Elijah Bonsignore, held to four points, stretched the lead to 11 points with a lay-up with 3:22 to play. Mike Stys added 10 points to the win as SNHU forced Adelphi (4-12) to shoot just 33-percent from the floor.

Le Moyne 76, St. Anselm 74: In Syracuse, N.Y., a 12-5 run over the final 2:45 sparked the Dolphins (10-7, 7-4 NE-10) past the Hawks (11-6, 9-4). John Nielsen’s three-point shot with 2:45 left gave the Hawks a 69-64 lead. Le Moyne scored the next nine straight points behind Nate Champion (23 points), who had seven of them to give the hosts a 73-69 lead.
