ALBUQUERQUE, NM (KRQE) – Monday night marks the second game of men’s basketball at the University of New Mexico and New Mexico State University. The Lobos got the better of the Aggies in the first clash (101-94), and NMSU head coach Chris Jans said he was disappointed with the rebound he saw from his team. “What matters most is our lack of rebound. Historically, since we’ve been here. We’ve probably set the bar a little too high for most teams to try to match and pass that. hope we get better. I don’t. I don’t think there’s a chance we’ll hit the numbers we had the first three years. ” The Aggies hope to avoid a seasonal sweep for the Lobos.

Rivers spoke to Menigault’s mother, Sothia Green, following a stroke that left her son’s brain hemorrhaged and bruised. “I don’t know what he got hit with,” Green said. “I don’t know if it was a pipe or if it was a shoe or if it was a foot, if it was constantly stomping on his head. I’m still not aware of what happened. ” Menigault, who now plays professionally in Cyprus, was attacked outside a nightclub after celebrating a win with his teammates.
