The New Mexico Lobos visit the #6 Nevada Wolf Pack in MWC college basketball on Saturday.
The New Mexico lobos defeated San Diego State 83-70 on Tuesday as a 2.5 point home dog to end a three game skid.
New Mexico outscored San Diego State 47-33 over the final 20 minutes behind a 53.8%-41.5% edge in marksmanship.
Keith McGee led the Lobos upset with 19 points followed by Anthony Mathis with 17 points, three yanks and four helpers.
New Mexico received eleven points, three pulls and four assists from Makuach Maluach while Carlton Bragg added eight points and eleven rebounds.
The #6 Nevada Wolf Pack have notched eight consecutive victories after running past Colorado State 98-82 as a 12.5 point road favorite.
Nevada jumped to an eleven point lead at the half and never looked back behind 47% marksmanship and a 28-11 edge at the line.
Jordan CarolIne poured in a contest high 40 points and snagged 12 rebounds with Caleb Martin adding 25 points, six boards and four helpers.
Jazz Johnson gave the Wolf Pack another 15 points followed by Cody Martin who chipped in with seven points, five pulls and five assists.
I am still wondering how the Lobos won the first time but they have Nevada’s attention now…
