UNM Basketball: Tourney time for Lobos starts with San Jose State

In one of the earlier previews this season, it was said that anything could happen in the Mountain West Conference. Time after time, that adage has proven true for the Lobos (18-13, 7-11) this season. Most of those instances did not go in the team’s favor. On Saturday night, however, Lady Luck was in the…Continue Reading »

UNM Basketball: Utah State Aggies visit on Senior Night

Senior Night is supposed to be a celebration. After a tumultuous season that saw the Lobos (17-13, 6-11) fall from a 15-3 record to losing 10 of 12, the night may be bittersweet at best. JaQuan Lyle and Corey Manigault, the only remaining seniors, have had respectable seasons, but it certainly hasn’t gone as expected.…Continue Reading »

UNM Basketball: Lobos face final road test against Air Force

Two games separate the Lobos (17-12, 6-10) from the Mountain West conference tournament.

UNM Basketball: Alford, Neal make first return to The Pit

It’s safe to say that Saturday night didn’t go as planned. Sure, the Lobos (17-10, 6-8) didn’t let Bryce Hamilton single-handedly defeat them. It was more like they beat themselves in the final minutes. The Lobos uncharacteristically missed six foul shots within the last five minutes of the game, letting the result slip away. The…Continue Reading »

UNM Basketball: Lobos put home record on the line against UNLV

After suffering another blowout at the hands of San Diego State, the Lobos (17-9, 6-7) can finally put the toughest stretch of the season behind them.

UNM Basketball: Lobos head to San Diego looking for an upset

On Tuesday night, the Lobos (17-8, 6-6) are hoping to get some revenge against the San Diego State Aztecs (24-0, 13-0).
