Giddens blasts K-State


— New Mexico guard J.R. Giddens thinks his fellow students are spending too much time studying and not enough watching the Lobos' fast start.

The former Kansas University player scored 21 points and had 12 rebounds Tuesday night in the undefeated Lobos' 78-54 victory over Kansas State.

Afterward, he made a pitch for getting more students into The Pit to watch what once again is becoming the best show in Albuquerque.

"The crowd is great, but I wish we could get a few more people out to see that we can play a little bit," Giddens said. "We need more students out there that are just home doing homework. Come out and enjoy yourselves."
