CSU falls 2 games behind Lobos in MWC

FORT COLLINS, Colo. - Kendall Williams sank a Mountain West Conference record 10 3-pointers on his way to a career-high 46 points and No. 16 New Mexico ended No. 22 Colorado State's 27-game home-court winning streak 91-82 Saturday.

Alex Kirk added 19 points and 10 rebounds for the Lobos (23-4, 10-2), increased their lead in the conference race to two games over the Rams (21-5, 8-4).

Colton Iverson had 26 points and 15 boards for the Rams, who looked like they were going to move into a first-place tie atop the standings after taking a 70-64 lead at the 6-minute mark.

Williams, who had been on the bench with four fouls, returned and hit three 3s during a 14-2 run that gave New Mexico a 78-72 lead.

His 10 3-pointers broke the conference mark of nine set by several players, most recently UNLV's Chace Stanback against Central Arkansas on Dec. 28, 2011.
