LAS CRUCES, NM — Another piece of the NM State men’s basketball team’s 2021-22 non-conference schedule has been added.
Head coach Chris Jans announced Tuesday that the Aggies are headed to Pullman, Wash., on Wednesday, Dec. 15, 2021, to take on Pac-12 foe Washington State inside Beasley Coliseum.
A tip-off time has not yet been announced for the fourth all-time meeting between the Aggies and Cougars.
Each of the previous three showdowns between the two squads have been played over the course of the last three years. NM State picked up a pair of wins over Washington State in the 2018-19 season – Jans’ second season in charge of the Aggies. In December of 2019, the Cougars got the better of the Aggies in Spokane, Wash., to cut NM State’s all-time series lead to 2-1.
NM State owns an 88-127 (.409) all-time record against current Pac-12 programs. About to enter his fifth season as the Aggies’ head coach, Jans is 2-3 (.400) when facing off against Pac-12 foes.
