UTSA have remained winless in WAC play as the Roadrunners fell 82-62 to New Mexico State at the Pan-American Center on Thursday night.
Bandja Sy was the star for the Aggies as he managed a career high 25 points with nine rebounds as New Mexico State proved clinical with a 68.6 shooting percentage.
That shooting percentage was the main difference with UTSA shooting at just 40.4% with Kannon Burrage and Michael Hale III their best with 14 each, closely followed by Jeromie Hill with 13.
An 18-0 run from NMSU that started in the first half and ended in the early stages of the second took the game away from the Roadrunners, giving the Aggies a 38-32 lead at the break which was pushed out to 50-32 early in the second half.
A three-point play from Jeromie Hill with 15:55 to play finally put an end to UTSA’s scoreless run which lasted six minutes and 24 seconds, but for UTSA that was about as good as things got.
The Aggies built their lead out to 30 with 7:46 to play thanks to Sy’s dunk making it 74-44 as New Mexico State cruised to an 82-62 win.
