During his last three years at New Mexico State, the team chalked up a 74-18 record. That included a victory over a UNLV (1/8/90) team that had won the NCAA championship the year before. Lowe aided in the development of former New Mexico State stars Randy Brown and Reggie Jordan, who both played in the NBA.
