Men’s Basketball sneaks by NMHU

Coming into the game, Mines controlled their own destiny for making the RMAC tournament. Needing two wins to guarantee themselves the sixth spot in the conference tournament, the men’s basketball team looked to get the first of those two wins at home against New Mexico Highlands University on Friday night.
Thanks to a 30-5 margin in bench scoring, 16-8 assists margin and a combined 34-39 effort from the free throw line for 87.2 percent, Mines handily beat their opponent. Mines is now 14-10 overall and 11-9 in the RMAC.

Grinds My Gears: Action Stars

Action stars that simply will not go away.

Many of us who have turned on the television over the past month have no doubt seen the commercials for “A Good Day to Die Hard.” This is the most recent movie of the Die Hard series which began all the way back in 1988. Nearly 25 years later, Bruce Willis is still at it. Except he is no longer the semi-fit cop in his 30s, but rather a man in his late 50s trying to save the world one last time. If I wanted to see an old guy jumping around and trying to save the world, I would tune in to see Si Robertson from Duck Dynasty, not pay $10 or more to see Bruce Willis try to come up with more cheesy catch phrases before he shoots someone.
