Live gamecast of NMSU vs. Boise State (NMSU 95, BSU 92)


Play-by-play action (well, mostly play-by-play) of the WAC's No. 2 New Mexico State University Aggies (18-9, 10-3 WAC) vs. the Boise State Broncos (13-15, 3-10 WAC).

The Aggies are coming off a 74-57 home win against Idaho Wednesday, Feb. 24. Hot shooting behind the arc and a strong performance by center Hamiduh Rahman and forward Wendell McKines led the Aggies to an easy win Wednesday. The Aggies are now the only remaining team in the hunt to win the regular season WAC title, a game and a half behind Utah State.

Boise State is coming off a 72-59 surprise win against the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs in Ruston, La -- their best win of the season. For Boise, forward Ike Okoye leads the team's scorers averaging 13.1 points and 8.3 boards per game. Forward Robert Arnold, guard La'Shard Anderson and guard Daequon Montreal are all averaging 10 points for the Broncos.

---Game start---
Note: A good turnout from fans, I would estimate about 8,000.

19:18: Hamiduh Rahman, Layup, NMSU 2, BSU 0

18:35: Robert Arnold, BSU, dunk, NMSU 2, BSU 2

18:00: Robert Arnold, BSU, three-pointer, NMSU 2, BSU 5

11:16: Paul Noonan, BSU, three-pointer, NMSU 20, BSU 16

10:30 Timeout

Note: The Aggies and Broncos are playing fast-paced ball. The style of play lends well to the Aggies' high-powered offense, who have several options on the breakaway for spot-up jumpers, layups or shots from behind the arc. Sloppy defensive play by the Aggies has also led to quick fast-break points for the Broncos, however. The Aggies started with a high-pressure man defense but have since let down a bit.

The crowd keeps getting bigger, about 9,000 now, I would say.

9:37: Jahmar Young, jumpshot, NMSU 22, BSU 16

9:12: Kelly Merker, shooting foul

9:12: Zach Mortiz, BSU, two missed free throws

3:30: Paul Noonan, BSU, three-pointer NMSU 34, BSU 34

3:15: Hernst Laroche, layup, NMSU 36, BSU 34

2:43: Timeout

Note: The Aggies are playing sloppy zone d. They are not getting back on their assignment on the fast break and BSU forward Paul Noonan has punished the ags with several three-pointers on the fast break. Most of the Broncos' points are coming off the fast break.


2:00: Hernst Laroche, three-pointer, NMSU 39, BSU 34

1:05: Jonathan Gibson, three-pointer, NMSU 42, BSU 36

0:45: Tyrone Watson, one of two free throws, NMSU 43, BSU 36

Note: Despite a frustrating early second half start, the Aggies are shooting lights-out in the past two minutes and have increased their lead to 11. JY and Gib hit back-to-back threes to cap the Aggie run.

12:13: Ike Okoye, BSU, two-pointer and the foul, NMSU 48, BSU 51

11:49: Timeout


Note: The Aggies are dominating on both ends of the floor. They are not making as many mistakes on the defensive end are not allowing Boise to play the effective transition game they had in the first half. The Aggies are shooting lights out, led by JY and Gibson.


11:32: Robert Arnold, BSU, layup, NMSU 68, BSU 53

11:07: Robert Arnold, BSU, three-pointer, NMSU 68, BSU 56

4:32: Foul, Troy Gillenwater

4:32: Daequon Montreal, two free throws, NMSU 85, BSU 75


Note: The Aggies are managing the clock better now but taking poor shots. BSU's Paul Noonan is relentless from beyond the arc. The Aggies are doing a poor job again of covering BSU's shooters during transition.


3:50: Paul Noonan, three-pointer, NMSU 85, BSU 78

3:16: Intentional foul, Anthony Thomas, BSU

3:16: Jahmar Young, two free throws, NMSU 87, BSU 78

1:59: La'Shard Anderson, two of two free throws, NMSU 89, BSU 82

1:45: Foul, Daequon Montreal

1:36: Foul, Daequon Montreal

1:36: Hernst Leroche, one of two free throws, NMSU 90, BSU 82

1:26: Robert Arnold, jumpshot w/ foul, NMSU 90, BSU 85

1:24: Jahmar Young, two of two free throws, NMSU 92, BSU 95

1:10: Daeqon Montreal, jumpshot, NMSU 92, BSU 87

1:05: Jahmar Young, two of two free throws, NMSU 94, BSU 87

1:00: Daeqon Monreal, three-pointer, NMSU 94, BSU 90

0:49: Robert Arnold, two of two free throws, NMSU 94, BSU 92

0:38: Timeout, NMSU


Note: Was not expecting this type of finish. BSU has been effective with their hack-an-Aggie strategy in the past two minutes, cutting the Aggies lead down to two. Some turnovers under the basket and sloppy play by the Aggies have led to BSU capitalizing off six points from Aggie turnovers.


0:21: Timeout NMSU

0:20: Turnover NMSU

0:13: Turnover BSU

0:10: Timeout BSU

0:10: Hernst Laroche, one of two from the free throw line, NMSU 95, BSU 92
