NMSU Men's Basketball Downs Illinois 74-69

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

CHICAGO, IL - It was only fitting on a night where both New Mexico State and Illinois were set to honor legendary head coach Lou Henson that the Aggies gutted out a 74-69 win Saturday night over the Illini at the United Center – giving NM State its first win over a Big Ten Conference foe since Henson did it in 2004.

Oddly enough, that win in 2004 was against Northwestern – another team from Illinois on a neutral floor at the BP Top of the World Classic in Fairbanks, Alaska.

After a bad start in the second-half, New Mexico State (9-2) saw its once 15-point lead from the first half dwindle and dissipate with 10:15 left to play when Aaron Jordan hit a pair of free-throws and gave Illinois (8-5) the 45-43 lead.  Continue Reading This Post >>

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.
