New Mexico State (13-8, 7-2 WAC) shot only 36.5 percent from the field, making 19 of 52 attempts, but was 12 for 18 from the free-throw line and out-rebounded the Pioneers 41-24.

Denver had similar luck from the field, making only 40.9 percent and was a dismal 3 for 18 from beyond the arc.

The Aggies led 29-22 at halftime and led by as many as 17 points with just over 4 minutes to go in the game.
