UNM

Fred Peete makes an appearance. Former Aggie guard Fred Peete is in attendance tonight. Peete is playing with the Deutsche Bank Skyliners in Germany. I believe the team is off until Jan. 3


Starters
NMSU
Young
McKines
Rahman
Laroche
Gibson

UNM
Martinez
Danridge
Farris
Gary
McDonald

UNM 15, NMSU 6 11:54
The Aggies went nearly four minutes without scoring and when Rahman threw down a dunk the Lobos responded with a Martinez jumper and a Danridge reverse off a turnover

UNM 20, NMSU 14 7:32
The Aggies are being deliberate offensively, waiting until about 10 on the shot clock before doing anything. Laroche hit a 3 from the top of the key to make it a five point game. The aggies have one on the shot clock out of media timeout

UNM 25, NMSU 20 3:44
Young has 11 on 4 of 8 shooting, knocking down a pair of 3s against UNM's zone. The Lobos came out of the zone. UNM's Martinez is finding some soft spots in the zone and has 10 points, mostly bunnies and follows.

UNM 31, NMSU 25 HALF
The Aggies can win this game if they tighten up a little on defense but i think this is the best effort i have sen them play on that end so far.

UNM 43, NMSU 37 14:31
The teams swapped 7-0 runns to open the second half.

UNM 46, NMSU 41 11:59
J.Y. at the line to shoot 3 out of the media. The Lobos are starting to pull away on the glass, grabbing 10 offensive rebounds and outrebounding nmsu 26-15

UNM 58, NMSU 49 7:29
The Aggies are struggling to find the Lobos shooters. The 3 is keeping the Aggies at bay everytime they make a run. UNM has hit 6 3s in the second half


FINAL UNM 76, NMSU 62

Well, the Aggies blew another rivalry game against the wimpy Lobos. Let's hear all the excuses from the Menzies supporters. Wow, 5-6 record now. Menzies is doing such a better job than Theus....lol...yeah right. What a joke.

Anyone hear the lobos fans saying "You need Reggie," maybe we dont give them enough credit up north.

I thought that moving the 3-pt line out 9 more inches would eliminate the old "live by the three, die by the three" story line. But we jacked them up with UTEP (Culpepper shot horrible comapred to last year) and we jacked them up in LoBlos Rnd.1.
Did you see the Lobos flashing open in the post, right in our zone?? Go inside Aggies, slash and kick out. Very little motion in the offense. Too much (guys caught out of position) in the zone D.
