    Teddy Buckets: New Mexico State upsets UConn 70-63 in NCAA



    New Mexico State coach Chris Jans was in the hallway of KeyBank Center preparing his pregame speech as Richmond celebrated the day's first victory by a No. 12 seed in a nearby locker room.

    "I stopped and watched them. It gave me chills to think about what that would feel like for us," he said. "Was really, really hoping we'd get to feel that as well."

    The Aggies did just that.

    Teddy Allen scored 37 points and New Mexico State won an NCAA Tournament game for the first time almost three decades, upsetting fifth-seeded Connecticut 70-63 Thursday night to become the second No. 12 seed to advance out of the first round.

    The WAC will undergo major alterations next season, with Chicago State departing without a known conference destination, and New Mexico State and short-timer Sam Houston both joining Conference USA. Lamar announced in April it was headed back to the Southland, but not until 2023-24.

    In the additions category, Incarnate Word (Southland) and Southern Utah (Big Sky) are on their way in for 2022-23, and UT Arlington (Sun Belt) will also rejoin the WAC after previously being a member in the 2012-13 season. (Although not an addition, current WAC member Dixie State will be known as Utah Tech beginning next season.)

    Future look: Abilene Christian, Cal Baptist, Grand Canyon, Incarnate Word, Seattle, Southern Utah, Stephen F. Austin, Tarleton State, UT Arlington, UT Rio Grande Valley, Utah Tech (formerly Dixie State), Utah Valley
