The Looks
Looking Ahead: Looking past the holiday weekend, NM State hosts I-10 rival UTEP on Nov. 28 at the Pan American Center. After the meeting with UTEP, the Aggies hit the road to meet Southern Utah on Dec. 1, before making the short drive to El Paso to rekindle the battle with the Miners.

Looking Back: Two exciting matchups opened the season for the Aggies. NM State thrilled the crowd with an overtime win versus Loyola Marymount 77-76. Kelsie Rozendaal made her senior debut with a season high 22 points and collected her first double double with 11 rebounds, another career-high. Two days later, the Aggies made a late comeback attempt against UC Santa Barbara that fell short in a 43-41 loss in California. A slow start in the first half proved troublesome for the Aggies, who came up with 16 points and 16 rebound in the second half alone.
