What a strange game it was for the New Mexico State Aggies and the San Jose State Spartans on Thursday night.
NMSU was up 14 twice, San Jose State came back and took a five point lead with 5:00 left and NMSU came back and won 89-81.
The Aggies didn't give up down five late and with SJSU having all the momentum. NMSU quickly retook the lead when it seemed like they were going in the other direction.
The Spartans struggled with some mind-numbing turnovers late. It seemed like for a three-minute stretch, with things in the balance, that they gave up the ball every time down court. They went from playing well to playing awful in the final 5 minutes of action.
Jahmar Young had 32 points and made some big shots.
Jonathan Gibson made some big shots down the stretch.
Wendell McKines played well as did Troy Gillenwater.
The Aggies were outrebounded by 13 (40-27) while SJSU committed 21 turnovers.
NMSU will be back in action on Saturday against Hawaii at the Pan Am.
