Colgate edges UNH, 65-63, on Roh’s layup

Luke Roh scored on a layup with two seconds remaining to give Colgate a 65-63 victory over the University of New Hampshire in a non-conference men’s basketball game yesterday.

Murphy Burnatowski scored a career-high 31 points, including 18 in the second half, for the Raiders (5-9), who have won two in a row after losing six straight.

Colgate led by as many as 10 points, 39-29, early in the second half, but the Wildcats (4-8) rallied to take a 63-61 lead with 2:10 remaining on a three-point play by Ferg Myrick, who finished with 23 points.

Mitch Rolls’s jumper tied the game at the 1:39 mark.

After failed possessions by each team, UNH’s Chandler Rhoads missed the front end of a 1-and-1. Roh, after missing a jumper, got his own rebound and scored the game-winner.

Rhoads had 13 points and nine assists and Chris Pelcher had 12 points and nine rebounds for the Wildcats.
