ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) Missing four starters for a variety of reasons, New Mexico turned to Zane Martin and Corey Manigault, who combined for 41 points Tuesday to help the Lobos beat San Jose State 86-59.
Neither Martin nor Manigault were starters a month ago when two players were suspended indefinitely. One of those players remains suspended and the other has been dismissed from the team.
But Manigault had 21 points with nine rebounds and Martin had 20 points to lead New Mexico (16-5, 5-3 Mountain West) to a 13th straight home win this season. It is the Lobos' best start at home since going 16-0 to start the 1998-99 season.
