Lobo women fall to Netherlands
The University of New Mexico women’s basketball team suffered its first loss on its tour of Italy Tuesday.
The Lobos lost to the Netherlands national team 53-44 in Rome, Italy. The Lobos have been on tour in the country since last week.
Today, UNM will play its second game against the Netherlands to conclude the tour. UNM defeated Vicenza, Italy and the Adriatic Sea Sirens of Pesaro, Italy, in its other two tour games.
Against the Netherlands, UNM fell behind 21-8 early in the contest but battled back to take the lead in the third quarter.
The Netherlands, however, went on an extended 14-0 run, one which lasted eight minutes of the fourth quarter, to put the game away. Games on the tour consist of four 10-minute periods.
UNM’s Khadijah Shumpert paced her team with 13 points.
