The NMSU Aggies beat Idaho on the basketball court tonight.
I don't know if it was an impressive win or not but I have been saying that the team needs to win games, period. They did that tonight.
The victory does not change my perception of the team. If they did not beat the Vandals here, it would have been a major disappointment. The Aggies are going to battle for the three seed in the WAC. They could finish anywhere between three and five.
The bottom line is that the game could have gone either way. The Vandals are much improved and took a late lead in the fourth quarter. Idaho went up five with 3:25 left and I thought they would win. NMSU could have easily gone in the tank but battled back and won.
These two teams meet a week from Saturday in Moscow. It should be another battle. Idaho is a lot better than in the past and the Aggies continue to underachieve. For one night at least, they got the win.
