NCAA preview – Aggies and LobosMarch 13th, 2012 at 11:34 am by vantate under Sports
The Skinny on the Aggies: Wendell McKines is making the most of his misfortune. The Aggies’ senior forward broke his foot during practice and was forced to redshirt last season. That meant he could return for one more year this season, and all New Mexico State has done is go all the way to the NCAA tournament.
The Skinny on the Lobos: Drew Gordon may be one of the premier centers in the NCAA tournament. The transfer from UCLA is a load at 6ft 9″ and 245 pounds, and he averages a double-double while connecting on better than 50 percent from the field. Steve Alford points to him as the reason the Lobos have “gone to the next level.”
