Pascal Siakam, picked 27th by the Raptors, is the first player drafted out of New Mexico State since Randy Brown in 1991. The last NMSU player drafted in the top 30 was Sam Lacey, who went 5th overall in 1970.

Siakam on the path to the draft?

He flew under the radar on the national level this season, but Pascal Siakam averaged 20.3 points and 11.6 points for the Aggies and caught the eye of NBA executives. Will they stay or will they go (Insider)

UNLV has agreed to a deal with Marvin Menzies to become the Rebels' new coach, replacing Chris Beard who jumped to Texas Tech after three weeks on the job.

As speculation mounted during Friday that former Sacramento Kings coach George Karl could be a candidate at UNLV, a source told ESPN that Karl is still mulling over whether he wants to return to coaching so soon after a difficult tenure with the Kings as well as dealing with a nagging knee injury. Meanwhile, a New Mexico State source told ESPN that the school expects its head coach Marvin Menzies to take the UNLV job if a deal can be worked out.
