ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Phillip McDonald hit a season-high six 3-pointers in scoring 20 points Wednesday night to help New Mexico to a 71-46 victory over TCU.
Five of McDonald's long-range shots came during a 7:37 stretch sandwiched around halftime. His baseline jumper started the barrage with 4:48 remaining in the first half, breaking a 19-19 tie.
McDonald quickly followed with two more 3-pointers in the 15-6 run that left New Mexico (14-7, 2-4 Mountain West) leading 34-25 at the break.
The Lobos' Drew Gordon contributed 12 points and 11 rebounds for his fourth double-double in the past five games.
