  • Lobos come out flat as Aggies win 3-1
    LAS CRUCES — For sure, you have to give the Aggie their dues. After all, New Mexico State beat the Lobos three games out of four and used solid net work to grab a 3-1 win over New Mexico Tuesday night in the Pan American Center. But Lobo Coach Jeff Nelson also blamed another team for UNM’s loss to Aggies. He blamed the Lobos. “We came out with no intensity, really flat,” said Nelson of the 25-22, 25-18, 22-25, 25-17 loss to the Aggies in front of a crowd of 1,669. “They’re just not bringing it. They (the Aggies) outworked us. I think they wanted it a lot more than we did.”
