LAS VEGAS -- New Mexico won the Mountain West Conference tournament the last two seasons, and the Lobos werent prepared to let the title go. Trailing by one with a little more than a minute left, Cameron Bairstow scored five of the Lobos last eight points to help 20th-ranked New Mexico win its third consecutive tournament title, with a 64-58 victory over No. 8 San Diego State in Saturdays championship game. Bairstow finished with 17 points, and the victory gives the Lobos the automatic berth into the NCAA tournament. The 6-foot-9 senior forward was named tournament MVP after averaging 20.3 points per game and 9.0 rebounds per game. "In the regular season San Diego State was the best team," Bairstow said. "I think in this tournament, we were the best team. (The MVP trophy) could have gone to a number of players, the guys sitting next to me. It wasnt about proving a point. You just got to understand its all about team success. Thats what it is. All the accolades that come off that are a bonus. At the end of the day its all based on team success." The No. 2 seed in the Mountain West tournament is now 6-0 all-time when playing the No. 1 seed. "I got terrific kids, a terrific team thats believed in me, taking over a team that won back to back regular season and tournament championships," said first-year New Mexico coach Craig Neal. "This is our third one. Its very special to me." It didnt come easy against the conferences No. 1 defence, as New Mexico (27-6) had its five-point halftime lead disappear when the Aztecs opened the second half on an 8-0 run, to take a 30-27 lead. Trailing 56-49 with 2:34 left in the game, the Aztecs went on an 8-0 run to go up one with 1:21 remaining. The run was culminated when Winston Shepard stole an inbounds pass, dished to Dwayne Polee II for a slam dunk. Polee was fouled and converted the three-point play. With momentum seemingly shifted, Bairstow took over, driving on Josh Adams for a lay-in while drawing the foul. Bairstow converted the three-point play to give the Lobos the lead again. Polees layup attempt at the other end didnt fall, Bairstow rebounded with 51 seconds left and Kendall Williams made a 3-pointer 30 seconds later to seal the win. Williams added 16 points for the Lobos and moved up to No. 5 all-time on New Mexicos career scoring list with 1,794 points, while Greenwood had 12. "I think the timing of it was more fortunate for us this time," Williams said. "Last game they timed it just right and we didnt have an answer for it. This time they punched us in the mouth to start (the second half), and we were able to respond throughout the half. That was the big difference." After shooting 34.8 per cent (8 of 23) from the field in the first half, the Lobos were 10 of 21 from the floor in the second half, including 4 of 9 from long-range. And despite having one of the more formidable frontcourts in the nation, led by Bairstow, San Diego State outscored the Lobos in the paint, 24-18. The Aztecs also outscored New Mexico off turnovers, 21-8, and with bench points, 16-4. In a game that featured 10 ties and 12 lead changes, New Mexicos seven point advantage at the 2:34 mark was the largest lead of the game. "This was a tremendously hard fought game between two very good basketball teams," San Diego State coach Steve Fisher said. "Were disappointed that we didnt get the opportunity to cut the nets down. But were proud of what weve done and how weve done it. "We competed from wire to wire, and we just didnt quite have enough to finish. But if we continue to play that way, well have a chance to be playing after the first weekend of the NCAA tournament. Thats our goal now." San Diego State (29-4) got a team-high 15 points from Xavier Thames, the leagues regular-season player of the year. Thames also had three assists while once again committing just one turnover. For the tournament, Thames had 16 assists versus a mere three turnovers. Joining Bairstow, Williams, Polee, and Thames on the 2014 all-tournament team was New Mexicos Alex Kirk.

Veteran Tim Cahill, Australias leading international goalscorer, will lead the team in Jedinaks absence.Oman had a 1-0 loss to South Korea in its opening match in Canberra, narrowly missing a stoppage-time equalizer that would have earned the team a valuable point.Postecoglou said hed heed the lessons learned at the World Cup in Brazil — when the Socceroos took Chile and Netherlands right to the wire before a lopsided loss to 2010 champion Spain in their last group match — and rotate his players in the preliminaries rather than going into later matches with a fatigued starting lineup. Australia and South Korea meet in the last group match on Saturday.Weve learnt pretty clearly at the World Cup by the third game we were pretty spent as a group because we relied on a core group of players, Postecoglou said. We dont want to fall into the same trap. We want to do well in all three games and (Oman) is a very, very important game for us.Postecoglou said Oman made it tough for South Korea, and he expected his lineup to confront a similar bustling, counter-attacking game.While (South) Korea dominated the chances and possession you saw right up until the last minute the game was in the balance, Postecoglou said. They are always a tough opponent for us.Centre back Trent Sainsbury said three points against Oman would give Australia every chance of progressing.We got off to a great start against Kuwait, but this is equally as important, if not more so, he said. If we get that three points, then were through. Its a massive game for Australia. Were at home, weeve got a point to prove.dddddddddddd___KUWAIT vs. SOUTH KOREA (0700 GMT): Swansea City midfielder Ki Sung-Yuengs is expected to be central to South Koreas push for back-to-back group wins.Coach Uli Stielike is demanding improvement from his South Korea lineup, which dominated possession and had considerably more chances against Oman but had to settle for a 1-0 win, courtesy of Cho Young-cheols goal in first-half stoppage time. Oman didnt get a shot on goal until substitute Amad Al Hosnis header in injury hit the crossbar.Stielike said the two-time champions were under intense pressure in South Korea to improve on the semifinals appearances at the last two Asian Cups. He said he saw positive signs in the second-half against Oman.I prefer a hard, tough match in our opening game so we can learn from our mistakes and get better and better in the tournament, he said. I feel thats better than winning 5-0 and then everyone thinks you can win the Cup and you get smaller and smaller instead.There was some doubt over the fitness of defender Kim Chang-soo and Bolton Wanderers midfielder Lee Chung-yong, who were both injured during the opening match.Normally the players know one day before the game the starting lineup (but) in this case its not like this, Stielike said. Not because I dont want to give it to them, but at the moment we dont know what players are ready.And despite Kuwaits lopsided opening loss to 2011 finalist Australia, Stielike said the team had South Koreas full attention.I dont consider Kuwait a weak side, he added. I know some people believe South Korea will have an easy time against Kuwait, but I will tell my players to be careful.Kuwait went into the tournament opener with limited preparation under new coach Nabil Maaloul, who is hoping to have attacking options Bader Al Mutawa and Yousef Naser fit and ready to start.Team spokesman Nawaf Al Enezi said the players had put the loss to Australia behind them.Against Australia we played well, and created a lot of chances, and the players sprit was high, he said. We know the Korean style, and I hope we can play with the style that (Maaloul) wants and get a good result.
