Saturday's recap of last night's game plus tongiht's contests

Idaho challenged perennial Mountain West Conference power New Mexico in The Pit and got spanked 73-58 but it was 36-36 after twenty minutes. Kyle Barone posted 16 points plus six boards and sharpshooter Connor Hill led the Vandals with 20 (six of 12 from long distance). New Mexico shot 51% for the game to 41% for Don Verlin's crew. Idaho also shot but eight free throws.

New Mexico State proved to be rude hosts to Louisiana Lafayette as the Aggies sprinted out to a 41-18 halftime lead and won 79-57. It was Bandja Sy Night as the senior produced 16 points (6-8 shooting), five boards and four blocked shots. NMSU also won the battle of the boards 49-27 but did commit 25 turnovers. Play at the point remains muddled, owning too many of those TOs.

Jason Groves tweeted the contest. Jason also has a game report.


Still up in Anchorage, Texas State tangled with Loyola Marymount and fell 78-63. Backcourter Vonn Jones the Bobcats with 14 points and five assists while Corey Sterns enjoyed 10 points and seven rebounds.

Blue Zertuche/TexasHoops (a Rivals sub is required) recently offered this about a Texas Antonio signee: "Luke Wilshire 6-foot-5 SG Johnson -- Wilshire found his grove against Brennan Wednesday afternoon. He started looking like the shooter that everyone wanted to see in the summer. Wilshire shot the ball with confidence and range proving that he might have been overlooked throughout the July period, and a steal for UTSA. He carried his team as much as he could, adding assist and rebounds to his stat line. He has a big frame that he uses on the defensive side of the ball. Wilshire led his team with 25 points."
