SILVER CITY, N.M. - Cameron Munoz dropped in 28 points, including eight 3-pointers, to help Montana State-Billings rally past Western New Mexico 80-68, Thursday night in Pacific West Conference basketball.
It was the last PacWest game for the two programs. Both will be joining the Heartland Conference next season. It was also the season finale for both teams.
The Yellowjackets (19-8, 9-6) won 11 of their last 13 games of the season. They made 15 3-pointers against the Mustangs.
"The kids did everything they could,” said MSU-B coach Craig Carse. "This young team won 19 games this season, second most in the conference. They played hard tonight.”
The Yellowjackets trailed 37-27 at halftime, but shot 53 percent from the field in the second half to rally.
Senior Justin Hassell posted his league-leading 11th double-double of the season with 23 points and 14 rebounds. Buddy Windy Boy added 13 points for MSU-B, while Carlin Hughes had nine points and eight assists.
Munoz finished with 111 3-pointers this season, the seventh-best for a single season. Windy Boy finished with 104, the eighth-best mark.
