AGAIN WE watch a very good UNLV team beat a Lobo team that has as much talent as I’ve seen since 77-78. We lost because our coach is young, inexperienced, and doesn’t understand that Anthony is a great shooter and his energy was wasted playing point against guards who were faster and quicker.

RE THE LOBOS vs. Running Rebels: Ugh! But the better team (coach?) clearly won. Where are you now, Dairese Gary, when we really need you?
MANY AGGIE fans watched Tuesday’s UNM vs. UNLV men’s basketball game with interest with most of us happy the good guy won.
YES WE’RE disappointed, but this was a good loss. We were in the game til the end and Vegas had a great night shooting. Most good teams have this kind of a loss, and it will make us better. Weir has us on the right path. Our 2-3 zone is not quite there yet, but it will improve. Not discouraged. We now get to see more of our players’ offensive skills and athleticism and the fact that this is such an unselfish team bodes well for the rest of the season.

THE UNM ATHLETIC Department hasn’t had much time to reflect on lost revenue for the recent UNM-Air Force women’s game and it’s already time for a repeat likeness of revenue fading into thin air, as there are “mirror” games this Saturday for the UNM basketball teams vs. Colorado State. It begs the question: Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the worst conference commissioner of them all?
