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.
