On the first day of college basketball, the UNH Wildcats opened at home with a convincing 95-39 win against an undersized and under skilled Wheelock College.
From the tip, UNH seized control of the backboards, the paint and the game. At the first TV time out, the Cats were up by 5 points with a 10 to 5 advantage. The next 5 minutes saw UNH go on a 20-3 run and the game was pretty much over from there.
UNH was lead by the inside duo of Tanner Leissner [22 pts/14 reb] and Jacoby Armstrong [16 pts]. Freshmen Elijah Jordan added 5 assists in the win. UNH travels to play Texas Tuesday night in Austin.
