BOISE, Idaho (AP) — New Mexico guard Hugh Greenwood was not about to let poor health get in the way of an important conference matchup with upstart Boise State.
Lobos coach Steve Alford said Greenwood was throwing up early Wednesday and feeling so bad in the hours before the game he sat out the shootaround, walkthrough and dinner with his teammates.
None of that mattered down the stretch. Greenwood sent the game into overtime when he drove a wide open lane for a layup with 54 seconds left in regulation, then sank a pair of key shots in overtime to lead No. 19 New Mexico (61-3, 3-0 Mountain West Conference) to a 79-74 victory over Boise State Wednesday night.
"We were just trying to get him healthy . just to get him ready and having a chance was amazing," Alford said of Greenwood, who finished with 15 points. "I think our team feeds off that kind of toughness."
The Lobos did, beating a scrappy Boise State team in a hostile environment to win their third straight game and despite 27 points by the Broncos' Derrick Marks.
