Bairstow powers New Mexico

Cesar Tordesillas - 4E Sports Contributor

Albuquerque, NM, United States (4E Sports) - Cameron Bairstow scored 26 points to lead the New Mexico Lobos in topping No. 6 San Diego State Aztes, 58-44, Saturday at University Arena.

The senior Bairstow scored at least 20 for the 16th time this campaign, prompting New Mexico coach Craig Neal to declare him as the best power forward in the country.

San Diego State entered the game hoping to deny Bairstow the ball.

But Bairstow pumped in 10 points in the first 9:20 of the game as New Mexico (21-5, 12-2) raced to an 18-10 lead.

In the second half, Bairstow's two baskets ignited a New Mexico 21-2 run to take a 50-26 lead. He ended up with 10 in the surge.

Bairstow then scored six of New Mexico's last eight points to keep San Diego State (23-3, 12-2 Mountain West) at bay.

Winston Shepard led San Diego State with 10 points.
