LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - Isaiah Pineiro scored a career-high 23 points on 7-of-10 shooting, Tyler Williams added 13, including the go-ahead 3-pointer with four minutes left, and San Diego beat New Mexico state 65-60 on Wednesday night.

A.J. Harris tied it at 56 with a free throw, but Williams hit a 3-pointer and a jumper for a 61-56 San Diego lead. The Aggies closed to 61-60 on Eli Chuha’s layup before Pineiro made two free throws for a 63-60 lead with 19 seconds to go. Harris missed two free throws, but Williams made both of his on the other end, then stole the ball from Harris before time expired.

A 3 by San Diego’s Olin Carter III tied it at 29 at halftime. The Toreros shot 48 percent to 38 percent for the Aggies and made 11 3-pointers to New Mexico State’s four.

Isaiah Wright scored 17 with eight rebounds for the Toreros (6-2), who ended a two-game skid.

Sidy N’Dir scored 16 points and Jemerrio Jones added 14 with 11 rebounds for the Aggies (6-2), who saw their five-game win streak end.
