Aggie Women's Basketball Team Loses Heartbreaker On The Road To Kent State, 84-82

Madison Spence dropped 30 points, grabbed five rebounds, dished out seven assists and had one steal but it wasn't enough as the Aggies dropped their third game in a row, second on the road on Sunday afternoon. The Aggies started the game out strong building an eight point lead at 22-14 midway through the first half but the Golden Flashes would gradually chip away at the lead over the final 10 minutes of the first half and took their first lead, 43-40 with 1:01 remaining in the first half. That's how the two teams went into halftime. Madison Spence had 19 points at the break to lead the Aggies.

The second half saw Kent State jump out and build a 61-49 lead with 12:45 remaining in the game. The Aggies trailed 70-59 with 8:30 remaining to play in the game. Over the next 3:15 of the game the Aggies went on an 11-2 run to draw to within two points at 72-70 with 5:15 left to play. Kent State would push the lead back out to seven at 78-71 with 3:30 remaining in the game. The Aggies made one final push and took an 82-81 lead with 54 seconds left in the game on a wide open layup by freshman Kelsie Rozendaal. The Golden Flashes would regain the lead at 84-82 after three free throws on two consecutive trips by the Golden Flashes and with 8 seconds left in the game the Aggies had one final chance to tie or win the game. The ball was in the hands of Madison Spence but she wasn't able to get a shot off and the comeback bid fell just short.  Continue Reading This Post >>

Aggie Women's Basketball Falls 54-40 At UTEP

Written By: NMSU Athletic Dept.

EL PASO, TX - The New Mexico State women’s basketball team lost a intense, tight game at I-10 rival UTEP Thursday, 54-50, in the Don Haskins Center. The loss pushes the Aggies’ record back to 1-2 and they have now lost seven straight to the Miners.

The Aggies held a 45-42 lead with 3:21 to play, but two buckets apiece from Briana Green and Deitra Caldwell brought the Miners (1-2) back for the victory. NMSU only made 5-of-10 free-throw attempts in the second half, which combining that with the fact that the Aggies only shot 32.7 percent cost them the game.

All but nine of the Aggies’ 50 points came from senior guard Tyshae Walton and sophomores Danisha Corbett and Madison Spence. Corbett had a team-high 16 points, followed by Spence’s 15 and Walton’s 10.

Head coach Darin Spence said that he was very pleased with how his team battled in the game.  Continue Reading This Post >>
