New Mexico State survives scare from Seattle 70-68


  •  

LAS VEGAS (AP) Sim Bhullar scored 24 points as second-seeded New Mexico State survived a last-second scare from No. 7 Seattle, winning 70-68 in a Western Athletic Conference quarterfinal Thursday.

The Aggies (24-9) face sixth-seeded Cal State-Bakersfield (13-18) Friday in the semifinals.

New Mexico State trailed by six twice after intermission, but a 17-4 run - fueled by a 3-pointer and layup by DK Eldridge - helped the Aggies lead by nine with 3:52 after another 3-pointer by Eldridge (19 points).

The Redhawks didn't bow, as a 15-7 run, punctuated by Isiah Umipig's trey with 15 seconds to play, cut the deficit to one.

Eldridge's pair of free throws bumped it back to three. After a foul sent D'Vonne Pickett to the line, he made one and missed. Jack Crook got the rebound but his last-second shot missed the mark.

Seattle (13-17) led 33-31 at half and was led by Umipig with 25.
