At halftime Friday evening, the New Mexico Highlands women’s basketball team found itself down by just six points against the No. 2 ranked team in the nation.
On the road, no less.
But over the final 20 minutes, the game belonged to still-undefeated Colorado Mesa (22-0 overall, 18-0 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference). The Lady Mavericks outshot Highlands 52 percent to 28 percent in the second half to grab a 71-52 win in Grand Junction, Colo.
NMHU slipped to 10-12 and 6-12 heading into Saturday night’s game.
