The Aggies were led by a game-high 34 points from Troy Gillenwater who finished 12-of-20 from the field and 8-of-10 from the free throw line. The Aggies struggled from the free throw line in regulation hitting just 21-of-34 attempts but were a perfect 13-of-13 in the five minute overtime period.

The entire game was hotly contested asa the Aggies jumped out to an early 12-6 lead before the Broncos would go on a 13-7 run to tie the game at 19. Boise State would take their first lead of the game on a three pointer from Paul Noonan with 9:27 left to play in the half but the lead would be short-lived as Hernst Laroche would answer with a jumper to tie the game at 22.

Danisha Corbett Unstoppable As Aggies Crush Broncos 87-71

Danisha CorbettAggie senior guard Danisha Corbett scored a career-best 31 points hitting seven three pointers and leading her team to an 87-71 pounding of Boise State on Thursday night. The entire Aggie senior class performed well as Madison Spence added 18 points and was a perfect 4-of-4 from three point distance while Jasmine Lowe recorded 11 assists to go along with 17 points. Lowe's 11 assists were the most by an Aggie since NM State Hall of Fame point guard Mari Sanchez-Galaz dished out 10 during the 2001 season.

The Aggies started the game on a 17-2 run fueled by three three pointers coming from Madison Spence, Danisha Corbett and Kaitlyn Soto as the Aggies hit six of their first eight shots from the field. Madison Spence would hit a three to put the Aggies up 20-5 with 12:47 left in the first half and would extend their lead to 17 points on another jumper by Madison Spence with 11:17 left in the half. The Broncos would chip away at the Aggie lead over the next five minutes as they would go on a 16-8 run to cut the Aggies' lead to single-digits at 32-23. Danisha Corbett would bury a three to put the Aggies back up by a dozen but the Broncos would get a bucket from Lauren Lenhardt with 4:57 left in the half to cut the Aggies' lead to eight at 35-27. The Broncos would trip the lead to seven points but a quick 5-0 run would give the Aggies an 12-point lead at 41-29 at halftime.  Continue Reading This Post >>

The Daily Aggie :: 01/27/11

It's a big night for Aggie basketball as both the men and the women are in action. The men host Boise State while the women are at Boise State. The Aggie men sit 4-3 in conference play and because of tiebreaker rules, they are in 5th place in the league. The Aggies lost to Boise State earlier this season in Boise. The Aggie offense sputtered in the second half after a blistering first half that saw the Aggies shoot 69.6 percent and hit eight first half threes. The Aggies hit just nine buckets in the second half and struggled to a 37.5 percent shooting half. Despite that the Aggies still only lost by three points but it was a game that the Aggies let slip through their fingers.

These two teams have has some high-scoring classics over the past several seasons and if you love offense, this is the game for you. The winner of the past eight meetings has scored at least 80 points in each of the eight games and the average final score over those eight games is 92-85 with each team winning four games.

Three factors to watch for tonight, transition defense, the Aggies did a terrible job against Utah State in this area. Look for improvement tonight. Rebounding. The Aggies had a horrendous time grabbing rebounds last week and were out-rebounded by an astounding 28 boards, 13 against Nevada and 15 against Utah State. Free throw shooting. The Aggies had a rough go of it against USU hitting just 5-of-13 attempts. Much has been made of the Aggies' ability to get to the line this season as they lead the nation in free throw attempts, however, if you can't knock 'em down, it doesn't do you much good (other than getting the other team in foul trouble). Third, the Aggie offense sputtered in the second half against Nevada and was not particularly efficient against Utah State. The Aggies need to get their offensive woes figured out in a hurry.

Tonight's game is scheduled for a 7:00 p.m. (MT) tip-off and can be seen on AggieVision, ESPN Full Court and streaming online on ESPN3.com. Radio coverage will be available on the Aggie Sports Network and streaming audio is available via Aggie Access (subscription required).

The Aggie women's basketball team is in Boise to take on the Broncos. The Aggies are 3-2 in conference play and coming off a very solid win against Utah State this past Saturday. It's an opportunity for the Aggies to stay in the top half of the standings.

The Aggies have had mixed success in Boise while in the WAC. Last season the Aggies won 87-83 in overtime, the season before that they lost by 15, in 2007-08 they lost by one in overtime, the season before that they lost by 18 and the first season in the WAC they lost by 25 (but defeated BSU in the WAC tournament by one).

Tonight's game is scheduled for a 7:00 p.m. (MT) tip-off and can be heard on KSNM AM 570 with streaming audio available via Aggie Access (subscription required).

The Daily Aggie :: 01/26/11

The college softball Preseason Top 25 polls were released yesterday with a pair of WAC teams garnering votes. The Aggies did not receive votes but with a strong non-conference showing, they could earn a Top 25 ranking this season. The Aggies will have plenty of opportunity to showcase their senior-laden squad with games against Preseason Top 10 teams in Arizona, Arizona State, Oklahoma and Hawai'i as well two other teams who are receiving votes in the Preseason Top 25 in Fresno State and East Carolina.

This could be the season that the Aggies finally break through to the NCAA Regionals but much of that will depend on the stability and consistency in the circle. The Aggies will rely heavily on a pair of true sophomores in Carissa Theis and Alex Newman. Newman was a rock for the Aggies coming out of the bullpen last season as a true freshman. The Aggies also have a heralded freshman pitcher by the name of Celisha Walker who has already been thrown into the frying pan when she started against the NPF All-Stars last fall.

We'll have more in the next week or two on the Aggie softball program when we preview the 2011 team with Coach Rodolph.

bleedCrimson.net Weekly Coach Menzies Interview :: 01/25/11

Editorial Note:This week's interview was conducted through a teleconference with members of the media from the Las Cruces Sun-News and Albuquerque Journal. The questions asked by bleedCrimson.net are marked as such.

Jason Groves: Your thoughts on being 4-3? You're right there.
Marvin Menzies: Yeah, we're in the hunt. I wish we could have at least split this road trip. Obviously the first choice would have been to win both of them. We were playing pretty going into that, I knew Nevada was due for a good game just watching them. They played very well against us and we didn't play very well. Partly because of their defense, they did a good job. It's one of those games where you look at that one and then the Utah State environment is always tough to win in, we got off to a good start and then shot selection and in general our offense sputtered real bad. That took us out of having a chance to win that one because I thought we defended real well at Utah State. Everything's gotta be a perfect storm, everything's gotta come together to win at that place. They've got a phenomenal environment. You need to have experienced guys and then you need to play well too to win there. Overall now at 4-3, obviously we'd like to have a better record at this point and still say we're competing for a league championship but right now Utah State is in the driver's seat but there's nine games left and that's a lot of games. We've gotta hold serve here at home first. That's the biggest thing we can put our focus on right now is just taking care of business here against Boise and Idaho this weekend. If we can do that I'm sure next week sitting here we're feeling a little different and heading in the right direction.  Continue Reading This Post >>
