NMSU isn't a good basketball. Just sad to lose tonight. A game they should have won, but poor shooting from 3, stupid turnovers, and can't hit a free throw to save their lives. An embarrassing showing tonight by NMSU. They better pick it up or this team is about to lose a bunch of games.

Lofton is in a slump and it is killing our offense. He has shot 5 for 23 in his last three games (21.7%). Others have stepped up but they are not consistent enough from night to night to absorb Lofton's shooting drought.

Wow. Talked lots of smack about GCU losing at home and we did the same exact thing to the same team. Nmsu basketball team acting like they played football Saturday night. 12-20 from free throw line, soft interior defense and turnovers killed us. Seattle licking their chops right now.

I thought Harris was going to fill that void after his utep performance, but he is back to normalcy. 03-zzz

AJ Harris is only a sophomore and has never been known to be a deadeye perimeter shooter. I think over time AJ Harris will prove to be an exceptional point guard but our offense should never rely on him to be our primary scorer. Sidy has stepped up recently but he shoots the ball so flat (little arc) that Aggie fans should not count on him fill the nets from the perimeter every night. Jans needs to work with Sidy to get him to put more arc on his shot. I was hopeful Wayne Stewart would give NMSU another scoring option but he has yet to see the court. He might not be as good as his JC hype? Or, he might still be injured? If he sits out any longer, it might be in NMSU's best interest just to medical redshirt Stewart.

Last night's game was an eye opener, and not the good kind. Wac teams are proving to be very inconsistent. I would say up to this point Seattle and Utah Valley are playing way better. GCU and NMSU victories are all vs. bad or cupcake teams. If you can't beat San Diego at home. You're in trouble.

UTRGV beats UC Irvine by 14 in Texas. vaqueros down by 10+ early, but came back to win by 14.

Great night for NMSU, UTRGV, & CSUB. GCU did what we were supposed to do against a bad Grambling St team, but I will take the positive signs of life after looking bad and worse over the last 3 games. First true road game for the Lopes at Boise St this week. Would be a good W to bring home.

Normally don't cheer for GCU, but show them that the WAC is much better than the MWC!
