Aggies earn big WAC win over Bakersfield
The New Mexico State University Aggie men’s basketball team came back from a late deficit to knock off the Cal State Bakersfield Roadrunners.
Daniel Mullings had four critical points in the final 48 seconds of the game as the Aggies topped the Roadrunners 89-86 at the Pan American Center in Las Cruces.
Mullings, who won his third WAC Player of the Week honors after scoring a career-high 32 points against Texas Pan-American last weekend, finished with 19 points Thursday night.
NMSU (16-7 overall, 5-2 in the WAC) went to the foul line 44 times against Bakersfield and shot better than 53 percent from the floor. Those were numbers NMSU needed as it turned the ball over 14 times Thursday, which translated to 24 points on the other end for the Roadrunners (8-13, 1-6).
Sim Bhullar, who has missed all six of NMSU’s WAC games up to this point with a foot injury, finished with 13 points for the Aggies, who needed the win over Bakersfield to keep pace with undefeated Utah Valley near the top of the WAC standings.
