ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Chris Hines banked in a 3-pointer at the buzzer Saturday to lift Utah to a 62-60 victory over New Mexico.
New Mexico's Phillip McDonald missed the front end of a 1-and-1 free-throw opportunity with 17.3 seconds left, and Utah pushed it up court. The Utes (12-15, 5-8 Mountain West) lost control of the ball at the top of the key with the final seconds ticking off before Hines gained control and got off an off-balance shot that hit the glass and dropped through.
Drew Gordon had 17 points and a Mountain West Conference record 23 rebounds for the Lobos (17-10, 5-7). Dairese Gary added 21 points for New Mexico.
Hines had 15 points - all on 3-pointers - helping Utah overcome a 46-33 second-half deficit. The Utes also got 15 points from Josh Watkins and 12 from Shawn Glover.
