LAS VEGAS (AP) Freshman Cullen Neal scored a career high 24 points, including six 3-pointers to lead New Mexico past Marquette 75-68 at the MGM Grand Showcase benefiting Coaches vs. Cancer on Saturday night.

Jake Thomas led Marquette (7-5) with 17 points, converting four 3-pointers. Jamil Wilson added 15 points, while Todd Mayo had 10.

New Mexico outscored Marquette in the second half, 45-31.

After trailing 37-30 at halftime and later by nine, the Lobos hit 8 of their first 12 second-half shots to rally for a 53-47 advantage with 11:53 to go. The Golden Eagles scored the next nine points to lead by three with 9:08 remaining.
