    SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Nick Lewis scored a game-high 22 points as San Diego, which scored the first 11 points of the game, topped New Mexico 63-56 on Thursday night.

    The Toreros (9-3) ended New Mexico's three-game winning streak, while matching their best start since 1998-99 when they opened 10-3.

    Gyno Pomare had a game-high 14 rebounds and added 11 points for San Diego, which dropped the Lobos to 0-4 away from home this season.

    Mark Walters scored 13 points to lead the Lobos even though he went just 3-of-10 from the free-throw line.

    The Toreros opened up their 11-0 lead as New Mexico missed on its first four shots from the field. The Lobos didn't score until Ryan Kersten converted a layup at 5:39 into the game.

    Down 29-20 at halftime, the Lobos narrowed it to 39-44 with 10:29 left. San Diego, however, answered with back-to-back three pointers by Corey Belser and Brandon Johnson, and New Mexico could come no closer until the final minute when it moved within four points.

    Lewis went 8-of-13 from the field while making all six of his free-throw attempts.

    David Chiotti and Tony Danridge each had 10 points for the Lobos.
