Dartmouth and New Hampshire field the only two Division I college basketball teams in the Granite State. The Big Green and the Wildcats have met 67 times since 1908, with Dartmouth holding a 34–33 edge in the series. Twenty-one of the 67 games have been decided by a single basket; 30 have been decided by two baskets or fewer.
The two teams have played at least once every season since 1971, with the longest gap between games occurring between 1934 and 1952. The longest winning streak for either team in the 108-year history of the series is eight (Dartmouth, 1986 to 1992). Over the last quarter-century, however, New Hampshire has dominated the series, winning 17 of 25 games.
The most recent game in the series was won by Dartmouth, 64–63, at Leede Arena on December 31, 2016.
New Hampshire Wildcats men's ice hockey and Dartmouth Big Green men's ice hockey, the only Division I college hockey teams in New Hampshire, play once a year. The first game between the teams was played in 1970 at the Boston Garden.
Beginning in 2004, the annual game has occasionally been played in Manchester; UNH leads in these neutral-site games, sponsored by RiverStone Resources of Manchester and billed as the "RiverStone Cup" series, 6–3.
