New Mexico tops Boise State 76-61

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) In his final home game, New Mexico's Drew Gordon scored 30 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to help the Lobos overcome a second-half deficit and claim at least a share of the Mountain West regular-season title with a 76-61 victory over Boise State.

Hugh Greenwood added 15 points for New Mexico (24-6, 10-4), while Derrick Marks scored 17 to lead the Broncos (13-16, 3-11).

Boise State led 52-48 with 8:15 left after Marks banked a shot in.

But the Lobos countered with a 10-2 run to regain control of the game, with Greenwood tying it at 54-all on a steal and a layup. On the ensuing possession, Greenwood picked off another one and fed Gordon, who was fouled. After he converted both attempts from the line, New Mexico never trailed again.

A loss by San Diego State later Saturday would give New Mexico the conference crown outright.
