(Wyo.)- Jackson's Career High Lifts Lobos Past Wyoming 75-69
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Antino Jackson had a career-high 20 points and Joe Furstinger added a double-double as New Mexico overcame a sloppy performance to beat Wyoming 75-66 Wednesday.
The game turned at the start of the second half when Jackson scored the first eight points for New Mexico (8-10, 3-2 Mountain West) followed by a 3-pointer from Anthony Mathis for an 11-0 run that put the Lobos up 38-32. New Mexico was able to hold the lead the rest of the way, despite turning it over 20 times.
Justin James scored a career-high 31 for the Cowboys (11-6, 2-2), but he was the only Wyoming player in double digits.
New Mexico got scoring from just five players, but four of them finished in double digits with Furstinger scoring 17 with 10 boards and Makuach Maluach adding 17 points.
