ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — When New Mexico needed a play Saturday, Tony Snell was there to deliver, helping the Lobos beat TCU 71-54.
Snell finished with 18 points, four rebounds and four assists for New Mexico (17-4, 3-2 MWC) and Kendall Williams added 14 points and five assists.
Amric Fields scored 16 for the Horned Frogs (12-8, 2-3). J.R. Cadott added 15 points and nine rebounds for TCU.
Snell had a 3-pointer to cap a 9-0 New Mexico run in the first half that put it up 22-16. And after TCU had closed within 33-28 at the start of the second half, Snell sparked a 12-0 run, sandwiching 3-pointers around a Hugh Greenwood fast-break layup on which Snell dished out the assist.
