Queen misses last second 3 and Auburn holds on.  Damn!!  5 huge missed FTs give Auburn the win 78-77.

Ballgame. Had tons of chances and couldn't get it done. The missed FTs to win it will haunt them for a long time.

One N Done University of North El Paso just can't breakthrough in the dance. So close, though.

Aggies hung in but couldn’t take advantage of Auburn choking. If I was an Aggie fan having my 78% foul shooter clanking two of three would have been the end of me.

NMSU actually got more calls than Auburn did. That's kind of surprising.

especially on that last trip, a close to 80% shooter only hits 1 of 3, then they can't convert on a last second shot attempt, with an out of bounds play that could have resulted in a much closer shot at the rim.

Heck, even that 3 point attempt was WIDE open from the corner.  Gotta knock that down.

They played bully ball in the closing minutes and dared the refs to call things. It almost worked.

Auburn is as weak in the paint as any power conference team in the tourney. That will do them in eventually.

Karma. The guy who missed the FTs is the guy with felony charges from San Jose State and the guy who missed the 3 is a guy who showed up on NMSU's doorstep after being denied admission at Western Kentucky. I have no idea how that guy was even deemed eligible to play this season, but he was.

They already showed that against Kansas earlier this year - what a shame to give this game away, especially to Pearl.  Ugh!!

They had a couple of balls wrapped with gift wrap.  Couldn't close it out, that's too bad.  Aggies represented well though.

I was wondering who that Queen guy was.  I didn't recognize him from our matchups.

Yea - true.  But, if there is true Karma, Pearl loses!!  lol

NMSU has been freakishly good at converting from 2P as well this season. They shot 69% from inside the 3P line in this one.

What was AJ Harris thinking by passing on the layup and pass out for "3"? Could he have thought they were down by 3?

there was a tall big riding his back who would've probably pinned his layup on the backboard.

Had to have thought they were down by 3.  What a huge blunder that turned out to be.

They had 3 FT's to WIN the game.  The lay-up at would have only gotten the team to O.T. and as mentioned above, likely gets pinned against the backboard by the trailing post player.

If that NMSU player at the FT line was as clutch as Spider Smith was against Fresno State in the WAC tourney nailing all 3 in clutch fashion, Harris would be the hero that made the key "assist" (not in official stats) that led to the game winning FT's.

I feel bad for NMSU, because they had multiple ways to win that game and just couldn't get over the top.

Question on strategy:

Belmont down 1 with possession vs. MD about 27 seconds left.  How quick do you start running your offense and trying to get the go ahead score?  Always a tough question.

Here's my question, if you run your "normal" offense, which should give you the best chance to get the best shot possible, does it matter how much time is left on the clock?  What is if you miss they shot, like Belmont did?  Worst case, MD makes 2 FT's and as long as you still have enough time, could tie the game.

If you make and still leave time on the clock, it simply means you have to defend for a few more seconds to secure the win.  I would much rather hit the go ahead shot and then play tough defense, than to run the clock all the way down, creating a hit the shot or lose situation.

Belmont let the clock run down too much and made a bad pass that resulted in a TO and had to heave a half court shot to try to win the game after MD hit 1 of 2 FT's.

My buddy who lives on the east coast texted me to say he thought my New Mexico Lobos would beat Auburn. Sheesh.

Hey LoboMike....throwin’ shade on the Aggie players when you have the island of misfit toys at UNM. Check yourself. P5 misfits transfer to UNM for a reason. Just think..Auburn would have beat you by 40

There was some aggie-hole on 610 earlier this week proclaiming that NMSU is the next Gonzaga. Huh, how'd that work out for you?

Get lost Aggie. I've already said we stunk this year and Weir better put up next year or else. That said, NMSU is still looking for its first NCAA win in five decades.

Shocking that would happen on a Lobo board. Sad that your defense of your players didn't happen, just redirected things. I guess you know what type of character NMSU recruits and didn't bother defending it.

Thanks for your posts. I’ve been upset that State lost today, but now, I’m feeling much better - even kinda glad they lost.
