UNM loses big game in The Pit

-A A +A

By Richard Stevens

ALBUQUERQUE — University of New Mexico Lobo head coach Craig Neal didn’t necessarily like what he saw in The Pit Wednesday night.
But Neal also didn’t like what he didn’t see.
“They used to have a killer instinct in them,” Neal said of his Lobos, who dropped to 3-1 in Mountain West play after a 79-76 loss to UNLV. “They’ve lost an edge.  I can’t figure out what it is.  They (still) have it and they are going to find it. If they don’t get it back, it’s going to be a long year.”
UNLV’s Runnin’ Rebels fired up the scoreboard for 46 points in the first half to grab a 46-42 lead. UNM won the second half, but only by a point, 31-30. 
With the loss, UNM dropped in the Mountain West standings behind 4-0 San Diego State, while Nevada is 4-1 after a home loss to Boise State.
The Lobos had the ball in the final 26 seconds, but missed three attempts from long range trying to tie the score and force overtime.
The difference at the end was marginal. The Rebels needed a stop and a basket. The Lobos needed a basket and a stop. It went the way of the Rebels.
