But the Wildcats gave the Great Danes a run this time. Albany ran UNH out of the gym, 88-47, in Albany in late January.
They answered UNH’s challenges and locked up the America East regular season championship with the win. They improved to 25-3 overall, are a perfect 15-0 in the league and have now won 38 consecutive games against league teams.
Sophomore guard Elizabeth Belanger had 20 points and eight rebounds for the Wildcats, senior guard Kelsey Hogan had 10 points, four rebounds and three assists and freshman guard Kristen Anderson came off the bench for six assists and three rebounds.
Albany stretched its 26-24 halftime lead to 35-28 early in the second half, but UNH stuck around and got within 39-37 on a Belanger three-pointer and Hogan foul shot with 9:24 to go.
The Wildcats trailed 21-10 with 9:10 left in the first half — shades of the game in Albany. UNH was down 46-20 at the half in that one.
