Keosha Sanders Named WAC Track Athlete Of The Week

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The Western Athletic Conference's Track & Field Athlete of the Week is an Aggie for the fourth time this season.

Senior Keosha Sanders was named the conference's track star after an impressive showing last weekend at the Don Kirby Elite Invitational in Albuquerque.

The senior from Cocoa, Fla., did her damage in the 60m dash, clocking a new personal-best time of 7.36 to finish third in the finals. Her mark, converted to 7.38 for altitude, ranks first in the WAC and 41st in the nation this season.

Her effort also reset NM State's school record in the event. She owned the previous program-best time of 7.42 before breaking it last Saturday.

Sanders joins teammates and seniors Lashira Tremble and Brooke Wallace as recipients of the WAC's track honor this season. Freshman Dascha Robinson, meanwhile, picked up the recognition one week ago for her performance in field events.  Continue Reading This Post >>

Rice's Last Second Shot Keeps NMSU Men's Basketball Win Streak Alive

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The only thought running through Jabari Rice's mind over the course of the final 6.5 seconds Saturday evening was his last shot against New Mexico back on Nov. 21, 2019.

A three-pointer that rimmed out at the end. One that would have given the Aggies a win over their biggest rivals.

Given another chance in a similar situation nearly three months later, Rice knew failure wasn't an option a second time.

Playing in front of the team that put New Mexico State on the map a half-century ago with its run to the Final Four, Rice banked home a game-winning three-pointer with 0.6 seconds to go to cap a wild 84-82 come-from-behind victory for the Aggies over WAC foe Utah Valley inside the Pan Am Center.   Continue Reading This Post >>

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The Mike Kirby era is off to a strong start.

NM State rolled to an 11-2 win against Texas Southern in Friday afternoon's season opener at The 'Skew behind senior pitcher Chance Hroch's arm and junior infielder Nick Gonzales' bat.

The Aggies (1-0) scored nine unanswered runs, including three on Gonzales' eighth-inning tater, to pull away from the Tigers (0-1).

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - By his own admission, junior forward Johnny McCants had been dealing with some difficulty getting off to a good start as of late for the New Mexico State men's basketball team.

In one of the most dominant nights of his collegiate career, McCants generated a team-high 14 points and completed a monstrous double-double effort by hauling in a career-high 18 rebounds to help lead the Aggies to a scrappy 72-64 victory over the Redhawks.

With the win NM State hit the 20-win mark for the ninth-consecutive season and maintained a three-game lead for the top spot in the WAC standings with five regular season games to go.
