The Daily Aggie :: 11/26/10

The Aggie women's basketball team returns to action today as the Thanksgiving Classic gets underway at the Pan Am. The Aggies will face off against Alcorn State today at 6:30 p.m. The Lady Braves are 0-3 on the season with their closest loss coming against UTEP by 13 points. Alcorn State guard Carolinsia Crumbly is averaging 20.3 points per game and fellow guard Kiara Ruffin is averaging 13 points per game. Expect the Aggies to try to key in on Crumbly. Crumbly is not only the leading scorer but also their best three point shooter so far this season hitting 11-of-20 attempts.

The Lady Braves have four players who have played the bulk of their minutes and they are all guards. The Aggies should be able to wear down the Braves with their depth and should be able to dominate the boards and points in the paint tonight.

The game is scheduled for a 6:30 p.m. (MT) tipoff and radio coverage will be available on KSNM AM 570 in Las Cruces with streaming audio also available via Aggie Access (subscription required).

bleedCrimson.net Weekly Coach Walker Interview :: 11/23/10

bleedCrimson.net: Your thoughts on the game against Nevada?
DeWayne Walker: It was much more competitive than last year. Last year was a disaster game. I really thought we made some improvements schematically on defense and we get one more shot at these guys next year before they leave the conference. I just didn't feel the score indicated how the game actually went. I thought we moved the ball on them pretty good on them throughout the game we just couldn't score any touchdowns. Obviously Manley throwing the pick six didn't help us any. The one touchdown before halftime was uneventful but for the most part I really thought we improved this year versus last year.

bc.net: Your defense did a good job of containing Colin Kaepernick's running game holding him to under 50 yards of rushing.
DW: I thought Coach Lindsey came up with a great game plan and I think our defense did a great job. I think we kept him to 48 yards rushing. They probably threw the ball a little bit more. I think the game was never close enough for them to feel that we were threatening them but I knew they felt like we were just more competitive and we made them earn everything they got. I think they took a couple more chances throwing the ball just trying to get Kaepernick ready for the Boise game but again I thought it was a good gameplan and I thought we executed pretty good.  Continue Reading This Post >>

The Daily Aggie :: 11/25/10

Happy Thanksgiving everyone and a very special congratulations to the Utah State Aggie volleyball team for their 3-0 upset of No. 3 Hawai'i last night in the championship match of the WAC Volleyball tournament. The Utah State Aggies defeated New Mexico State twice in the last week and played phenomenal last night in the upset. They ended UH's 11-year stranglehold on the WAC Tournament. While it still doesn't feel too good to have the Aggies go out in the semifinal round, it softens the blow a little bit knowing that they lost to the eventual WAC champions.

Aggie sports kick back into action tomorrow as the women's basketball team hosts the Thanksgiving Classic. The Aggies host Alcorn State tomorrow at 6:30 p.m. and in the early game at 4:00 p.m. it will be Louisiana-Monroe versus Northern Iowa.
