WORCESTER, Mass. -- Austin Butler came off the bench to score 16 points, making 4 of 7 from 3-point range, and Matt Zignorski hit 3 of 4 free throws in the final 17 seconds for his only points of the game as Holy Cross held off New Hampshire 62-58 on Saturday to snap a six-game losing streak.
Holy Cross topped the Wildcats (2-8) despite being outrebounded 49-30 and shooting just 50 percent (7 of 14) at the free-throw line.
Holy Cross led by just three points before Butler nailed a 3-pointer and followed that with a 3-point play to push the lead to 37-28 with 13:04 left to play.
Reed scored 12 straight points -- all on 3-pointers -- to pull the Wildcats within 44-41 with 5:31 remaining. But New Hampshire misfired on three straight 3-pointers and Holy Cross made just enough free throws down the stretch to hold on.
