Duff led the team in scoring with 22 points on 8-17 shooting. She stepped up big time, with more than half of her points coming after her twin sister, LaTora left the game due to injury. Fellow senior, de la Cerda, also had a great night shooting when it mattered most — 6-10 from the field including 3-5 from three — with all of her points coming in the second half. She also had a great night off the glass with a team leading eight rebounds. The Roswell native had a game leading +/- of 20.

The Lobos will now travel to Las Cruces for a second matchup against the Aggies in three days. Tipoff is a 2 p.m. at the Pan American center.
