Jason Groves' latest on the NMSU team makeup

Here's Jason Groves, on top of NMSU basketball matters as usual, regarding the Aggie participants in tonight's Aggie contest.

Menzies said every player except freshman point guard Terrance Joyner will suit up for the Aggies tonight. Menzies hopes to have Joyner sooner than the semester break if he is cleared by the NCAA, but at the very least, Joyner will join the team after the first semester ends.

Menzies expects 7-foot center Abdoulaye N'doye to come to campus next semester, but unlike Rahman, Lumpkins and Gillenwater, N'doye will have the luxury of practicing with the team while he sits out. Menzies said N'doye is scheduled to take his SAT in Senegal this week.

Guard Makhtar Diop is also listed on the roster, but he is not able to practice with the team during his redshirt year.
