UNM Beats UNLV
Posted February 16, 2010on:
At the beginning of the season, many scouts thought that the University of New Mexico was a joke, until they beat four top ten ranked teams in the nation. Then all of a sudden the commentators on ESPN stated that the Lobos might have a chance of making the final four. It would be a cinderella story, but I have high hopes for this hard working New Mexico team. Recently they had a tough battle against the University of Las Vegas, it was a two point deficient with 20 seconds on the clock and the Lobos tied it up to go into Overtime, once the clock began there was no stopping the powerful lobo offense, they scored ten points in a matter of two minutes giving them a huge lead that was nearly impossible for UNLV to come back, and they did not. This gave the lobos credibility because UNLV was ranked until they lost to the Lobos. Hopefully they continue to do well going into March Madness.
