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 >>
