NMSU 2013-14 schedule: Nov. 23 Game 8 vs. Bethune Cookman

Last season: 14-20, 7-9 in the MEAC, lost in conference semis as an No. 8 seed.

Key returner(s): Daquan Brown is not a returner but he's a 6-10 post player that transferred from Hofstra. Brown will be eligible to play this season since he already graduated. He didn't put up big numbers at Hofstra. The school lost its top scorer and rebounder in Adrein Coleman, who tried to go pro after three years. The next four scorers on the roster were seniors last season. Guard Malik Jackson played in all 34 games and shot 29 percent from 3 point range. 5-9 point guard Ricky Johnson was sixth on the team in scoring last year with 7 ppg with 2.6 apg

Something to watch: This team upset top seeded Norfolk State in the conference tournament, but Bethune Cookman appears to be in rebuilding mode. There are few cupcakes on the Aggies non-conference schedule. Bethune Cookman may be the first. There are three freshmen, a sophomore, and a JC transfer on the current roster.
