 Darren Prentice and Romar Martinez Postgame Press Conference

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) - Darren Prentice came off the New Mexico bench Saturday to score 14 points of his game-high 19 points in the first half, leading the Lobos to a 57-47 win over San Diego at University Arena.

Prentice hit 7-of-9 shots from the field and at one point, scored eight of 10 New Mexico points in the midst of a game-opening, 21-6 run.

New Mexico (8-2), which had lost its last two games, opened the contest with an 11-2 run and never trailed.

The Lobos held San Diego (5-5), which had won two straight, scoreless for almost six minutes to start the game, during which the Toreros missed their first six shots.

Neither team started well, with the teams going a combined 1-13 four minutes into the game. But the Lobos corrected their shooting flaws first, eventually taking a 33-20 halftime lead.

San Diego was plagued by fouls throughout the game, particularly on the offensive end as it committed seven charges - five in the first half.

The Toreros did cut it to 51-42 with under four minutes remaining, but they missed several chances to cut into the lead any more. San Diego got 12 points from Rob Jones.
