During the 1950s, Henson played for the Aggies. He then coached at the local Las Cruces high school before he was hired to coach at his alma mater. His team’s 1970 NCAA Tournament run helped put NMSU on the map. They steamrolled Rice 101-77 in the opening round and edged out Kansas State 70-66 in the NCAA Midwest Regional semifinals. New Mexico State beat Drake 87-78 to set up a Final Four matchup with John Wooden’s UCLA Bruins. The Aggies lost to the Bruins, who eventually went on to win the national championship. In Henson’s nine-year tenure, his teams reached the NCAA Tournament six times.
Henson has invited back to coach the team in 1997. He wanted to donate his time and coach for free but state law required payment. Henson agreed to coach the Aggies for seven more seasons at the rate of $1 per month. NMSU returned to the NCAA Tournament in 1999 under Henson’s tutelage.
