Lobos nip Fresno State

The No. 19 New Mexico men’s basketball team overcame an 11-point deficit in the first half on Wednesday night and captured a 54-48 road victory at Fresno State.

The Lobos, down 31-20 at halftime, outscored the Bulldogs 21-9 over the first nine minutes of the second half. From that point, the game remained tight. Junior forward Cameron Bairstow’s basket with 1:24 left gave UNM a 49-48 lead, putting the Lobos ahead for the rest of the game.

UNM (21-4, 9-2 MWC) bounced back from Saturday’s 64-55 loss against UNLV. The Lobos have not lost back-to-back games this season.

Junior guard Kendall Williams, sophomore center Alex Kirk and junior guard Tony Snell scored 10 points each for UNM. Fresno State junior guard Kevin Olekabie netted a game-high 11 points.
