Sunday: four game reports

Idaho put out the welcome mat for New Mexico State and the guests rode out to a 42-27 halftime lead. The Vandals closed the deficit to 60-53 with seven minutes remaining and at the final horn it was the Aggies 71 to 70 for the Moscow-ites. A foul on an inbounds pass with 2.7 second remaining proved to be the difference. Call it a dickens of a tale of two halfs.

Sim Bhullar and K.C. Ross-Miller each scored 16 points with Bandja Sy totaling 14 while Kyle Barone posted an 18/10 double-double and Connor Hill contributed 17 points.

Idaho shot 52% overall, New Mexico State 48%. The latter also committed just four turnovers.

Denver went on the road to Seatown and continued the Pioneer winning streak 64-51.  Coach Joe Scott's guys actually decided the game with a 43-29 first half. Chase Hallam led with 15 points and Chris Udofia totaled 13. UD went 12-27 from long distance -- Seattle 0-9. With 15 points, Clarence Treat was the sole Redhawk in double figures. In fact, Coach Cameron Dollar's crew, now 0-5 in the WAC, went only 9-20 at the foul line.

Louisiana Tech stayed undefeated in taking down host UTSA but it was mighty close at 73-71. That's probably little consolation for the 0-6 Roadrunners. Bulldog Kenyon MacNeail exploded for 34 points, going 9-15 on trey attempts. Roadrunner guard Kannon Burrage finished with 29 points as, minus Jeromie Hill, Coach Brooks Thompson's squad went with basically a four guard offense.  Jordan Sims totaled 16 points and Hyjii posted 14 for San Antone.

0-5 Texas State hosted Texas Arlington and it was the latter enjoying a 91-74 triumph powered by all five Maverick starters scoring in double figures: Karol Gruszecki (23, 7-10 on treys), Kevin Butler (15), Brandon Edwards (14, plus 13 rebounds), Jordan Reves (11) and Cameron Catlett (11). Joel Wright led the Bobcats with 24 points while Deonte' Jones contributed 21, including five treys.
