Men’s Basketball: Fresno State drops to 0-2 in Mountain West

By | January 12, 2013 | News (2)

The Bulldogs, without two key starters in their rotation, fell to 0-2 in Mountain West Conference play Saturday on the road against No. 25 New Mexico.

Fresno State, led by Marvelle Harris’ 11 points, made only 32 percent of their shots from the field in a 72-45 loss to the Lobos, who improved to 15-2 overall and 2-0 in conference play.

Harris, who did not start for the Bulldogs against San Diego StateĀ at home on Saturday, cracked the top lineup in place of the injured Tyler Johnson.

Kevin Foster, another starter for the Bulldogs, did not make the trip with the team due to personal reasons.

Alex Kirk led the Lobos with 19 points and 14 rebounds.

Freshman center Robert Upshaw added nine points for Fresno State, which at one point in the first half only trailed 23-20. The Bulldogs drop to 6-9 on the season.

The Bulldogs play their next two conference games at home. They host Wyoming (14-1, 1-1 MWC) on Wednesday and Nevada (9-7, 0-2 MWC) on Jan. 19.
