The Southern New Hampshire University men's basketball team defeated American International College 68-53 in a first round Northeast-10 playoff game at the Fieldhouse in Manchester Friday night.

The Penmen (16-10) will play at Southern Connecticut State University Sunday at 3 p.m.

Rodney Sanders led a balanced SNHU attack with 14 points. Aleksander Dobrovic added 13, Elijah Bonsignore had 12 and Chris Walters had 11 points and nine rebounds.

AIC (9-19) was led by Spencer Braithwaite with 13 points.

The Penmen led 16-10 through the first 13 minutes of the game, but AIC mounted a charge (on a 15-1 run) that placed the Yellow Jackets on top 25-17 just before the half.

SNHU fell behind by as much as 38-31 in the second half before taking command. A 10-2 run for the Penmen gave SNHU the lead back to stay and the hosts put the game away from there.
