On Tuesday morning, the Dartmouth women’s basketball team will host Granite State rival, New Hampshire, at Leede Arena.
SCOUTING THE WILDCATS
New Hampshire enters the contest coming off a weekend win over Northeastern, 65-50, at home.

Through the season, the Wildcats are averaging a 41.4 shooting percentage from field goal range, and is solid at the line with a season average of 73.5 percent.
LAST TIME AGAINST NEW HAMPSHIRE

LAST TIME OUT
Dartmouth is coming off a trip to New York where the Big Green faced Army and Marist. After falling to Army on Wednesday, November 29, Dartmouth bounced back and took a 60-51 win over Marist on Saturday night. Cy Lippold scored 17 points against the Red Foxes to help take the win, while Letkewicz posted her second double-double of the year, 12 points and 10 rebounds, to ensure the comeback.
STRENGTH AT THE LINE
Through the first six games this season, the Big Green have registered a free throw shooting percentage of 80.6, with 54 of 67 attempts made. With a shooting average of 44.9 and shooting 40.8 from three-point range, making free throws has helped aid the Dartmouth offense this season.
After hosting UNH, the Big Green will remain home to play Maine on Saturday, December 9 at 12 p.m., before hitting the road again to travel to Boulder, Colorado to take on Colorado Monday, December 11.
