NMSU is playing great offensive basketball right now and Jonathan Gibson is having an exceptional senior season.
I think if I had to name a MVP, i would go with either Gibson or McKines. The Aggies turnaround coincides with Wendell's return so you can't take that for granted. But Gibson was the only guard who was consistently knocking down shots all season while JY, Gordo and Hernst found their stroke.
There was a three minute stretch where Gibson and Young combined to hit five 3s. I don't think you see that too often. The Aggies' 32 3-point attempts were four off a school record. Gibson's 6 makes from 3 were three off Eric Channing and Terry Bennett's mark of nine. Gibson's 14 attempts from deep was one off Brad Bestor and Jeff McCool's record 15.
But I would say that few of them were bad shots. It appears this is what the Aggies are going to be this year and as long as they are falling, you can't argue I don't think. Fresno State has weapons but the Bulldogs showed that they can't hang with the Aggies pace, turning the ball over eight times in the second half while nmsu had four in the second half.
Nice games by Hamidu Rahman (9 and 7) and Hernst Laroche (seven and 10 assists) and Abdoulaye N'doye played 12 solid minutes.
I'll have more tomorrow.
