The Wildcats (3-8) lost for the seventh straight time. They had two chances to recover in the final seconds after Colgate turnovers, but Alvin Abreu missed on a drive with 6 seconds left. Tyrece Gibbs grabbed the rebound, but missed a long 3-pointer at the buzzer.

Eric Gilchrese led New Hampshire with 14 points and Abreu had 13.
