WEST HARTFORD, Conn. -- Mark Nwakamma scored 12 points and Nate Sikma 11 as Hartford held off New Hampshire for a 49-44 America East Conference win Wednesday night.

Just under a minute later, two free throws by Sikma gave Hartford (15-12, 8-6) the lead for good after the Wildcats (7-18, 3-10) had regained a one-point advantage.

Nwakamma hit four free throws in the final 11 seconds to secure the victory.
