Last year: 15-19, 8-10 SWAC lost in SWAC championship game
Key player: 6-11 Jules Montgomery was a junior center last year, who was third on the team in scoring with 7.6 ppg and second with 6 rpg.
Something to watch: The Aggies play Prairie View for the first time since 2010. I don't have much interest in this game to be honest. My biggest interest is the fact that this is the last game before the toughest stretch on the NMSU schedule. Prairie View's top two scorers were seniors last year from a team that averaged 64 points per game. Prairie View got to the SWAC championship game and lost by one point to No. 1 seed Southern after knocking off the No. 3 and No. 2 seed to get there but they lost five seniors.
