-A A +A

By Richard Stevens

LAS VEGAS, Nev. — A statement game was tossed out Thursday in the Thomas & Mack Center by the two teams that made statements throughout the season.
The No. 2 seed University of New Mexico Lobos charged into the Mountain West Tournament semifinals with a 93-77 win over Fresno State, Thursday night.
Also Thursday, San Diego State, the MW regular season champion, mauled Utah State 73-39.
The Lobos advance to play Boise State, which beat Nevada 75-62. The Broncos are one of three teams to beat UNM in the regular season with their 71-70 win in Boise Feb. 12.
The Aztecs, meawhile, will try to knock off the home team, UNLV, a 71-67 winner over Wyoming.
The Thomas & Mack definitely will be rocking on Friday as the Rebels should draw a good crowd for their upset bid against the Aztecs. The venue was already was rocking Thursday night as Cameron Bairstow and Alex Kirk both scored 21 points to pace the quarterfinal win.
“Our two big guys are hard to guard, hard to play,” said Lobo head coach Craig Neal.  “We made a concerted effort to go inside tonight. I really didn’t do anything different. I usually don’t wave a magic wand. We were fortunate that Cam and Alex had good nights. We can play a lot of different ways.  We really didn’t change much.”
