After a disappointing exit in the quarterfinal round of the America East Playoffs, the University of New Hampshire (UNH) Wildcats are in complete rebuild mode. The loss to Binghamton also meant the loss of most of head coach Bill Herrion’s roster. The Wildcats have retained just four players from this past season, but only two saw significant minutes in 2021-22. Three players are graduating, and six more have entered the transfer portal. Herrion is trying to make up ground quickly and reload this roster by way of the portal. Here’s how things have shaken out so far:
