    LAS CRUCES, N.M. -- New Mexico State guard Jahmar Young scored 22 points to become the 26th player in school history to reach 1,000 points in a 97-72 victory over Alcorn State on Monday night.

    New Mexico State (5-6) shot 48.7 percent in the first half, scored the game's first 12 points and outscored the Braves 22-13 in the last 7:28 of the half. The Aggies led by as many as 19 in the half after scoring 16 points off 13 Braves turnovers for a 52-35 halftime lead.

    Aggies guard Jonathan Gibson added 22 points, hitting four of the Aggies' 11 3-pointers. New Mexico State was 11-of-29 from beyond the arc.

    Jonathan Boyd led the Braves (0-12) with 23 points.

    Wendell McKines, the top rebounder in the Western Athletic Conference last season, scored eight points to go with eight rebounds and six assists after missing the Aggies' first 10 games due to academics.
