Eagles Off to a Good Start

By George Morse Sports and Outdoors

The Northern New Mexico College mens basketball team likes to think of themselves as family. In two impressive wins at home to start their season, Northern looks like it has a big family.

The Eagles defeated the University of the Southwest Mustangs 98-77 in their opening game of the season Oct. 25 at Eagle Memorial Gym, getting 60 points off the bench. In their next game Oct. 27 in Espanola, Northern manhandled Ottawa University of Arizona 113-74 with 15 different players putting points in the scorebook for the Eagles.
