The River Hawks raced to a seven-point lead at the halftime break.
Magarity's team, and sophomore center Corinne Coia in particular, responded well to the adversity, posting a 78-71 win.
She had 21 of her points in the second half while making nine of the 10 shots she took.
UNH improved to 18-9 overall and 12-2 in America East.
The Wildcats had swept both ends of a men's-women's doubleheader at UMass-Lowell on Jan. 26.
Senior guard Kelsey Hogan scored 22 points and made three three-point shots against Lowell.
"We turned the ball over on our first five possessions and it was done," Magarity said. "Unfortunately, we had one of those nights."
The Great Danes give everybody fits.
Senior guard Akeem Williams scored 25 points to lead UMass-Lowell.
Senior center Chris Pelcher led UNH with 10 points and 12 rebounds.
