NMSU Women's Basketball Drops Season Opener 60-58 To UC Riverside

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The New Mexico State women’s basketball team stormed back from down 10 in the fourth but dropped a 60-58 contest to UC Riverside on opening night at the Pan American Center.

“You can’t turn the ball over 18 times in close games and be successful,” said head coach Brooke Atkinson. “Our fight was really good. We drew from our defense to get us going offensively. We just have to be able to play better with the lead and get good shots down the stretch.”

The Highlanders (1-0, 0-0 Big West) took an early 6-2 lead before Gia Pack capped an Aggie run with a three and a layup off a steal to give the Aggies (0-1, 0-0 WAC) a 9-6 lead. After the two teams traded baskets, Aaliyah Prince finished off a three-point play for a 16-12 NM State lead with 18 seconds to go in the period. However, UC Riverside hit a three at the horn to trim the lead to 16-15.  Continue Reading This Post >>

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The New Mexico State men’s basketball team opened up its 2019-20 campaign inside the Pan American Center versus Western New Mexico on Tuesday night. After scoring the first 16 points of the game, the Aggies never looked back en route to a decisive 92-46 win over the Mustangs at home.

Following the lopsided season-opening victory head coach Chris Jans said, “Obviously they were outmanned and we anticipated that as coaches, but we kept telling the guys to play against the game and play to get better. We didn’t want them to get caught up in the score and that’s probably the brightest spot for me that they handled that in a mature way.”  Continue Reading This Post >>

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

CHICAGO, IL - Eliudth Gonzalez scored the golden goal in overtime to give the New Mexico State women’s soccer team a 2-1 win over Western Athletic Conference foe Chicago State in Chicago on Sunday afternoon.

“We got the win, enough said,” head coach Rob Baarts said. “It wasn’t pretty but sometimes you have to on the road and battle for a win. That’s a team that played on emotion, they attacked us hard, got the goal and once they got the goal it was a problem. Once they started getting tired, it was only a matter of time and we got the win.”

The first half passed uneventfully with neither side able to break through while the Cougars (0-16-0, 0-5-0 WAC) ability to pack the box gave the Aggies (3-11-2, 2-4-0) fits. Then, after the half, Chicago State got on the board in the 46th minute to take a 1-0 lead.  Continue Reading This Post >>
