LAS CRUCES, N.M. (KTSM) – The New Mexico State women’s basketball team took down UT-Arlington 69-60 on Thursday night on Senior Night in Las Cruces.
Molly Kaiser netted a career-high 27 points in the victory, helping NMSU move to 14-14, 9-7 in the WAC with two games left. The Aggies are looking to close the season strong before heading the WAC Tournament in Las Vegas in a couple weeks.
NMSU led by over 20 points in the second half, but UT-Arlington refused to go away, keeping the game within reach in the second half.
