Recap: New Mexico St vs. Idaho

Las Cruces, NM (Sports Network) - Sim Bhullar supplied 20 points as the New Mexico State Aggies extended their winning streak to 10 with a 76-74 victory over the Idaho Vandals at the Pan American Center in a Western Athletic Conference matchup.

Bhullar was a perfect 8-of-8 from the field for the Aggies (16-8, 10-2 WAC). Renaldo Dixon and Terrel de Rouen scored 12 points each while all three players grabbed five rebounds a piece. Bandja Sy led all players on the boards, pulling down 15 rebounds with his nine points.

Idaho's (9-13, 5-7) offense was fueled by a 26-point performance from Kyle Barone and a 21-point performance from Connor Hill. Barone was 10-of-19 from the field while Hill was 6-of-9. Hill was 3-of-4 from 3-point range while Mike McChristian was 2-of-4, with 12 points. The Vandals have lost six of their last nine games.

The Vandals held a six-point lead with 6:27 left before the intermission, but let it slip away and went into the intermission trailing, 36-35. Idaho was behind at halftime despite shooting 50.0 percent from the field and knocking down 4-of-7 3-point attempts in the opening 20 minutes.

In the second half, the Aggies shot 61.5 percent from the field to outscore the Vandals, 40-39. Daniel Mullings hit two free-throws with 14 seconds remaining to put New Mexico State on top 76-74 and the Aggies were able to hold off after Idaho's Wendell Faines and Mansa Habeeb, who each missed potential game-tying shots in the final seconds.

The Aggies outrebounded the Vandals, 32-28, and scored 12 second chance points compared to Idaho's two.
