Lobos survive a scare vs. Bulldogs

-A A +A
By Associated Press

 FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — With his team trailing by double digits at halftime, New Mexico coach Steve Alford could have tried to make some major adjustments.
Instead, he told the Lobos to play the way they usually do.
Kendall Williams scored 13 points, capped by an emphatic dunk just before the final buzzer, and No. 19 New Mexico overcame an 11-point halftime deficit to defeat Fresno State’s Bulldogs 54-48 on Wednesday night.
“It was just our guys,” Alford said. “They got the job done. When you’re down 11 at the half on the road and then play the way we played in the second half, it was outstanding. These guys, they just find a way. You shoot 37 percent and still get a road win.”
Alex Kirk had 10 points, nine rebounds and six blocks for the Lobos (21-4, 8-2 Mountain West Conference). Tony Snell also scored 10, and his 18-foot leaner with 20 seconds left sealed the victory as New Mexico remained a half-game ahead of second-place Colorado State in the conference standings.
Kevin Olekaibe led Fresno State (8-15, 2-8) with 11 points, while Kevin Foster had 10 points and 10 rebounds.
 Foster scored all his points in the first half.
The Bulldogs scored only three points, on Olekaibe’s 3-pointer, in the final 10:08.
