New Mexico 73, Idaho 58

Demetrius Walker scored eight straight points to spark a

game-deciding, second-half run that turned a New Mexico deficit

into a victory Friday as the Lobos beat Idaho 73-58.

Walker, who hit all five of his 3-point attempts, finished with

19 points.

Connor Hill scored 20 points to lead Idaho (1-3) and Kyle Barone

added 16, but no other Vandal was in double figures.

Alex Kirk contributed 11 points, nine rebounds and three blocked

shots for the Lobos (5-0).

New Mexico trailed 47-41 after Barone hit one of his six

3-pointers five minutes into the second half.

But Chad Adams responded with a baseline drive, followed by

Walker’s streak that included two 3-pointers to spark the

Lobos.
