Recap: Texas-El Paso vs. New Mexico St

El Paso, TX (Sports Network) - A pair of Chris Washburn free throws with only seconds remaining turned the tide for the Miners of Texas-El Paso as they squeezed out a 55-54 win over the New Mexico State Aggies in non-conference play at the Don Haskins Center.

Chris Washburn finished with seven points, all of them coming at the charity stripe, while Julian Washburn accounted for a game-high 20 points for the Miners (2-4) in the victory. John Bohannon added 15 points and Jacques Streeter seven points and a game-high seven assists.

The Aggies (3-4) were paced by Tyrone Watson who tallied 13 points, the only player to score in double figures for the visitors.

A close game for much of the first half, NMSU claimed a 32-28 advantage at the break thanks to 50 percent shooting from the floor and a 9-of-13 showing at the free-throw line.

In the second half the Aggies made a total of only eight field goals and missed a potential game-winner in the final moments when a three-point shot by Daniel Mullings missed the mark.

New Mexico State held a slight lead on the glass, 28-23, but that made little difference as the visitors turned the ball over 20 times on the night.
