LAS CRUCES, N.M. -- Bandja Sy scored a career-high 25 points to lead New Mexico State to an 82-62 victory over UTSA on Thursday night in conference play.
Sy also led the team with eight rebounds.
New Mexico State led 38-32 at halftime, and returned to score the first 12 points of the second half. They never looked back.
The Aggies shot 77 percent from the field in the second half -- compared to 36 percent for the Roadrunners -- and led by as many as 32. The Aggies outrebounded the Roadrunners 36-18.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
