The NMSU Aggie men's basketball team is hittin California this weekend for a two-game road trip.
Last year the team won at both of these venues.
NMSU came alive in the 2nd half in their win last year in Fresno.
The game at San Jose was a wild one, with Jonathan Gibson saving the day after the Aggies almost gave the game away.
Bottom line is that it's a new year with much different circumstances and expectations. Last season, it was expected that NMSU won against these teams, home, away, on another planet. This year, the Aggies haven't won yet on the road and enter WAC play with some question marks. Aside from their poor road mark, NMSU has been up and down and lost a tough game their last time out vs. rival New Mexico.
Both Fresno and San Jose are beatable. Fresno State is in a major transitional period and the Spartans have been playing well lately, but haven't beaten anybody of any significance.
It's the start of WAC play. Menzies has been talking all season about how the team has been gearing up for league competition. It would be nice to see them go on the road and take a game or two on the trip. I think this team needs at least a split to stay competitive the WAC standings.
