Lobo men’s basketball season opener postponed

On Nov. 30, the Mountain West Conference announced in a press release that the two game series between the University of New Mexico and Boise State, which was slated to happen on Dec. 3 and Dec. 5, has been postponed.

The conference statement gave some insight into when those games could happen.  

According to the conference, “The rescheduled dates will be announced once finalized by the Mountain West and both institutions.”

The Lobos were supposed to open their season against Boise State about a month prior to their two game series against Nevada, which is currently scheduled for Dec. 31.

In a press conference on Nov.13, UNM Athletics director Eddie Nuñez gave some insight into the status of the games against Boise State. 

“For us to play Boise in such a short turn around really doesn’t put our student athletes in the best position to be successful,” Nuñez said. “We are working with the conference office, with Boise, they’ve both been really good and understanding to some alternative dates. We are going to play them, it’s just (a matter of) when we’re going to play them.”

As of right now no new dates have been announced, and it is unclear if the games against Boise State will be rescheduled to late December, or sometime next year.

This is a developing story. This article will be updated as more information becomes available
