NMSU Men's Basketball Falls At No. 17/19 Arizona

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

TUSCON, AZ - Staring a 10-point deficit squarely in the face after the game's first 3:45, the New Mexico State men's basketball team used a 12-5 run powered by the play of senior Trevelin Queen to cut #17/19 Arizona's lead down to three, but the Wildcats answered with a 28-9 run to end the first half and walked away with an 83-53 victory Sunday afternoon at the McKale Center.

Size and shooting were the Wildcats' biggest advantages as freshman Zeke Nnaji finished with a game-high 19 points on 7-of-7 shooting to lead the Wildcats. Arizona shot 52.6-percent (30-of-57) from the field compared to a 32.7-percent (18-of-55) clip by the Aggies.

EL PASO, TX - The New Mexico State men’s basketball team traveled to the Don Haskins Center to take on Battle of I-10 rival UTEP on Tuesday night in El Paso, Texas. A tough night shooting from the field and the line hampered NM State as they fell to UTEP, 65-50.

To open the rivalry contest, the Aggies struggled to knock down shots and it was not until 2:58 into the game that the Crimson & White got on the board. Trailing by four early, Trevelin Queen hit a three that was followed by another triple by Terrell Brown to give NM State it’s first lead of the night, 8-7.

Following the lead change the teams then traded baskets all the way until a media timeout at the 8:08 mark where NM State trailed by just one, 16-15. Each team rattled off a small run before the Aggies knocked down the final two baskets and only trailed the Miners, 28-25, after the first 20 minutes of action.  Continue Reading This Post >>

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The New Mexico State men’s basketball recorded its 12th-straight victory Tuesday night with an 80-42 victory over Texas A&M International in the Pan American Center.
