Colorado Mesa senior guard Tommy Nuno’s big game Friday night against New Mexico Highlands resulted in what is believed to be the first triple-double in program history.
Nuno scored 24 points and added 10 rebounds and 10 assists in the Mavericks’ 96-79 victory. On Monday, he was selected the RMAC men’s basketball offensive player of the week.
The next night, Nuno scored 11 points, had five rebounds and eight assists in a victory over CSU-Pueblo. The 2-0 weekend sweep moved CMU (10-5, 6-3) into a tie for third place in the conference standings.
