Utah State's run in Mountain West tourney ends in semifinals

Utah State (17-17) went without a field goal for more than eight minutes and was scoreless for almost seven as New Mexico used a 24-2 run to take a 14-point lead late in the first half. His fellow sophomore star guard Sam Merrill, who scored 33 vs. UNM in Dreamstyle Arena on February 14, scored 17 points, but was held to 3-of-8 shooting from the 3-point line. Chris McNeal was the fourth Lobo to score in double figures with 10 points.

The Mountain West championship game is here and it is a throwback of sorts for who will win the conference championship. Leading scorer Anthony Mathis and was held scoreless on 0-for-4 shooting, but it hardly mattered on Friday night.

New Mexico are in great form, they have won their last seven games.

The odds favour the Lobos to a little extent as in the sole clash against the Aztecs this season, the Lobos have posted a close 79-75 win.
