ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — With some of their strongest teams in years, New Mexico and New Mexico State are creating quite the NCAA tournament buzz across the state.
Mountain West Conference champion and No. 3 seed New Mexico (29-5) is in the West Regional and will face No. 14 seed Harvard (19-9), the Ivy League champions, on Thursday in Salt Lake City. Behind Kendall Williams and Tony Snell, this could be the best Lobos squad since Norm Ellenberger’s teams in the late 1970s.
Meanwhile in the southern part of the state, residents are celebrating No. 13 New Mexico State (24-10), the champion of the Western Athletic Conference.
The Aggies defeated Texas-Arlington in the WAC tournament championship game and face fourth-seeded Saint Louis (27-6) in their Midwest Regional opener in San Jose, Calif.
“It’s amazing. The whole state is excited,” said 33-year-old Todd Johnson, owner of Dos Hermanos burrito shop in Albuquerque. “It’s bringing us all together.”
