DURHAM, N.H. – After an ugly first half for both teams, Hartford woke up in the second half. In particular, Mark Nwakamma woke up, and he carried the Hawks to a 51-40 win at New Hampshire that stopped a three-game losing streak and also showed why he is this team’s most important player.
Hartford has been a streaky team since the calendar turned over, which isn’t entirely surprising given that this is still a young team. They started by winning their first three America East games before dropping three straight. A year after opening up 0-13, the Hawks have managed to make that three-game losing streak their longest of the season, evidence of the strides this team is making. A lot of that starts with the clear star of Thursday night’s game.
