Marvin Menzies on opener

New Mexico State coach Marvin Menzies talks a little about the Aggies opener on Friday at Louisiana-Lafayette. The Aggies have a good chance to open 2-0 for the first time in his three years here and the first time since 2004 before the schedule really takes off with Arizona, UMass, USC, UTEP twice and UNM twice in the next month. For the first time since I can remember, the Aggies open the season without the offcourt distractions they've had in the past. Lafayette was picked to finish fourth in the Sun-Belt West after going 13-17 and 10-8 in league last year.

Gillenwater comment in your print article says it all. Solid guard play along with bigs playing within themselves is the univeral formula for meeting potential. Shows Menzies and his staff (staff has gained size this year, too) coached Troy up and he's seen the light. Troy knows Aggies could be beat tonight but applying the same formula have a better than even chance of getting a road win out of the gate. Tuning in at 6.
