    LAS CRUCES, N.M. -- Jonathan Gibson scored 24 points to lead New Mexico State to a 95-92 victory over Boise State on Saturday night.

    The Aggies (19-9, 11-3 Western Athletic Conference) led by 20 with 12:18 to play, but Boise State (13-16, 3-11) nearly came all the way back before an Anthony Thomas 3-pointer at the buzzer fell short.

    Boise State's Robert Arnold finished with 35 points, including a three-point play that pulled the Broncos to within five with 1:26 remaining. Arnold hit two free throws with 49.6 seconds left to get Boise State within two after a New Mexico State turnover, but the Broncos couldn't get any closer.

    The Aggies extended a five-point halftime advantage to 68-48 with a 24-6 run in the first eight minutes of the second half.

    Jahmar Young added 20 points, and Hernst Laroche and Hamidu Rahman each had 15 for New Mexico State.
