College Sports Roundup: Myrick's double-double lifts UNH men over Dartmouth

Ferg Myrick posted his first career double-double Tuesday to help the University of New Hampshire men's basketball team pull away from Dartmouth College, 72-58, at Leede Arena in Hanover.

The Wildcats (2-0) led by as many as nine points in the first half before the Big Green (1-1) took their one and only lead of the game, 26-25, on a 3-pointer by Kevin Crescenzi with 1:17 left in the first half. Myrick answered with a layup to put UNH back ahead for good.

The senior forward finished with 19 points and 11 rebounds. Chandler Rhoads and Patrick Konan each finished with 14. Alex Mitola led Dartmouth with 17.

The win was the fifth straight for UNH over Dartmouth, which still holds a 31-30 advantage in the all-time series.
