point range on 11-for-21 shooting. Dhondt had a game-high 20 points for the Terriers (6-5, 2-1 AE).

In the first half, the Wildcats pulled out to a 16-2 lead, but the Terriers responded with a 21-4 run to take the lead at the 4:04 mark. Thanks to a pair of three's by Bullock and Donahue just before halftime, UNH was only down 31-28 at the break.

The Wildcats return to action at home against Lehigh on Saturday. Tip-off is at 1 p.m.
