Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

HONOLULU, HI - Just like a battle between two heavy weights, the New Mexico State men’s basketball team and USC went toe-to-toe Monday evening at the Stan Sheriff Center in the Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic championship game with the Aggies falling in the final seconds of play to the Trojans 77-72.

After Zach Lofton drilled his sixth 3-pointer of the game, New Mexico State held on to its two-possession lead for the most of latter portion of the second-half.

Fast-forward to 2:05 remaining in the game when Eli Chuha pulled down an AJ Harris missed shot for the put-back to give NM State the 72-68 lead. A put-back and by USC’s Jordan McLaughlin and lay-in from Jonah Mathews on the next two possessions tied things up at 72-72 with 1:04 left to play.  Continue Reading This Post >>

NMSU Men's Basketball Upsets No. 6/7 Miami, Advances To Diamond Head Classic Championship Game

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

HONOLULU, HI - The “cardiac kids” was what New Mexico State head men’s basketball coach said his team was becoming last night in the postgame interviews. That squad delivered once again Saturday night in the semifinal game of the Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic with the 63-54 upset of No. 6/7 Miami at the Stan Sheriff Center, handing the Hurricanes their first loss of the year.

The win gave NM State its first victory over a top-10 team since the heroic Keith Hill jumper that gave the Aggies the 83-82 win at home over seventh-ranked UNLV led by the great Jerry Tarkanian. That Aggie team on Jan. 8, 1990, was coach by Neil McCarthy.

It was also NM State’s first win against an Atlantic Coast Conference team since Lou Henson’s 1997-98 team took down Virginia in the 34th Rainbow Classic in Honolulu on Dec. 30, 1997.  Continue Reading This Post >>

HONOLULU, HI - New Mexico State men’s basketball senior Jemerrio Jones made another huge play down the stretch, this time a game-winner with eight seconds left to play on a put-back to give NM State the 69-68 victory over Davidson in the Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic opener Friday night at the Stan Sheriff Center.

Down seven with 7:14 left to play, the Aggies (10-2) clawed their way back and found a way to win thanks to gritty play by Keyon Jones, Eli Chuha and J. Jones. The three combined to score 12 of the last 16 points for NM State in the same time frame.

“I am proud of our group of young men,” Aggie head coach Chris Jans said. “They have become somewhat of the cardiac kids where the last 3 games on the road we have won, we have come from behind."  Continue Reading This Post >>

LONG BEACH, CA - New Mexico State women's basketball was defeated by Northeastern in a close game at the Walter Pyramid on Wednesday. The Aggies fell to the Huskies 65-64 to open the Long Beach Classic.
