Hutchison also tops Boise State in scoring on the season with 19.8 PPG and 7.5 RPG. Also in the double-digit club for the Broncos are Justinian Jessup (12.2 PPG), Christian Sengfelder (10.8 PPG and Alex Hobbs (10.0 PPG).
Over on the Lobos’ side, they’re currently 12-12 this year. New Mexico has won four of their last five games, including Saturday’s victory over San Jose State. In that game, Lobos guard Antonio Jackson put up 17 points to lead the team.
Sam Logwood is the top scorer for the Lobos this year with 12.7 PPG in 16 games, and Anthony Mathis is second with 12.1 PPG. Jackson is also in double-digits (10.7 PPG; 4.2 APG), as is Chris McNeal (10.1 PPG).
Boise State is 10-4 ATS in their last 14 Tuesday games and 1-4-1 ATS in their last six overall. The Broncos are also 1-4-1 ATS in their last six versus the Mountain West and 0-5-1 ATS in their last six following a straight-up win.
Meanwhile, New Mexico is 5-0 ATS in their last five home games and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games following a straight-up win. The Lobos are also 7-3 ATS in the last 10 home games versus a team with a winning road record and 6-15 ATS in their last 21 Tuesday games.
Aside from a 74-68 hiccup against Nevada, the Broncos have been playing pretty well over the last month or so. Boise State has also put up at least 93 points in two of their last three games. On the surface this looks like a Boise State win, but I think the Lobos have plenty of offense to make things interesting. I’ll take New Mexico.
