LAS CRUCES, N.M. – Senior forward Jemerrio Jones became the first New Mexico State men’s basketball player to record a triple-double in Tuesday night’s 84-62 win over Eastern New Mexico since former Aggie All-American Daniel Mullings did so against Hawaii back on Feb. 23, 2012.

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - New Mexico State volleyball head coach Mike Jordan constructed another spectacular signing class for the 2018 season. The three athletes join an elite Aggie squad that posted a 21-8 record in 2017, which included NM State's third-straight Western Athletic Conference Regular Season Championship.

"This class adds exceptionally athletic and versatile athletes. We needed to add players that we won't have to substitute out of the game for ball control purposes. All of them are six rotation attackers and defenders and they'll make us more versatile," Jordan said. "They're all really great people as well, everyone close to these athletes raves about how hard they work and what great teammates they are."
