LAS CRUCES, N.M. -- Daniel Mullings scored 20 points to help New Mexico State hold off Northern Colorado 67-63 Wednesday night.
The Aggies (4-1) broke a tie early in the second half with a 12-4 surge to make the score 48-40. They led by as much as 11 during the second half.
Following two missed free throws by Sim Bhullar, Tate Unruh couldn't connect on a potential go-ahead 3-pointer for the Bears. Mullings was fouled as he made a breakaway layup and hit the free throw to put the game out of reach.
