LAS CRUCES, N.M. -- Daniel Mullings had a career-high 32 points to lead New Mexico State over Texas-Pan American 90-78 on Saturday.

New Mexico State (15-7, 4-2 Western Athletic Conference) shot 57 percent from the floor and made 26 of 34 free throws -- where Mullins went 13 of 15. Renaldo Dixon added 15 points, Tshildzi Nephawe had 14 points with 14 rebounds and DK Eldridge chipped in with 14.

Shaquille Boga led Texas-Pan American (6-15, 2-4) with 19 points and six assists. Shaquille Hines added 16 points and seven boards, while Javorn Farrell had 14.

UTPA led early, going up by 12 points not quite 4 minutes in. NMSU clawed back quickly and took the lead with 7:27 left in the first on a pair of Eldridge free throws.

The Aggies never relinquished that lead, as they led by three at intermission and kept UTPA at arm's length in the second half.
