Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

CHICAGO, IL - The New Mexico State women’s basketball team concluded its regular-season schedule by defeating Chicago State, 62-54, on Saturday afternoon inside the Jones Convocation Center.

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - For the first time in 20 years the New Mexico State women’s basketball team stands alone atop a conference as the Aggies won the outright Western Athletic Conference regular-season championship on Saturday after handling Texas-Pan American, 80-60, in front of a raucous Pan American crowd.

Written By: NM Stata Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - For the first time in 20 years the New Mexico State women’s basketball team celebrated a conference championship as the Aggies defeated Grand Canyon, 61-60, in thrilling fashion on Saturday to claim at least a share of the Western Athletic Conference regular-season crown.

NM State (18-7, 11-1 WAC) is two games up on Bakersfield with two games remaining in the regular season, meaning an Aggie win or a Roadrunner loss over the last two games and NM State will be the outright WAC champion.

The Aggies picked up their 11th-straight win at home and have won 18 of their last 20 games en route to winning their first WAC championship in the 10 years as part of the conference. But it wasn’t easy as Grand Canyon (11-13, 5-6 WAC) led for most of the second half and took a one-point lead with 10.5 seconds left in the game.  Continue Reading This Post >>

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The New Mexico State women’s basketball team got back on the winning track after defeating Utah Valley, 67-62, on Thursday night inside the Pan American Center to inch closer to its first regular-season conference championship in 20 years.

And after trailing for practically the entire first 16 minutes of the final frame, it took an 11-2 NM State run over the final four minutes of the game to finally put the home squad over the hump as the Aggies won for the 17th time in 19 games. The Aggies finished the game scoring 20 of the final 28 points.  Continue Reading This Post >>

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

SEATTLE, WA - It was a sweet homecoming for Aggie junior guard Sasha Weber who returned to her native Washington state on Thursday night and helped the New Mexico State women’s basketball team to its 12-consecutive win, a 76-69 victory over Seattle U inside the Connolly Center.

Weber, who grew up about 40 minutes away from Seattle in Lacey, Wash., marked her 1,000th-career point as an Aggie after sinking her only 3-pointer of the night with 8:26 left in the game. She becomes only the 20th player in program history to reach 1,000 points. Weber finished with 14 points and now has 1,004 points in her career.

“We are all very proud of Sasha,” Aggie head coach Mark Trakh said. “She is a great student, person and basketball player. She will go down as one of the all-time great NM State players and she still has a long way to go to add to her impressive stats.”  Continue Reading This Post >>

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The New Mexico State women’s basketball team remains perfect in Western Athletic Conference play after its ninth-straight win in front of the home crowd, a 78-59 victory over Missouri-Kansas City on Saturday afternoon inside the Pan American Center.
