I think the Aggies are going to win tonight and I think they will win fairly easily considering the circumstances.
NMSU beats Nevada 80-70. Jonathan Gibson goes off for 20-plus, Hawkins has a solid all-around effort and Mr. Pope comes to the party. I say 15 and 10 for Herb to go along with some assists as he shows off his ability in the biggest game of the year.
We'll save Saturday game talk for later but I think the Fresno game will be harder than many anticipate. The second of a road trip is always tough, particularly when the first one gets most of the hype. The Bulldogs are dangerous though and have one of the league's best players, in point guard/scorer Kevin Bell.
