Huge wins for the both the Aggie men's and women's basketball teams last night. We'll start with the women as Danisha Corbett put together a career-high 31 points last night helping the Aggies take down Boise State 87-71. For Corbett it was her second-straight 20-plus game. We're not 100 percent sure but that may be the first time in her Aggie career that she has notched consecutive 20-plus point performances. All three Aggie seniors came to play last night as Madison Spence added 18 points and Jasmine Lowe added 17.

It should also be noted that a couple of milestones were set last night as Danisha Corbett's 7-of-9 performance from behind the arc puts her in a tie for second most made three pointers in a game behind only the great Mari Sanchez-Galaz who dropped in 10 against UL-Lafayette on February 23, 2002. Jasmine Lowe finished with 11 assists which is the most by an Aggie since Mari Sanchez-Galaz dished out 14 against Idaho on November 17, 2001.

With the victory, the Aggies move into third place by themselves. They'll take on Idaho on Saturday afternoon and if they can win that game, they'll be 5-2 headed into a tough stretch where they take on Fresno State in the Pan Am and then Louisiana Tech in back-to-back games.

The Aggie men picked up a huge win last night in overtime defeating Boise State 96-87. We mentioned yesterday that the winner of the last eight BSU/NMSU games had scored at least 80 points, make that nine straight games. We also mentioned that the average final score in those eight games was 92-85, last night's score was nearly on that average.

The win became even bigger given Idaho's stunning loss to a hapless (apparently not-so-hapless now) Louisiana Tech team in Ruston, by 15 points. Their loss coupled with Boise's loss to the Aggies and Nevada's win over Fresno State creates a four-way logjam for second place at 5-3 in the league. A win on Saturday would keep the Aggies in a tie for second (or solo second depending on the outcome of the Boise State/Louisiana Tech matchup, Nevada is off on Saturday).

The Idaho loss also goes a long way towards Utah State's regular season title hopes. The UtAgs have wins over every WAC team except Idaho this season (the two have yet to play each other). USU would have to lose at least four of their final eight games to not win the regular season title. We simply don't see that happening.

Back to New Mexico State, with a win on Saturday, they will control their own destiny in terms of securing a top two seed. Boise State still has games at Nevada and Utah State, Idaho still faces Utah State twice, Nevada still faces Utah State and still has to come to Las Cruces.

As we said before, this homestand is vitally important to the Aggies' hopes of finishing in the top four in the conference standings and after last night, the Aggies hopes of finishing in the top two got a lot better.
