Aggies seeking payback in 2nd game of their series with Lobos

-A A +A

ALBUQUERQUE — They’re big.
Nothing has changed about the New Mexico State University Aggie men’s basketball team’s core.
They still have 7-foot-5 center Sim Bhullar and he has a nice supporting row of Aggie bigs, including 6-10 Tshilidzi Nephawe and 6-10 Renaldo Dixon.
The Lobos cut down those trees in Las Cruces. Can they repeat the performance in The Pit and get the sweep tonight?
“They have a really good team,” said Lobo head coach Craig Neal. “I think they are going to come in here and expect to win.”
It’s a difficult thing to step into The Pit and leave with a victory. The Aggies probably are good enough to do that, but they have to change the way they played in Las Cruces earlier this month in a 79-70 University of New Mexico win.
NMSU head coach Marvin Menzies was not happy with his Aggies’ performance in that loss. Simply put: there wasn’t enough fire for a NMSU team defending its home turf against its in-state rival.
Tonight, the Aggies have to change a lot of things. They also have to figure out how to take one of the Lobos’ big three out of the scoring column in a big way, although they did it in Las Cruces and still lost.
