ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — UNM’s Victory Over Aztecs Sets Up Huge Game Against UNLV
The hottest team in the Mountain West Conference is now the best team in the Mountain West Conference.
The streaking New Mexico Lobos made it six straight victories and gained a major measure of revenge – and certainly some national respect – by pounding 13th-ranked San Diego State 77-67 on the road Wednesday.
The win left UNM (21-4, 7-2) alone at the top of the league with five games left.
It’s the third straight year the Lobos have beaten a ranked foe on the road, and this one served as a wake-up call to the NCAA Tournament committee, which will select its field next month.
