HAMILTON, N.Y. (AP) Luke Roh scored on a layup with 2 seconds remaining to give Colgate a 65-63 victory over New Hampshire in a nonconference game Sunday.

Murphy Burnatowski scored a career-high 31 points, including 18 in the second half, for the Raiders (5-9), who have won two in a row after losing six straight.

Colgate led by as many as 10 points, 39-29, early in the second half, but the Wildcats (4-8) rallied to take a 63-61 lead with 2:10 remaining on a three-point play by Ferg Myrick, who finished with 23 points.

Mitch Rolls' jumper tied the game at the 1:39 mark.

After failed possessions by each team, New Hampshire's Chandler Rhoads missed the front end of a 1-and-1. Roh, after missing a jumper, got his own rebound and scored the game-winner.

Rhoads had 13 points and nine assists and Chris Pelcher had 12 points and nine rebounds for New Hampshire.
