LAS CRUCES – NM State men’s basketball head coach Marvin Menzies recently distributed the 2012 WAC championship rings to his players and coaches at a private celebration at the Danny Villanueva Victory Club in the Stan Fulton Center.
The crimson-based rings, designed by Menzies, feature the WAC championship as well as the NCAA berth following the successful 2011-12 basketball season.
NM State finished the season with a 26-10 record, including 10-4 in regular-season WAC play. For the second time in three seasons, the Aggies went to the WAC Basketball Tournament and came away with the championship and an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.
The upcoming season is highly anticipated, as the Aggies look to repeat as WAC champs and make a return trip to the NCAA Tournament. Several key players return for the Aggies, including Daniel Mullings, Chili Nephawe, Bandja Sy, and Tyrone Watson.
Tickets for the 2012-13 season are on sale now. For more information, or to talk to a friendly ticket specialist, call 575-646-1420.
