NMSU Mens Basketball Defeats Cal Baptist 86-71

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

RIVERSIDE, CA - One of the only low points of the New Mexico State's 2018-19 season came when California Baptist - one of the nation's newest NCAA Division I squads - shocked the basketball fans around the WAC (and the nation) by handing their Aggies what would wind up being their lone league loss of the season inside the CBU Events Center.

A little over one year later - with that disappointing setback fresh in their minds - the Aggies made sure to show the Lancers who the class of the league is.

Ivan Aurrecoecha turned in his best single-game performance of the season so far by racking up a team-high 20 points, Jonny McCants and Trevelin Queen combined for 28 of the Aggies' 50 second-half points and New Mexico State started WAC play by avenging its only league setback of last season by hammering California Baptist, 86-71 Saturday night.

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - Gia Pack made the game-winning layup with 1.4 seconds left and the New Mexico State women's basketball team stifled a potent California Baptist offense as it started its Western Athletic Conference title defense with a 57-56 win at the Pan American Center on Thursday night. This was NM State's 23rd-straight WAC win at home.

After the Lancers (8-7, 0-1 WAC) started the game on a 5-0 run, New Mexico State (4-10, 1-0 WAC) settled down and took a 6-5 lead with 6:29 to play after an Amanda Soderqvist three. The Lancers then took an 11-8 lead but Rodrea Echols converted a three-point play to start a run that saw the Aggies take a 15-11 lead. CBU clawed back and took a 19-17 lead before a pair of Adrianna Henderson free throws tied the game up heading into the second quarter.  Continue Reading This Post >>

NMSU Men's Basketball Wraps Up Non-Conference With Win Over Northern New Mexico

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - Up through the first 13 games of its 2019-20 season, the New Mexico State men's basketball team had sometimes been judged by what could have been rather than what was.

After seeing two of its expected key contributors miss a combined 27 games due to injury, New Mexico State was - for the first time this season - fully healthy and operating with a complete contingent of players headed into their non-conference finale. With everyone in uniform, the Aggies showed their fans in Pan Am Center Sunday a glimpse of just how potent the they can be when operating at full strength.

Trevelin Queen netted a game-high 17 points, all 12 Aggies who took the floor registered points and New Mexico State put the finishing touches on its regular season non-conference schedule by eviscerating Northern New Mexico, 104-30, Sunday afternoon inside the Pan Am Center.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The New Mexico State women's basketball team fell in its final non-conference game, 67-54, at Abilene Christian on Saturday afternoon at Moody Coliseum. The Wildcats made 10 threes to five for the Aggies.

NM State (3-10, 0-0 WAC) started slow, with ACU (10-1, 0-0 Southland) building a 14-6 lead after five minutes. However, a jumper from Rodrea Echols started an Aggie run that saw them close to 18-13 at the end of the quarter.

The two teams traded buckets to start the second quarter before a pair of ree throws and a three gave ACU an 11-point lead, 28-17, at the 6:35 mark. After the Wildcats opened their lead to 33-19, Amanda Soderqvist hit a three, followed by a Gia Pack jumper with eight seconds left, and NM State trailed 35-24 at the half.  Continue Reading This Post >>

NMSU Men's Basketball Defeats Mississippi State 58-52

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

JACKSON, MS - Nearly a quarter-century had elapsed since the New Mexico State men's basketball team's last victory over a foe from the SEC. Heading into Sunday's tilt with Mississippi State, it was clear that in order to beat the Bulldogs New Mexico State would need to be better than it had been in order to capitalize on its last chance for a marquee non-conference victory.

Thanks largely to a kid from Las Cruces, an Aggie newbie from the Windy City and a well-timed return by one of their on-court leaders, New Mexico State sent a clear message to the rest of the WAC - and the nation, for that matter.

We are back.   Continue Reading This Post >>

NMSU Men's Basketball Downs Arkansas-Pine Bluff 65-40

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - Between the interior play of senior Ivan Aurrecoechea, the inaugural appearance of Evan Gilyard II in a New Mexico State uniform and a shot by Bryce Rewalt that sent the Aggies - and their fans - into hysterics - there were not too many things to feel bad about in the Pan Am Center Wednesday night.

Getting a win merely represented putting a bow on the entire package.

Back on their home floor after a tough game up in Albuquerque, the Aggies got back in the win column by receiving 19 points and nine rebounds from Aurrecoechea and outscored Arkansas-Pine Bluff 25-9 through the last 10 minutes to pick up a 65-40 victory over the Golden Lions.   Continue Reading This Post >>
