New Hampshire 63, Colgate 55

Alvin Abreu had 24 points and eight rebounds as New Hampshire

defeated Colgate 63-55 on Wednesday night.

Abreu made 7 of 13 field goals, 10 of 12 free throws and was one

of three Wildcats (5-5) to grab at least eight rebounds. New

Hampshire outrebounded Colgate 44-27.

Ben Jonson led Colgate (1-10) with 14 points and Kyle Roemer had

13. The Raiders were trying to win back to back games for the first

time this season after opening the campaign on a nine-game losing

skid. They are off to the worst start since the 1988-1989

season.

Nick Pascale’s three-point play with 14:06 left in the first

half started a 9-0 Colgate run that gave the Raiders a three-point

lead. Colgate went up 12-11 before the Wildcats put together a 17-6

run to finish the half 27-18. New Hampshire stayed in front the

rest of the way.
