Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The year was 2015-16. That's the last time - prior to this season, of course - that a UTEP men's basketball team had opened up a season with five or more consecutive wins.

Much like they did almost a half-decade ago, the Miners rolled into the Pan Am Center Tuesday night hoping to remain perfect and continue one of their program's best starts to a season.

Just like what transpired in 2015-16, however, New Mexico State made sure their longtime rivals' unbeaten run would come to an end in one of college basketball's most hostile environments.   Continue Reading This Post >>

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

GEORGETOWN, GRAND CAYMAN - A classic tale of two halves scenario played itself out Wednesday night inside John Gray Gymnasium during the title tilt of the 2019 Cayman Classic, and unfortunately for the New Mexico State men's basketball team they found themselves on the wrong end of that story.

After opening up a 15-point lead in the late stages of the first half, the Aggies were outscored 51-32 over the final 23:57 and dropped a 68-64 decision to George Mason in the first meeting between the two programs. The setback means the Aggies were forced to settle for a runner-up finish at the 2019 Cayman Classic while the Patriots won their first MTE title since 1993-94.

NMSU Men's Basketball Cruises Past South Florida, Advances To Cayman Islands Classic Championship Game

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

GEORGETOWN, GRAND CAYMAN - Losing is a word that has almost no association with New Mexico State basketball. That's why it was so alarming to coaches, players and fans to see the Aggies go through their early-season struggles.

Finally, after a few weeks that seemed much longer than they actually were, the Aggies started to make the right moves. Do the things they had done in the past. Look how they were supposed to look. That was especially true Tuesday.

For New Mexico State head coach Chris Jans, he witnessed 40 minutes of familiarity. Forty minutes that were long awaited and forty minutes that reminded onlookers what Aggie basketball stands for.   Continue Reading This Post >>

NMSU Men's Basketball Survives Colorado State In Overtime

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

GEORGETOWN, GRAND CAYMAN - Thursday night inside the Pan Am Center, redshirt sophomore Jabari Rice missed a potential game-winning corner three in the waning seconds against New Mexico which would have put his team in a great position to win.

With his team headed to overtime on international soil, Rice seized the moment and proceeded to get the job done.

Colorado State forced overtime when David Roddy drilled a pair of free throws with three seconds to go, but once the extra session started Rice simply took over and scored 12 of his game-high 21 points to lead the Aggies to a hard-fought 78-70 win over the Rams in the opening game of the 2019 Cayman Classic Monday afternoon inside John Gray Gymnasium.   Continue Reading This Post >>

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The Battle of I-25 was just that - a battle - as host New Mexico State owned a four-point lead with 2:22 to go, but Carlton Bragg capped a game-ending 7-2 run by New Mexico with a pair of makes at the foul line with 49 ticks left and Shunn Buchanan's game-winning three-point try at the horn was off the mark as the Lobos exited the Pan Am Center with a 78-77 victory Thursday night.   Continue Reading This Post >>

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.

After taking a three-point edge at the 9:49 mark of the first half, the Aggies never looked back holding a lead until the final buzzer to defeat the Jaguars, 79-63.

After the victory at home head coach Chris Jans said, “The goal was to win the game and after our last outing we certainly weren’t very pleased.

NMSU Men's Basketball Loses At UTEP 65-50

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

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 >>

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

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. After scoring the first 16 points of the game, the Aggies never looked back en route to a decisive 92-46 win over the Mustangs at home.

Following the lopsided season-opening victory head coach Chris Jans said, “Obviously they were outmanned and we anticipated that as coaches, but we kept telling the guys to play against the game and play to get better. 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 >>
