ALBUQUERQUE — The Craig Neal era of Lobo basketball now has a firm date for its official debut.
The University of New Mexico opens with Alabama A&M, the first of 12 non-conference games that were officially released by the university on Wednesday.
The schedule features six home games, two road games and four neutral site games.
The Lobos are guaranteed to face five NCAA tournament teams (Kansas, Marquette, Cincinnati, New Mexico State University twice) and one NIT team (Charleston Southern) during its non-conference schedule.
“It’s a good schedule, maybe the toughest one ever here,” said Neal of a schedule that could feature up to nine postseason teams and seven teams in the 2012-13 top 60 in the RPI. “We tried to bring in opponents that if they aren’t in a major conference will do well in their leagues, because that has helped us in the past.”
The Lobos will host exhibition games against Eastern New Mexico and Jamestown Nov. 2 and 6 before the official season opener against Alabama A&M on Nov. 9.
