NMSU Men's Basketball Pulls Away From Utah Valley, 70-56

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

OREM, UT - Utah Valley's Emmanuel Olojakpoke had just answered a fast-break dunk by New Mexico State's Trevelin Queen with a two-handed jam of his own that whittled the Aggies' lead down to two, 40-38, by connecting on a runner in the lane with 15:25 to go.

Two-hundred-and-fifteen seconds later, Johnny McCants emphatically ended a 15-1 Aggie run by tossing down a monstrous one-handed slam that hiked the visitors' lead to 54-39.

As they say, life comes at you fast.

Showing off the spurtability of their offense, the Aggies' 15-1 scoring spree represented just a part of their larger 28-11 surge over a span of 9:36 that allowed the WAC's lone squad without a league loss to claim a 70-56 win over the Wolverines Thursday night inside the UCCU Center.   Continue Reading This Post >>

NMSU Women's Basketball Falls At UMKC 56-52

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

KANSAS CITY, MO – The New Mexico State women’s basketball team fell 56-52 to Kansas City at the Swinney Rec Center in a defensive slugfest on Sunday afternoon. The game had originally been scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 11, but it was pushed back a day due to inclement weather in the Kansas City area.

The Aggies (5-11, 2-1 WAC) fell behind 10-6 early but a three from Rodrea Echols sparked a run that saw NM State take an 18-12 lead. The Roos (10-8, 3-1) then scored the final four points of the quarter and New Mexico State led 18-16 after one. NM State held KC to 30.8-percent shooting for the quarter.

The second quarter began back-and-forth while Kansas City started to get hot from three. With the game tied at 22, the Roos hit back-to-back threes that gave them the momentum and they took a 33-28 lead into the locker room at the half.  Continue Reading This Post >>

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - No matter how slim the margin, how hard-fought it was or how unattractive it may have looked at times, a win is a win.
That's that mindset of the New Mexico State men's basketball team after surviving their first of what will surely be many WAC nail-biters Saturday evening inside the Pan Am Center.

Terrell Brown looked like the Terrell Brown of old by pouring in a game and season-high 18 points, Jabari Rice posted New Mexico State's first double-double of the season by going for 13 points and a career-high 10 rebounds as the Aggies held off a late charge by Kansas City to secure a 74-71 victory over the Roos.   Continue Reading This Post >>

NMSU Men's Basketball Routs Chicago State 93-54

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - Not even one week into Western Athletic Conference play, just one team in the conference is without a loss in league action.

Yes, to the surprise of few, New Mexico State is that team.

Trevelin Queen led a quartet of double-digit home team scorers by netting a game-high 17 points, the Aggies drilled 47.1-percent (16-of-34) of their shots from three-point land and at the end of the night found themselves atop the WAC standings thanks to a 93-54 blowout win over Chicago State.

With a loss by CSU Bakersfield Tuesday night as well as Kansas City's first WAC setback of the year over in the Lone Star State minutes after the Aggies put the finishing touches on the Cougars, New Mexico State sits as the league's only team without a setback in conference tilts.
