FRESNO, Calif. - New Mexico State softball fans in Las Cruces will be able to follow the Aggies live on KSNM 570 AM at 3:00 p.m. MT Friday when Kyle Doperalski broadcasts a rematch from last week's regular-season title battle between top-seeded NM State and second-seeded Boise State at the 2011 WAC Softball Tournament held at host Fresno State's Bulldog Diamond.
Every Aggie softball game this weekend will be carried live via the Aggie Sports Radio Network with play-by-play from Doperalski. Aggie faithful outside of Las Cruces can listen to the broadcast live on NMStateSports.com or follow all of the tournament action on Twitter by following NMStateAggies. Fans can also follow the action with live streams of the tourney on WAC.tv.
NM State (41-15) earned a first-round bye as the top seed in the tourney after sweeping second-seeded Boise State for its first outright WAC title in Las Cruces last weekend. The Aggies set a program record for wins in a season with 41 victories after senior Hoku Nohara hammered a walk-off home run to defeat fourth-seeded Hawai'i Thursday.
Boise State (33-18) bounced back from its three-game slide in Las Cruces with a 3-2, 13-inning marathon, win over sixth-seeded Louisiana Tech Thursday.
An Aggie win against BSU keeps NM State in the winner's bracket with its next game slated for 3 p.m. MT Saturday to decide the WAC Tournament Championship. If the Aggies stumble against BSU, NM State would play the winner of third-seeded Fresno State and sixth-seeded Louisiana Tech in an elimination game at 8 p.m. MT Friday.
