New Hampshire guard Daniel Dion had connected on only one field goal as the Wildcats set up for a potential game-winning play with only 2.2 seconds remaining against UMass Lowell.

The 6-foot junior guard had no hesitation as he took a sideline inbounds play and immediately launched a 3-pointer. Dion connected at the buzzer, as New Hampshire knocked off the River Hawks, 78-76, on Thursday night.

Dion finished with seven points, off 2-of-7 shooting, for the Wildcats. 

The road win puts New Hampshire two games behind Stony Brook in the American East standings.
