Joel Wright — Wright was 3-18 the last time these teams played. Renaldo Dixon/Bandja Sy could each guard Wright, but look for Remi Barry to get some minutes tonight against Wright. Wright came off a 32 point game where he got to the foul line 16 times against Denver. He's a versatile four but he didn't attempt a 3 against Denver, getting into the paint.
Run — This is Texas State's third game in as many days. NMSU won't press like they did against Idaho because Texas State guards are better, but pushing the tempo and pounding the ball inside with Bhullar could help wear down the Bobcats and their best big man Matt Staff, who had 20 and 10 last game against the Aggies.
Fast start — The key to Texas State's three game win streak is a fast start. They led 10-0 against Denver on Thursday. NMSU needs to hold them to one shot and grind it out. The Aggies outrebounded Texas State by nine in San Marcos.
Texas State is a solid team, but I think the Aggies win 74-63 for two reason — NMSU matches up very well with Texas State and NMSU is too close to the final to come out and let the Bobcats hang around.
