  • New Mexico holds off Long Beach State 75-68

    PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The expectation back in New Mexico is that this will finally be the year the Lobos get past the first weekend of the NCAA tournament.

    They barely got out of the second round Thursday.

    Kendall Williams scored 14 of his 16 points in the second half and bottled up Long Beach State star Casper Ware defensively as fifth-seeded New Mexico held off the 49ers for a 75-68 win in the West Regional.

    Drew Gordon added 18 points and 13 rebounds, but New Mexico's punishing forward was mostly a complement to Williams in the second half. The sophomore went 6 of 11 from the field, hitting a pair of important 3-pointers. The Lobos (28-6) then made their free throws in the final minute to close it out.
