Versus Idaho

8-6 NMS 1437 The student section has a lot of energy on Tough Enough to Wear Pink night. Another lackluster display by the rest of the city. Hamidu has a couple of blocks as the Vandals are attacking the basket. the Aggies have yet to play zone so we'll see if that continues. Both teams start 3 of 10 from the field

12-11 NMS 11:47 Well I found out why NMSU started in man. Coming out of the timeout, Hopson hit a 3 and then found Watson in transition for a three point lead, but a Gillenwater follow and Gibson jumper put the Aggies back up by 1. Neither team has found the range yet though..most scoring has come in transition.

23-19 NMS 7:24 The good news is that the Aggies have hit three 3s after starting 0 for 4. Idaho hit has hit two though to keep it close

32-21 NMS 3:07 Another 3 from Gordo, one from Gibson and one from Young put the Aggies up by their biggest margin, currently on a 14-5 run over the last 4 minutes

41-23 NMS Halftime The Aggies finish the first half shooting 7 of 14 from long range. They made all seven triples in the final 11:29 of the half, capped on a McKines 3 as time expired.

57-36 NMS 14:00 The Aggies picked up where they left off, shooting 5 of 7 from the field and 4 of 5 from long range. The most made 3s this season were 14 against San Jose State

70-50 NMS 3;31 It's good to see the Aggies beating up on the lower teams in the WAC, making no doubt they are better than Hawaii and Idaho. I expect the same against Boise State

Nice win for the Aggies. They dominated as they should. Rahman was a load, and would have even been more of a terror had he caught some of those great passes by the Aggie guards.

Fun game.
