    New Mexico moves on, looks to improve to 3-0 against BYU

    Associated Press

    LAS VEGAS -- New Mexico earned a shot at beating BYU for a third time by outlasting Colorado State 67-61 in the quarterfinals of the Mountain West Conference tournament Thursday.

    Drew Gordon had a double-double with 13 points and 13 rebounds and Kendall Williams, the league's freshman of the year, led the Lobos (21-11) with 16 points.

    No. 8 BYU is 29-1 against everybody else but 0-2 against New Mexico, which beat the Cougars 86-77 in Albuquerque and 82-64 last week in Provo, Utah, when BYU was without center Brandon Davies, who was suspended for violating the school's honor code.

    Despite Andy Ogide's dominant performance -- 25 points and 11 rebounds -- the fourth-seeded Rams (19-12) will have to hope for a NIT bid now.

    Colorado State hasn't won a conference tournament game since 2007.
