  • Lobos come back to top Aggies
    ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Deshawn Delaney had a career-high 22 points with seven rebounds, helping New Mexico recover from an early 13-point deficit to beat down-state rival New Mexico State 62-47 on Wednesday night. Devon Williams added 13 points for New Mexico (4-3). Remi Barry led the Aggies (3-5) with 13 points, and Daniel Mullings added 10 and nine rebounds. New Mexico State used an early 8-0 run to go up 14-4, then extended that to 23-10 when Mullings’ 3-pointer capped a 7-0 run midway through the first half to build a 23-10 lead, it’s largest of the game. Although New Mexico struggled early with foul trouble to its interior players, it began to rally after going to a zone that consistently forced turnovers. The Aggies finished with 20 turnovers — equaling a season high — which led to 27 New Mexico points. Consecutive layups from Williams sparked a 19-3 Lobos’ run that put them in front 29-26. Hugh Greenwood and Delaney, who had 14 points in the first half, each scored five in the surge. New Mexico finished off the half by scoring the final five points and opened the second half with a 6-2 run to build a 40-30 lead. New Mexico State never got closer than eight the rest of the way.
  • WisePies secures Pit's naming rights
    ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — One of college basketball’s most beloved arenas is changing names. The Pit, the official designation of which is University Arena, will now be called the WisePies Arena. WisePies Pizza & Salad, a local restaurant chain, donated $5 million to the University of New Mexico to secure the naming rights for The Pit for the next 10 years. The chain’s name and logo will appear on signs outside the arena, on the court and on tickets. The donation is the largest cash gift ever given to the athletic department. The money will be used to pay off debt on the arena’s $60 million renovation done in 2010. “From the time we first discussed the potential renovation of The Pit, we talked about the need for state and private support to make the renovation a reality,” athletic director Paul Krebs said. The Pit has been one of college basketball’s iconic buildings since opening in 1966, often categorized with Duke’s Cameron Indoor Stadium, Kansas’ Allen Fieldhouse and Pennsylvania’s Palestra among arenas with the best atmosphere. Its subterranean design sets the playing floor 37 feet below street level, helping make The Pit one of loudest and most difficult places to play in the country.
  • Lobos, Aggies meet for first time Wednesday
    The University of New Mexico Lobo men’s basketball team will square off against the New Mexico State University Aggies for the first round of their home-and-home fight Wednesday night. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. at The Pit. So far this season, neither team has gotten off to a sterling start and both will be looking to rebound from recent losses. UNM was humbled by the USC Trojans Sunday, falling at home 66-54. UNM was held to just a 20-percent shooting performance from the floor in the second half. For the Aggies, they were downed at Wyoming Saturday night, 78-75, in Laramie. The Aggies trailed by double-digits early but battled back and actually took a 1-point lead with 4:31 to play. NMSU is 3-4 on the season, while UNM is 3-3.

  • Lobos close out season at home
    The University of New Mexico Lobo football team will finish off its 2014 season Saturday afternoon in Albuquerque. UNM will take on the Wyoming Cowboys at 1 p.m. Saturday at University Stadium. The Lobos were hoping to get their ship righted this season, the third under head coach Bob Davie, but will finish at least four games under .500 this season. The Lobos weren’t able to make much of a dent in terms of trying to catch up with the rest of the teams in the Mountain division of the Mountain West conference, losing by 38 points last weekend at division-leading Colorado State. However, they will have a chance to end on a good note, as the Cowboys have struggled this year and are just slot ahead of the Lobos in the division standings. This weekend is also Toys for Tots weekend. Fans can get discounted tickets at any UNM event by donating a toy for underprivileged kids.

  • Lobos ink three new players
    ALBUQUERQUE — The University of New Mexico Lobo men’s basketball head coach Craig Neal is ready to welcome three future Lobos who signed their national letters of intent Wednesday. High school prospects Jordan Hunter (Beaumont, Texas), Dane Kuiper (Tempe, Arizona) and Anthony Mathis (West Linn, Oregon) have all pledged to join the Lobos as freshmen beginning in the 2015-16 season.

Hunter had a 28-point performance against top-ranked Houston team Fort Bend Bush. Kuiper will come to Albuquerque as the Arizona Republic’s top high school player in the state of Arizona for the 2015 recruiting class. The Alaska transplant transferred to Corona del Sol High School before his junior season. In his first season in Tempe, Kuiper helped guide the Aztecs to a third consecutive state title. Kuiper was listed as a top 100 national prospect by HoopScoopOnline.com, as was Mathis Mathis was a 6A all-state selection as a junior and helped guide the Lions to a 24-4 mark in their state championship season.
