View the 2008/2009 Women's Basketball Schedule

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - New Mexico State women's basketball head coach Darin Spence announced the release of the 2008-09 schedule on Monday, July 21. The schedule is highlighted by 14 regular season home games, a spot in the Maggie Dixon Classic in San Diego, Calif. and a road game against perennial Big 12 power Kansas.

The 30 scheduled regular season games tie for the third most in program history and the most since the 1990-91 season when NMSU played in 31 regular season games.

After setting a program record for the most home wins in a season a year ago with 16, the Aggies hope to use their 14 home games to their advantage once again. NMSU went over the 300 win mark in its own Pan American Center last year and are 313-137 (.696) all-time in the Pan Am.  Continue Reading This Post >>

Several bonuses are available for Spence that would reward him for winning the WAC regular season title, winning the WAC Tournament, having a good APR standing, a good team GPA and if the Aggies make the NCAA Tournament.  Continue Reading This Post >>

Role Reversal: Aggies Ready To Play As A Top Seed

Written by: Jason Groves/Sun-News Reporter

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The view is different from the top.

After falling short as a Cinderella team the last two conference tournaments, the New Mexico State University women's basketball team is taking a different approach to the Western Athletic Conference Tournament this year. Hopefully, this route will result in the Aggies' first appearance in the NCAA Tournament since 1987-88.

The Aggies have never won a tournament championship and are attempting a run at their first conference title since the 1994-95 Sun Belt championship.

"The seniors have been to two championship games already so they know how to get there and we just have to keep building off that and hopefully finish it," Aggies freshman guard Madison Spence said.  Continue Reading This Post >>
