New Hampshire uses late run to get past Colgate 63-57

DURHAM, N.H. (AP) Tanner Leissner had a career-high 21 points and New Hampshire scored 10 straight in the final three minutes to pull ahead of Colgate for a 63-57 win on Sunday.

Joe Bramanti’s layup with 1:07 left gave the Wildcats (6-3) the lead for good at 57-55. Leissner extended it with a runner off the glass on the next possession and Jaleen Smith’s free throws made it 61-55 with 21 seconds left.

Smith and Matt Miller added 11 points for New Hampshire and Leissner’s eight rebounds also tied a career best for the freshman.

Colgate (3-8) took a 55-51 lead with a 7-0 run capped by Damon Sherman-Newsome’s layup with 3:20 to play. But the Raiders missed four consecutive field goals, allowing the Wildcats to pull in front and Austin Tillotson’s layup with 12 seconds left only cut the deficit back to four.

Tillotson and Sherman-Newsome scored 15 apiece.
