Lobos picked to finish 5th in 6-team Mountain division

There was some good news and some bad news for the University of New Mexico Lobos coming out of Mountain West Media Day Tuesday.
The good news: the Lobos have a pair of the conference’s top players in LaMar Bratton and Carlos Wiggins.
But the bad news is that Wiggins and Bratton don’t appear to be enough to make up for the team’s downsides in the MW race this year.
The Lobos were picked to finish fifth in the six-team Mountain Division of the conference — the MW is split into two six-team divisions, the other being the West Division. In all, the Lobos earned 56 points, the third-lowest total among the 12 conference teams.
In the Mountain Division, only Air Force, one of the three teams UNM defeated in 2013, was rated lower, with 53 points.
UNM is coming off a rough season. It finished 3-9, with those three wins coming against Air Force’s Falcons, UTEP and in-state rival New Mexico State University.
This will also be the third year for the program under head coach Bob Davie.
Since Davie took over in 2012, the Lobos have gone 7-18, which, while hardly an impressive haul, is considerably better than the 3 wins in 3 years posted by predecessor Mike Locksley, who was fired midway through 2011.
UNM will open its 2014 season Aug. 30 against UTEP.
