The Mustangs were led by Kim Clark, who finished with 10-points to lead the team.
The win helped the Pack extend a six-game home win streak, which began last season with a win over the very same Mustangs. The win was also the largest margin of victory over Western New Mexico since 1984 when the Pack won by 29 points.
