ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Tony Danridge scored a career-high 29 points, a fitting farewell on senior night, leading New Mexico to a 77-71 win over Utah on Tuesday night to force a tie atop the Mountain West standings.

Daniel Faris had 16 points and 10 rebounds while New Mexico's third senior, Chad Toppert, scored 12 points for the streaking Lobos (20-10, 11-4).

Utah (20-8, 11-4) lost its seventh straight at The Pit and now the Utes are in jeopardy of blowing the two-game lead it held with three remaining, before last weekend's 63-50 loss at archrival BYU.

Luke Nevill scored 16 points for Utah but had just four points and one rebound after halftime.
