Women's basketball: UNH advances in tourney
The Wildcats, led by Nashua's Kelsey Hogan and Corinne Coia, rallied from a seven-point second-half deficit to top Vermont, 85-79, in an America East quarterfinal at SEFCU Arena in Albany, N.Y.
Hogan, named to the AE all-conference team, emerged from first-half foul trouble to score 13 of her 18 points in the second half. Coia, a sophomore from North Smithfield, R.I., poured in 11 of her team-best 21 points in the second half. The Wildcats scored 52 points in the second half to pull away late.
UNH (19-11) tied the game at 44 on Elizabeth Belanger's bucket early in the second half. The Wildcats took their first lead (51-49) since midway through the first half when Kaylee Kilpatrick notched an old-fashioned three-point play.
Belanger added 16 points, 12 in the second half surge and Ariel Gaston chipped in with 10.
