FORT COLLINS, CO - Senior guard Irma Kmitaite-Smith and freshman guard Madison Spence both hit four 3-pointers and senior forward Sherell Neal scored a season-high 22 points and had 11 rebounds in a 77-67 victory at Colorado State Saturday, Dec. 29, in Moby Arena.
The Aggies hit nine 3-pointers in all during the game against the Ram’s zone defense, the most since Jan. 21, 2006 when NMSU made 11 three’s against Louisiana Tech.
