One stat that has been largely overlooked from last night's Nevada game was the battle on the boards. Nevada outrebounded NMSU 40-35. That hasn't happened much to the Aggies this year who have been a very strong rebounding team.
I'm not overlooking the fact that the team gave up 98 points but getting out-boarded certainly plays a factor as well. It goes to show that Nevada was probably the more physical team and the aggressor most of the evening.
The Aggies should out-board Fresno tonight. Again, I expect an NMSU win. But that really only goes so far. The last time I said win, they went to Nevada.
