  • Pajarito ready for powder-filled weekend
    After a lot of sunny days this winter, dark clouds and snowy weather returned to northern New Mexico last week. Pajarito got 4 new inches of snow last night, 5 the night before and 11 since it was open last Monday. “It’s a blessing from Mother Nature,” Pajarito General Manager Tom Long said. “We wish it would have come in December, but we’re happy to have it. It made the conditions even better.” The 11 inches of new snow didn’t enable Pajarito to open any new terrain, but it did make the conditions on the trails that were already open nice and soft. Friday’s snow in particular was cold and dry — the definition of powder. “It should make for really fun skiing,” Long said. Snow is in Pajarito’s forecast for the next week also. Depending on how much snow actually falls, Long said they might be able to get the mountain 100 percent open. Right now, the front side is essentially 100 percent open while trails on the town side are still just a little too thin. The mountain’s tree skiing, however, is starting to be ok in spots. “The timing (of the storm) was good,” Long said. “We’re looking forward to a nice weekend.”

  • Lobos reeling as they face Aztecs
    A game at WisePies Arena might be exactly what the University of New Mexico Lobos need and that bill will be filled by the San Diego State Aztecs today. The Aztecs are a team that will bring the ornery out of The Pit, which will be sold out for the game. And Coach Craig Neal’s Lobos probably could use the friendly confines of WisePies Arena to help them, as Neal said, “get over the hump.” The Lobos held a 14-point lead over Nevada with 8:17 to play Saturday in Reno, but allowed the Wolfpack to force a tie in regulation and then pull out a 66-63 win in overtime. It was the Lobos’ fourth consecutive loss as they continue to slide down the Mountain West standings. UNM is now 14-11 overall and 6-7 in league play. “I just thought they (the Wolfpack) became real aggressive,” said Neal explaining Nevada’s rally. “They continued to drive our zone, and we didn’t get in front of them.  We didn’t have as much pop in our step defensively as we did in the first half. We have to figure it out. It’s very frustrating.” The Lobos got a bucket inside from J.J. N’Ganga with 11:55 to play, which pushed UNM’s lead to 45-31. UNM also led 52-38 with 8:17 to go and the Lobos were not in bad shape up 56-48 with 4:09 to play.
  • NMSU gets back its WAC loss vs. Seattle
    The New Mexico State University Aggies held the Seattle U. Redhawks to just 4 second half field goals in a big win Thursday night in Las Cruces. The Aggies topped the Redhawks 73-47 at the Pan Am Center. That win bumped the Aggies up to 8-1 in Western Athletic Conference play and 16-10 overall. The Aggies have won six straight contests. Pascal Siakam finished with a career-high 24 points for NMSU, which avenged its only loss of the WAC season Thursday. NMSU’s only conference loss came Jan. 17 in Seattle. Currently, the Aggies have a two-game lead over Missouri-Kansas City and Grand Canyon University in the WAC standings. They play Grand Canyon’s Antelopes Feb. 21 in Phoenix. Tshilidzi Nephawe, who was named the WAC Player of the Week following big games last week, had 11 points and 6 boards and DK Eldridge also finished with 11 for NMSU. NMSU’s defense highlighted the win. Along with holding the Redhawks to just 12 total field goals, it also force 11 first half turnovers, turning into 10 Aggie points on the other end. Lobos look to snap streak

  • 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.
