Thursday night: Four game reports, well, actually three

In the El Gigante matchup tonight, New Mexico State welcomed Louisiana Tech to town. The Aggies earned a nine-point lead at the half and just kept going, winning 78-60. Daniel Mullings was at his apex, scoring 23 points alongside eight rebounds, four steals and three assists. Tyrone Watson finished with 12 points, 11 caroms and a trio assists. NMSU shot 55% overall (an amazing number against a tough defense), put LT at the foul line for just nine attempts, won the board battle 39-25 and held the Bulldogs to 40% shooting. Raheem Appleby paced the Ruston-ites with 13 points

A coach with a sense of humor -- JasonG tweeted this: "Marvin Menzies nearly gave me a heart attack to open Tuesday press conference. Said he would be taking UTEP job obviously was a joke"


It wasn't a good night for Lone Star State squads 

Denver rolled out the ol' Pioneer Welcome Wagon for Texas Arlington promptly going out to a 43-24 halftime lead and concluding with an 84-55 success. Forward Chris Uodfia enjoyed a team-leading 21 points with guard Brett Olson finishing with 18.

Utah State had Texas State coming to Logan and no hospitality was offered in a 34-15 after-the-initial-20-minutes lead. USU continued on and triumphed 77-61. The best news: no further Aggies were injured plus Spencer Butterfield returned and posted an unusual 10 point/20 rebound double-double in 32 minutes of play. he also passed for seven assists. Jarred Shaw, who did not start, posted a 15 point/10 rebound double-double of his own and also check out unsung Ben Clifford's numbers: 13 points, six boards, four assists and four blocked shots. Backcourter Vonn Jones paced the Bobcats with 19 points and no other Texas Stater reached double figures.

San Jose State University got down with visiting Texas San Antonio, or at least that was the plan. But a leaky roof made conditions unplayable and a cancellation occurred.
