WAC champion New Mexico State will play the NCAA Tournament without junior guard K.C. Ross-Miller according to a report from Jason Groves of the Sun News.
Ross-Miller has missed the last five games after being involved in a post-game altercation on the floor in the Aggies’ loss to Utah Valley on February 27th. The junior has been suspended ever since.
Groves spoke with New Mexico State athletic director McKinley Boston, who gave an update on Ross-Miller’s status:
The loss of Ross-Miller for No. 13 seed Aggies should hurt them as they need all the help they can get to beat No. 4 seed San Diego State in the West Region. Ross-Miller averaged 8.3 points, 3.5 assists and 2.2 rebounds per game while also being a three-point threat at 39 percent from the three-point line.
On the bright side, New Mexico State won five consecutive games after Ross-Miller was suspended and they’ll look to keep that streak alive against San Diego State at 9:57 p.m. on Thursday.
