Despite loss, Lobos move up in AP Top 25 (view poll)

........................................................................................................................................................................................

Despite the close loss at San Diego State on Saturday night that cost them a third straight Mountain West title, the New Mexico Lobos on Monday moved up the rankings in the latest Associated Press Top 25.

UNM (24-6, 15-3 Mountain West) is ranked No. 20 after being No. 21 a week ago. SDSU moved up from No. 10 to No. 8 in the poll.

The teams are the top two seeds in this week’s Mountain West Tournament in Las Vegas, Nev., with both teams opening up play in Thursday’s quarterfinal round.
