    DURHAM, NH -- Tyrece Gibbs hit two key 3-pointers in the second half and New Hampshire held off Hartford 55-47 Wednesday night in America East play.

    Gibbs finished with 21 points to lead New Hampshire (5-7, 1-0) and Michael Turner led Hartford (5-10, 1-1) with 16 points.

    New Hampshire led 23-19 at the half, and scored the first eight points of the second half. It later increased the lead to 38-25 before Hartford closed within 40-38 as Von Rosenberg hit 8 points of his 15 points in a 13-2 run.

    But Gibbs hit a 3-pointer to give UNH breathing room, and then after Turner hit a trey, Gibbs hit another one to spark a 7-0 run for a 9-point lead with 2:57 to play.

    Hartford never got closer than six again.
