HONOLULU -- Jahmar Young hit an 18-foot jumper with 0.9 seconds left to give New Mexico State a 71-69 victory over Hawaii on Thursday night.

Young finished with 26 points on 11-of-23 shooting for the Aggies (12-7, 5-1 Western Athletic Conference). They also got 19 points from Jonathan Gibson, 10 points and 12 rebounds from Wendell McKines and 12 points and nine rebounds from Hamidu Rahman.

Roderick Flemings led the Rainbow Warriors (9-10, 2-4) with 23 points and 10 rebounds.

After Young made an 8-footer to give the Aggies a 67-66 lead with 1:08 left, Gibson sank two free throws to make it 69-66. Hawaii's Hiram Thompson tied the game with a 3-pointer with 12 seconds to play before Young hit his game-winner.

Hawaii held a 40-28 halftime lead and led by as many as 14, but the Aggies opened the second half on a 17-2 run to pull ahead 45-42.
