    LAS VEGAS -- Troy Gillenwater had 18 points, Gordo Castillo added 14 while hitting all 10 of his free throws and New Mexico State grinded out a 66-60 win over Nevada in the quarterfinals of the Western Athletic Conference tournament on Thursday.

    New Mexico State (16-16), the defending WAC tournament champions, got off to an awful start and never found much of a rhythm in a defensive-dominated game. Gillenwater made some big plays down the stretch and Castillo hit four free throws in the final 31 seconds to seal the win, sending the Aggies into Friday's semifinals against Boise State.

    Nevada's Malik Story had 22 points and hit a turnaround 3-pointer with about 20 seconds left to pull the Wolfpack within two, but he had a key turnover and missed a 3-pointer in the closing seconds. Nevada had just four assists with 15 turnovers to see its inconsistent season come to an end.
