RE: #2 New Mexico State clashes agaisnt #1 Cal St Bakersfield
I thought the key to the game was actually in the first half with the Aggies struggling to even get shots, they were still getting attempts inside and drawing fouls on Bakersfield. Eli Chuha was especially effective. NMSU got some points at least, and by halftime three of Bakersfield front court had two fouls. And two of them picked up foul #3 within the first 3 minutes of the second half. And they both eventually fouled out.

The announcers completely missed that aspect of the game. Never mentioned Bakersfield's mounting fouls problems until after two had fouled out. I think it made a huge difference in the second half though. The subs weren't as good as the starters, and the starters had to play more cautiously. Plus I agree Bakersfield couldn't keep their first half pace going the whole game.

Not sure that the 4 OT game had that much impact.

Well, the Aggies will be facing Baylor in Tulsa. That will be a tough matchup for NMSU.
