Leissner’s 31 Points Propels New Hampshire Win Over Detroit Mercy


New Hampshire junior forward Tanner Leissner scored 31 points in New Hampshire’s 86-70 win over Detroit Mercy.

The 6’7 face-up 4 scored 18 of his 31 points in the second half and shot 9 for 13 on the night while grabbing eight rebounds. Senior guard Jaleen Smith chipped in 20 points and 11 rebounds while fellow senior, Daniel Dion, finished with 14 points and 5 rebounds.
