LOWELL, Mass. (AP) Daniel Dion hit a turnaround 3-pointer off an inbounds pass with a man in his face at the buzzer as New Hampshire used a 19-2 run in a come-from-behind 78-76 victory over Massachusetts-Lowell Thursday night.

Dion hit nothing but net after missing three earlier treys, and was mobbed in front of his team's bench.

The Wildcats (10-8, 3-2 America East) were trailing by 14 more than midway through the final half when Tanner Leissner sparked the comeback run with a 3-point play. He added three more baskets in the run that was capped by a Jaleen Smith 3-pointer and a 70-67 New Hampshire lead with four minutes remaining.

Leissner finished with 27 points and Jacoby Armstrong 20.

Tyler Livingston (15 points) put UMass-Lowell (7-12, 3-3) ahead 76-75 with a putback at :13 and was fouled, but missed the free throw, setting the stage for Dion. Mark Cornelius led the River Hawks with 18.
