Recap: New Mexico vs. Char Southern

Albuquerque, NM (SportsNetwork.com) - Cameron Bairstow scored a career-high 29 points on 9-of-13 shooting to lead five New Mexico players in double figures, as the 22nd-ranked Lobos defeated Charleston Southern 109-93 on Sunday.

Alex Kirk also made 9-of-13 field goals and finished with 24 points, 13 rebounds and five blocks for New Mexico (2-0), which shot a sizzling 59.6 percent and converted half of their 18 3-point attempts.

Kendall Williams had 20 points, 10 assists and three steals, while Cullen Neal contributed 11 points with seven assists off the bench and Cleveland Thomas chipped in 10 points.

Saah Nimley led the Buccaneers (2-2) with 24 points and matched a personal best with 12 assists. Paul Gombwer scored a career-high 17 points for a Charleston Southern team that shot 57.1 percent in the second half.

New Mexico head coach Craig Neal wasn't happy with his team's defensive effort in the second half during which Charleston Southern put up 57 points.

"Frankly I'm embarrassed with the way we guarded in the second half," Neal said. "In the second half I think our guys got very lackadaisical."

New Mexico and Charleston Southern went back and forth in the early going, with neither team leading by more than five points. Arlon Harper hit a 3- pointer to put the visitors up 21-19 with nearly eight minutes elapsed, but a dunk by Bairstow sparked a 9-0 burst.

The Lobos then went on 19-5 run after the Buccaneers closed to within 31-27 and took a 52-36 advantage into halftime.
