Fresno, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Led by 22 points from Cameron Bairstow, the New Mexico Lobos downed the Fresno State Bulldogs, 89-78, in a Mountain West Conference tilt at the Save Mart Center.

Tyler Johnson led the Bulldogs (8-11, 1-5) with 16 points, while Cezar Guerrero and Marvelle Harris each scored 15, and Paul Watson ended up with 12 points.
