Playoff hopes turned dim for New Mexico Highlands’ basketball teams, which suffered sweeps at the hands of Colorado School of Mines and Colorado Christian over the weekend at the Wilson Complex.
Perhaps the bright spot of the weekend was the men’s close call (77-69) Friday night against Mines, the No. 11 team in NCAA Division II.
The Cowboys got within two late in that game before the Orediggers (21-3, 17-3) put some distance between themselves and the ‘Pokes with the help of four free throws by Luke Meisch.
