College Sports Roundup: Dartmouth men, UNH women cagers lose

Dartmouth freshman Connor Boehm poured in 24 points and grabbed nine rebounds, but host Bryant didn't miss much of anything in the second half and defeated the Big Green, 79-66, in men's basketball action in Smithfield, R.I., Saturday.

The Bulldogs (6-4) hit 17-of-23 (.739) of their field goals and 19-of-20 (.950) free throws after halftime to break open a game that was tied early in the second half. The loss dropped Dartmouth to 2-8.

Boehm finished shooting 11-of-16 with a triple and a free throw, and fellow freshman Alex Mitola dropped in 15 points (three three-pointers) while handing out five assists.

The Big Green's leading scorer, Gabas Maldunas, was held scoreless in 19 minutes of action.

Five Bulldogs scored in double figures, led by Frankie Dobbs with 19.

Trailing 25-23 at the intermission, Boehm tied the game three different times in the early minutes of the second half, the last knotting the score at 31-31. But Bryant scored the next 13 points and maintained a double-digit lead the rest of the way.

Boehm scored 10 of the Big Green's first 12 points in the second half.

Bryant led 20-9 in the first half before Dartmouth hit its final five shots to close the half at 25-23.
