PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Sean McGonagill scored 23 points, including three free throws inside the final minute, as Brown survived a late rally to defeat New Hampshire 72-68 Tuesday night.
Brown (7-6) had led by as many as 19 after halftime before New Hampshire (2-12) mounted a comeback in the final 13 minutes, sparked by a Jaleen Smith 3-pointer.
Smith, who finished with a career-high 15 points, sank another 3 to pull the Wildcats within 69-63 with 34 seconds left. But McGonagill and Steven Spieth sank 3 of 4 free throws in the final seconds to blunt the comeback try and end a four-game losing streak for Brown.
Jordon Bronner led the Wildcats with 23 points, including a bucket in the final second.
