College Sports Roundup: Hogan's trey lifts UNH women

University of New Hampshire guard Kelsey Hogan of Nashua hit a deep 3-pointer at the buzzer to beat Stony Brook, 49-46, and send the Wildcats to their first America East semifinal since 2005.

Hogan finished with a team-high 13 points while Morgan Frame had a double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds.

The game was played evenly throughout, with New Hampshire holding a slight edge in field goal percentage, shooting 34 percent to Stony Brook's 25.9, while the Seawolves outrebounded the Wildcats, 41-38.

The Wildcats have defeated the Seawolves in three straight games in the America East Championship.

New Hampshire will face No. 1 seed Albany on Sunday at 1 p.m. in the second women's semifinal. The Wildcats look to become just the second five seed to beat a one seed.

Cornell 60, Dartmouth 48: At Ithaca, N.Y., sporting a six-point lead, Cornell closed the game with an 11-5 burst to earn the victory and a season sweep of the Big Green. Abbey Schmitt and Nicola Zimmer led the Dartmouth (6-21, 4-9 Ivy League) offense with 11 points each, while Tia Dawson had a team-best seven rebounds.



Men's basketball



Dartmouth 76, Cornell 62: At Hanover, Gabas Maldunas scored a career-high 28 points to lead the Big Green. Joining him in double figures were Alex Mitola with 15 points and Tyler Melville with 13. Dartmouth (8-19, 4-9 Ivy) won for the second time in the last three games.



Men's hockey



Harvard 2, Dartmouth 1: At Hanover, Brian Hart's goal with less than three minutes to play snapped a tie and gave No. 12 Harvard the first round ECAC hockey tournament victory. The teams meet again in Hanover tonight in the best-of-three series' second game at 7 p.m. Should Dartmouth win, Game 3 would be Sunday at 5 p.m.

After a scoreless first period, Harvard grabbed a one-goal lead with Desmond Beregin's middle period goal at 9:53 of the frame.

Fifth-seeded Dartmouth, which was held scoreless through the initial two periods, tied the game behind Jesse Beamish's strike at 9:47 of the third.



Baseball



St. Leo 8, St. Anselm 7: At St. Leo, Fla., Daniel Torres hit a two-out walk-off RBI single for the hosts. An inning earlier, St. Anselm put together a five-run burst to tie the game at 7-7. Rett Ostafin and Jack Hopkins had two hits each for the Hawks and Kyle Grumoli knocked in three runs.



Indoor Track



NCAA Division III Championships: At Naperville, Ill., Keene State's Janel Haggerty turned in person bests in the long jump and the 800-meter run to capture the national championship in the five-event pentathlon.

Haggerty opened the competition with a victory in the 60-meter hurdles in 9.04, and followed with a third-place tie in the high jump with the bar at 5-feet, 3-inches. A dismal effort in the shot put dropped her to sixth place in the competition before she rallied with a fourth-place 17-0.75 in the long jump and a second-place 2:22.41 in the 800.

She finished with a school-record 3,467 points.

NCAA Division I Championships: At Fayetteville, Ark., Dartmouth's Abbey D'Agostino, for the second time in her collegiate career, is a national champion as she won 5000-meter run in a program-record 15:28.11, more than five seconds ahead of second-place Betsy Saina of Iowa State.



Skiing



USCSA Nationals: At Sun Valley, Idaho, the Hawks ended races with a pair of fifth place finishes in both slalom and giant slalom competition. Caitlin Forbes was third in the slalom (1:32.45) and eighth in the GS (2:12.22).
