Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The New Mexico State women's volleyball team dropped the first against Chicago State on Thursday afternoon before bouncing back for a 17-25, 25-23, 25-15, 25-18, to remain unbeaten in Western Athletic Conference play and run its winning streak to 16 matches.

"Defensively, we kind of got going in the second set," said head coach Mike Jordan. "We started digging the ball, trying a little harder to make plays. We got better and finally started digging the volleyball a little better which led to transition opportunities that we scored."

With Cat Kelly unavailable, the Aggies (24-3, 15-0 WAC) started slow and the Cougars (5-25, 1-14 WAC) raced out to a 9-3 lead. NM State battled back with a Savannah Davison kill bringing the score within one at 11-10. However, New Mexico State continued to struggle and the Cougars pulled away for a 25-17 set one victory.  Continue Reading This Post >>

NMSU Volleyball Downs CSU Bakersfield In Four Sets

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

BAKERSFIELD, CA - The New Mexico State volleyball team outlasted a pesky CSU Bakersfield squad behind a strong defensive performance for its 14th-straight win, 30-28, 21-25, 27-25, 25-17 on Thursday night at the Icardo Center. The win means the Aggies (22-3, 13-0 WAC) can clinch the Western Athletic Conference regular-season championship with a win at Grand Canyon on Saturday.
"The block came up big at the end, we finally started getting our hands in good spots," said head coach Mike Jordan. "I thought we dug the ball really well in stretches which probably saved us because we weren't very good offensively or passing it. Defensively we were really good in stretches and I think that was the deciding factor."  Continue Reading This Post >>

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.

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.

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 >>
