NMSU holds off UMKC, 74-71

LAS CRUCES, New Mexico -- Despite the setbacks they encountered earlier in the season, the NMSU Aggies keep finding ways to win.

Saturday afternoon at the Pan American Center, the Aggies added another win to the win column after defeating the University of Missouri Kansas City, 74-71.

Things looked well in hand for the Aggies after Terrell Brown culminated a 7-of-11 night from the field by splashing a wide-open three-pointer which pushed the home team's lead to 69-57 with 2:44 to go in the game.

But the Roos connected on three of their 13 three-pointers in the last 2:27 to make things much more interesting than anyone in the Aggies' corner wanted. 

New Mexico State never fell behind for the second-straight game and Johnny McCants made sure of that by starting the Aggies' 8-2 run out of the gates with a three-pointer from the near wing. 

NMSU's record improves to 12-6, and now they'll hit the road for three straight WAC games away from home.

 New Mexico State's first stop during that stretch is Orem, Utah, for a Thursday night battle at Utah Valley.

Tip-off has been slated for 7:00 p.m.
