ORONO, Maine (AP) - Iba Camara scored a career-high 21 points and pulled down 11 rebounds and New Hampshire defeated Maine 74-63 on Thursday night.

Tanner Leissner added 17 points, Jaleen Smith 16 and Daniel Dion 15 with the three collecting four assists each. The Wildcats (12-7, 3-2 America East) shot 55 percent in winning for the third time in four games and matching their best record through 19 games since the 1994-95 season.

Wes Myers scored 25 points, Vincent Eze 13 and Jaquan McKennon 10 for the Black Bears (5-16, 1-5), who have lost three in a row and 10 of their last 11.
