Sorry about the day off Sunday. Had to watch the Broncos try to advance.
I did write this story about how dominant NMSU has been through the first three WAC games, winning games by 18 per game and they haven't been that close.
3-point defense: Idaho was 4-14 (28.6 percent) from 3-point range. All four of their triples came from two players, Connor Hill, who was 2-5 and Mike Scott who was 2-2, although he was just 3-10 from the field. NMSU meanwhile, continued the hot hand from 3-point range, shooting 7-13 (53.8 percent) in the first half and 10-23 (43.5 percent) for the game. Personally, 23 3-point attempts seems a bit much for this team, but I honestly can't remember a bad shot being taken.
Stephen Madison: Madison was the Vandals most versatile offensive player and he finished 3-11 for 9 points and four rebounds and was 0-2 from 3-point range. Daniel Mullings defended him at times, but Matej Buovac came in off the bench and did a nice job on him as well. Buovac should be able to defend most of the powerforwards in the WAC.
Limit turnovers: NMSU had 12 turnovers on Saturday, not a bad number, just three more than Thursday. What I didn't expect was how generous Idaho would be with the ball. NMSU scored 30 points off 17 Idaho turnovers.
