  • Lobos lose 3rd straight Tuesday
    In truth, there were a lot of reasons for New Mexico’s 70-59 Mountain West loss at Colorado State University. The Rams got off to a good start. The Lobos got off to a bad start. The Rams hit eight 3-pointers. The Lobos didn’t get much scoring from their posts. The Lobos had too many turnovers. The Lobos also waited too long to up their intensity and try to cut into a fat 23-point lead the Rams had established at 44-21 about 5-1/2 minutes into the second half at Fort Collins, Colorado, Tuesday night. “It was a like a 12-round bout (boxing) and the first eight rounds they knocked us all over the ring,” said Lobo head coach Craig Neal. “The first half we didn’t play very well and that’s not the way we play. I was happy with our fight. I was happy with what our guys did in the second half. We showed a lot of heart. But you can’t come in against a veteran group like they have and not get physical and go at them early.” The loss was New Mexico’s third in a row and drops the Lobos to 14-10 overall and 6-6 in Mountain West play. Colorado State improved to 21-4 and 8-4 in the conference.

  • UNM is knocked off by Air Force
    In a way, half the scoreboard was pretty much what Lobo Coach Craig Neal was looking for when he brought his University of New Mexico Lobo men’s basketball team to Colorado Springs to play the Air Force Falcons. The Lobos held Air Force to 53 points — on the Falcons’ home floor.  That’s pretty good. However, the 49 points the Lobos scored was not wanted and not expected in UNM’s Mountain West loss Wednesday night in Clune Arena. “We have to get out of this final 4-minute funk,” said Neal. “We became passive.” Wednesday night, the funk actually was longer. The Lobos did not score in the final 6 minutes and 40 seconds of the game. The Lobos typically will lock down on defense in the final run to the gun.  The Lobos typically will make some plays, make some drives, get some second-shot opportunities and get to the free-throw line. But that didn’t happen Wednesday night in Colorado Springs. It was the Falcons making those kinds of plays they needed to win. “You can’t have mental breakdowns,” said Neal. “We make two or three stops, but they get second chances and they bang down threes.”

  • Lobos win on late basket
    LAS VEGAS (AP) — Jordan Goodman’s tip-in with 9.1 seconds left lifted New Mexico past UNLV 71-69 on Wednesday night for its 11th win in 13 games at the Thomas & Mack Center. Christian Wood’s basket cut UNLV’s deficit to 69-67 with 1:42 left and his dunk a minute later tied it at 69. After Goodman’s basket, UNLV had its layup attempt stripped at the buzzer. Hugh Greenwood had 22 points and eight rebounds for New Mexico (13-6, 5-2 Mountain West). The Lobos have held their opponents under 70 points in every game this season. Greenwood’s sixth and final 3-pointer gave New Mexico a 63-60 lead. Wood scored 20 points for UNLV (10-9, 1-5), and Rashad Vaughn and Patrick McCaw added 13 apiece. UNLV went on a 7-0 run, capped by Vaughn’s 3-pointer, to take a 50-48 lead. New Mexico quickly tied it up, and Arthur Edwards steal and dunk gave New Mexico a 52-50 lead.
