Lobos move up in men’s hoops polls
The University of New Mexico Lobos made a big jump in this week’s Associated Press men’s basketball poll.
The Lobos, who won a pair of games this week to improve to 8-0 on the season, elevated seven spots in the AP poll to No. 18. Only Illinois (8-0) made a bigger leap in the poll — from No. 22 to No. 13 — of college hoops sportswriters from around the nation.
UNM garnered 402 points in the AP poll. The team is one spot behind San Diego State, which moved up six places this week, from No. 23 to No. 17.
Indiana (8-0) kept the top spot in the AP poll and Duke (8-0) is still the No. 2-ranked team in the nation. The teams are 1-2 in the USA Today coaches poll as well.
In the USA Today poll, the Lobos finished at No. 20, up three spots from last week. San Diego State finished 15th in that poll. UNLV, which UNM will host in its first Mountain West game Jan. 9, is also ranked in the top 20.
