ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — New Mexico used a balanced scoring attack and a dominating rebounding performance Wednesday night to defeat Idaho State 65-41.
A.J. Hardeman and Demetrius Walker scored nine points each for the Lobos (5-2) and Drew Gordon equaled a season-high with 13 rebounds and added eight points.
Melvin Morgan scored 23 for Idaho State (1-5), but no other Bengal had more than five points.
The Lobos outrebounded the Bengals 51-28, including a 22-9 on the offensive glass which led to a 26-8 advantage in second-chance points. That inside dominance also helped New Mexico outscore Idaho State 30-12 on points in the paint.
Although the Lobos went just 12 for 24 from the free-throw line, the Bengals were just 2 for 4.
New Mexico used an 11-0 run to go up 13-5, with Tony Snell collecting five of those points, as the Lobos held Idaho State scoreless for four minutes.
The Bengals responded with a 10-3 surge to regain the advantage at 17-16 as Morgan knocked down two 3-pointers to give the Bengals their final lead. Morgan finished 7 for 12 on 3-pointers, but his teammates went 0 for 10 from behind the arc.
