ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Tony Snell had 25 points, including a shot-clock-beating 3-pointer with a minute left that helped New Mexico complete an 86-81 comeback win over Davidson early Tuesday.
De'Mon Brooks scored 22 points for the Wildcats (1-1), who led 50-36 early in the second half.
The Lobos (1-0) got back into the game in part because of a dominating performance on the boards in the second half. After getting outrebounded in the first half, New Mexico held a 27-7 margin after the break.
The Lobos also were strong from the line, outscoring the Wildcats 38-15.
Davidson ran out to a 10-0 start and stretched its advantage to its largest, 27-11, midway through the first half.
The Wildcats had five players in double figures, while Jake Cohen grabbed eight rebounds.
