Jaisa Nunn com­pleted a three-point play with 1 sec­ond re­main­ing to help New Mex­ico stun the No. 16 Marquette women’s bas­ket­ball team in its sea­son opener, 88-87, on Mon­day night in Al­bu­querque, N.M.

Nunn was un­stop­pable for the Lo­bos as she fin­ished the 39 points on 14-of-15 shoot­ing from the field and by go­ing 11 of 12 from the free-throw line.

Lau­ren Van Kle­unen paced five play­ers in dou­ble fig­ures for the Golden Ea­gles with 23 points and Al­lazia Block­ton chipped in 20.

For­mer coach dies: For­mer Old Do­min­ion and Fayet­teville State coach Jeff Capel Jr. died, less than two years af­ter be­ing di­ag­nosed with ALS. Fayet­teville State Chan­cel­lor James A. An­der­son said fam­ily mem­bers told him of Capel’s death Mon­day. He was 64.

Capel was di­ag­nosed with ALS in the spring of 2016 by doc­tors at Duke Univer­sity. His son — Duke as­so­ciate head coach Jeff Capel III — re­vealed the di­ag­no­sis in a first-per­son story writ­ten in Jan­uary for The Play­ers Tri­bune.
