It was a rough night for the University of New Mexico Lobo women’s basketball team on all fronts Tuesday.
Not only did the Lobos struggle from the field in the first half against the Texas Longhorns, 6-foot-2 center Ebony Walker was injured in the second half. Walker, a starter for the Lobos, was diagnosed with an Achilles tendon injury and could be sidelined for the balance of the season.
UNM fell to Texas 67-52 at The Pit.
Antiesah Brown had 14 points for the Lobos, but had to sit out a good portion of the game with foul trouble.
UNM managed to connect on just 17.9 percent of its chances from the floor in the first 20 minutes, falling behind 30-18 at the break.
“I really can’t tell you what’s going on with our slow starts,” Brown said. “We’re looking to catch the feel of the game instead of taking over the game.”
For the Longhorns (3-0), Nneka Enemkpali had 19 points in the paint to lead all scorers.
It will be another tough contest for the Lobos (1-2) Saturday when they take on No. 16 Colorado in The Pit.
