College Basketball: SNHU men advance; St. A women fall


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.

Christie is the real deal

We have found Gov. Chris Christie to be the most consistent, the most confident in his abilities, the most tested under fire, and the most likely to regain the White House from a disastrous Democratic regime.
