New Mexico State vs New Mexico

New Mexico St. 62, New Mexico 53

  •  

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Forward Wendell McKines scored 14 points and grabbed nine rebounds Wednesday night, helping New Mexico State end a seven-game losing streak to upstate rival New Mexico 62-53.

Sy Bandja scored 12 points off the bench for the Aggies (2-0).

Small forward Tony Snell scored 18 points for the Lobos (1-1). But their top players, Drew Gordon and Kendall Williams, combined to go 0-for-13 from the field. As a team, the Lobos made just four baskets in the second half.

New Mexico State gained control of the game midway through the second half when the Lobos' Demetrius Walker was called for an intentional foul on a breakaway by Hamidu Rahman.

The Aggies turned that into a four-point possession that sparked an 8-0 run, turning a 45-42 deficit into a 50-45 lead. New Mexico State never trailed again.
