LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - Pascal Siakam tied his career high with 35 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to lead New Mexico State to a 76-61 win over Oral Roberts on Monday night.

Siakam was 13 of 23 from the floor. Johnathon Wilkins and Ian Baker had 12 points apiece for New Mexico State (7-5). The Aggies, who hit a scorching 11 of 19 from beyond the arc in their 73-53 win over UTEP on Saturday, hit just 2 of 10 from long range on Monday night.
