Freshman forward Orlando Robinson had 20 points and 15 rebounds as Fresno State rallied to beat shorthanded New Mexico, 82-77, on Saturday at the Save Mart Center.
Freshman guard Jarred Hyder contributed 15 points for Fresno State (8-14, 4-7 Mountain West Conference). Nate Grimes added 15 points and 13 rebounds. It was Grimes 21st career double-double.

Fresno State Trails by 17 in First Half

The Bulldogs overcame a 17-point deficit late in the first half. They have won two straight conference men’s basketball games and three of their last five games.
“I told my team that we needed to stay together,” Robinson said. “If we stay together, we win the game.”
Keith McGee had 18 points for the Lobos (16-8, 5-6). Zane Martin added 18 points. The Lobos started the season 15-3 but have lost five of their last six games.
“I was very disappointed in our defensive effort early. I’m going to go back and look at that and see why that was,” Bulldogs coach Justin Hutson said. “But I was very proud of how we came back and fought and got stops when we needed to.”

Thin Roster for New Mexico

New Mexico played without several key players. Carlton Bragg was dropped from the program after multiple off-court incidents. JaQuan Lyle and JJ Caldwell are suspended, and Vance Jackson is out with a knee injury. Jackson scored a game-high 29 points the first time the teams met this season.
The Lobos managed to be competitive by hitting 12 of 28 from 3-point range. However, the Bulldogs answered by converting 11 of 25 from beyond the arc despite New Williams converting just 1 of 9.
The Bulldogs evened the season series against the Lobos with the win. New Mexico defeated Fresno State 78-64 on Jan. 7.
