NMSU prepares to face Clemson in NCAA tournament
SAN DIEGO, California (CBS4) —
The New Mexico State Aggies are back in the March Madness, back in the first round, but that’s nothing new.
NMSU has been there seven of the last nine years.
The Aggies have struggled to get a win in the past but that might change this year as a 12 seed against Clemson.
First-year head coach Chris Jans said he doesn't have a crystal ball to make predictions but this team has a similar makeup to the Wichita State teams that he helped make deep runs into multiple NCAA tournaments - athletic, experienced and they genuinely like to play with each other.
NMSU tips off against Clemson on Friday at 8 p.m. local time.
