Coach Cameron Dollar tweeted: "Anytime a team is tougher than you, in my opinion it's the coaches fault. I will take it and get better"


It's rare when teams like New Mexico State and Bucknell face off and the former will probably want to make sure it remains that way after falling 62-49. The Aggies shot 14-48 for the game as Daniel Mullings led with 22 points.
