UNH hockey, St. A basketball games postponed

The University of New Hampshire men's hockey game scheduled for Friday night at Providence College has been postponed until Wednesday because of the impending storm. The two teams will meet at Schneider Arena on the Providence College campus at 7 p.m. that night.

The next game for UNH now becomes Sunday's home contest against Providence, scheduled for 4 p.m.

St. Anselm College, meanwhile, has postponed women's and men's basketball doubleheader against visiting Bentley University from Saturday to Sunday. The women's game will start at 1:30 p.m., the men's at 3:30.

That change led to postponement of the Hawks' next basketball games from Tuesday to Wednesday, against Merrimack College, also at St. A's Stoutenburgh Gymnasium. The women will play at 5:30 p.m., the men at 7:30.

The St. A men, ranked 15th in the most recent NCAA Division II polls, are looking to strengthen their hold on first place in the Northeast-10 conference. The Hawks are 13-3 in the NE-10 and 17-3 overall.

UNH is in second place in Hockey East with a record of 11-6-1 in the league, and Providence is in fifth place at 8-6-4. The Friars are three points behind UNH.

The Wildcats are 16-7-2 overall, ranked No. 4 in one national poll and No. 5 in another.

Providence (10-10-5 overall) beat UNH, 6-5, in the first game of their three-game regular-season series on Jan. 19 in Durham.
