BAKERSFIELD, CA - New Mexico State volleyball faced Utah Valley in the championship match of the 2018 Western Athletic Conference tournament at the Icardo Center on Saturday night. The Aggies trounced the Wolverines 19-25, 28-26, 25-20, 25-17 to earn the WAC tournament title.

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The New Mexico State men’s basketball team led the entire way Wednesday night in the Pan American Center and dominated Eastern New Mexico 92-65.

That we respected our opponent, we respected the game, that we’re not only competing against Eastern New Mexico, but we’re competing against future opponents. I was, for the most part, pretty pleased with them adapting that mantra and having the right frame of mind both in shoot around and in warm-ups.
