New Hampshire men's basketball defeated by Drexel, 89-74

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Mike Kouser scored a season-high 30 points and pulled in 14 rebounds to lead Drexel to an 89-74 victory over New Hampshire Sunday.

The Wildcats got 13 points from Allen Gould, while three other players contributed 12 each.

Drexel (10-7 overall; 7-2 America East) overcame New Hampshire's first half full court press, as Kouser keyed a 12-5 run with eight points in the final five minutes to give the Dragons a 47-37 halftime lead.

Drexel extended its lead to 19 points and won despite turning the ball over 20 times. But they got help from the Wildcats (5-13; 4-5), which hurt themselves with a 30.8 percent (12-of-39) field goal showing in the second half.

Kouser, who hit on 12-of-13 field goals, posted his second straight double-double to give the Dragons their sixth straight win, and a share of first place in the America East.

Stephen Starks, the America East scoring leader, added 21 points for the Dragons, which played its second consecutive game without Joe Linderman, the Dragons' second-leading scorer, who was sidelined with bronchitis.
