LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - Isaiah Pineiro scored a career-high 23 points on 7-of-10 shooting, Tyler Williams added 13, including the go-ahead 3-pointer with four minutes left, and San Diego beat New Mexico state 65-60 on Wednesday night.


A.J. Harris tied it at 56 with a free throw, but Williams hit a 3-pointer and a jumper for a 61-56 San Diego lead. The Aggies closed to 61-60 on Eli Chuha's layup before Pineiro made two free throws for a 63-60 lead with 19 seconds to go.
