New Hampshire lost 12 of the first 14 games it played in 2004, but any negative thoughts from those games are long gone in Durham. The Wildcats won four of their final six games, including their first America East Tournament game since 1995, and are looking to carry that positive energy over into the 2004-05 season.

"The development of our young guys and the maturity of our older guys started to blend near the end of the year," New Hampshire coach Phil Rowe said.
