The New Mexico Lobos(25-3, 11-2) extended their streak to 12 games with a hard fought 72-66 win over Colorado State(15-11, 6-7).  Dairese Gary and Adam Nigon tied for the game high with 23 points a piece.  This game was tight the whole way as the biggest lead by the Lobos was 6 and CSU had a 7 point lead in the 1st half.  The shooting was pretty even with UNM at 36.8% and CSU at 38.5%.  The Lobos had a critical run to start the 2nd half turning a 3 point deficit into a 6 point lead before the Rams got back into the game.  The Rams stagnant offense late in the game matched with the Lobos defense was the end of the Rams upset bid. The biggest stat would be the Lobos 17 offensive rebounds, 12 of which came in the second half.  The Lobos out rebounded the Rams 41 - 29.

Darington Hobson had a double double with 15 points and 10 boards.  Roman Martinez hit 4 threes on his way to 17 points and 12 rebounds.  Dairese Gary was once again a stud and controlled the game the last few minutes.

Andy Ogide and Dorian Green both hit double figures in points with 12 and 11 respectively.
