LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - Sidy N’Dir scored 14 points to lead six Aggies in double figures, and new head coach Paul Weir got his first Division I victory as New Mexico State beat Arizona Christian 100-52 on Friday night.

It was largest margin of victory for the Aggies since a 49-point win over Western New Mexico on Dec. 18, 2000, and the first time they reached 100 points since scoring 106 against UMKC on Jan. 18, 2014.

Among the Aggies to reach double figures was Ian Baker with 12 points. Baker was named to the Lou Henson Award Watch List on Wednesday. The award is named for the former head coach, who spent the bulk of his career at Illinois and New Mexico State and is now a special adviser to the Aggies.

The Aggies shot nearly 50 percent and scored 26 points off of 22 turnovers.

The NAIA Firestorm (1-1), who counted the game as an exhibition, were led by 12 points from Steven Loucks.
