The University of New Mexico Women's Basketball Team returns to Dreamstyle Arena — The Pit on Thursday night at 7 p.m. against the University of Denver Pioneers in their first round match up in the Women's National Invitational Tournament. 


The University of New Mexico baseball team trailed by a score of 8-0 before rallying for six runs late in the game, but it wasn’t enough as the Lobos were held scoreless in the bottom of the ninth and suffered defeat for the second straight day at the hands of No. 25 Oklahoma. 

UNM (11-9, 3-3 Mountain West) was defeated 8-1 on Tuesday evening, in a lopsided affair which saw the Sooners put on a pitching clinic. The Sooners were able to go up 3-1 before exploding in the sixth inning for four runs.

New Mexico United opened their heavily anticipated inaugural campaign on Friday in front of a sellout crowd at Isotopes Park, coming away with a 1-1 draw and their first ever point against Fresno FC.

Sporting the black and yellow home kit with the Meow Wolf logo emblazoned across the chest, Devon Sandoval opened his scoring account in the 25th minute with the first goal in club history. United were to be denied a victory and the full three points, however, after Brazilian winger Jackson's header from just outside the six yard box found the net for the visitors just minutes into the second half.

The University of New Mexico baseball team was faced with some difficult situations throughout Tuesday night's game against Oklahoma at Santa Ana Star Field.

Initially, the defense helped get the pitching staff out of those jams, but eventually the Sooners broke through and recorded plenty of runs to take the first of two matchups by a score of 8-1.


Men's Basketball: Wolf Pack upset as Aztecs advance to meet Utah State in title game

For the second time in as many years, the University of Nevada Wolf Pack will enter the NCAA Tournament — but not as Mountain West Champions, after it was defeated by the San Diego State Aztecs in the semifinal round.

Last year, the Wolf Pack got beaten soundly by San Diego State, losing 90-73 in a game that probably wasn't as close as the final score might indicate — as the Aztecs led by as many as 34.

Men's Basketball: Lobos unable to advance; lose to No. 2 Utah State

Utah State University men's basketball coach Craig Smith said it's something he speaks to his team about on a constant basis, but it's not what you may be thinking.

"Next best action," Smith said.

When things are not going right for the Aggies, he said his players are urged to think "NBA" and try to find a way to reverse the trend.

Men's Basketball: Lobos overcome woeful first half to bounce Wyoming out of MW Tourney

LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Lobo men's basketball played a first half that may have been the worst of the season before a sophomore transfer decided enough was enough and willed his team to victory to advance in the 2019 Mountain West Basketball Championship.

Former UCONN product Vance Jackson was wide open for a corner 3 and called for the ball early in the second half. His teammate didn't see him though and instead the Lobos threw up a contested shot that was off the mark.

Women's Basketball: Cold shooting dooms Lobos against San Diego State

LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Once again, it was shooting that doomed the New Mexico Lobos against San Diego State.

In the Lobos first game of the Mountain West Tournament, they fell to the seventh-seeded Aztecs, 70-61 in overtime. 

UNM only shot 10 percent from 3-point range, going 3-for-29 from deep, compared to 45 percent from beyond the arc for SDSU. 

"I thought out of 29 shots from the three, I'm going to say 25 were horse shots," head coach Mike Bradbury said. You've got to make more than three of those. You just can't win like that." 

New Mexico United Roster Breakdown

With anticipation for the first match in New Mexico United’s brief history reaching a fever pitch, the club is set to announce several more player signings before the first whistle blows on March 9. However, the core of the group has coalesced over the last eight months, and the inaugural roster has largely been set.

With an average age of 25, the club’s players fall just under the average age of 25.3 of players in the USL Championship as a whole, according to soccer statistics website Transfermarkt. 6 players have logged MLS minutes (David Estrada, Devon Sandoval, Sam Hamilton, Chris Wehan, Ethen Sampson, Justin Schmidt), while all but a few have prior USL experience.

Women's Basketball: Jaisa Nunn leads Lobos over Wyoming

Jaisa Nunn wanted to show out one final time in front of the Pit crowd, and she did just that on her Senior Night. 

"It was very emotional for me at first because it's Senior Night," Nunn said. "I knew I had to show out and I had to do if for the fans especially and I was glad that I got the results that I did. I played hard, and so did the team."

Nunn finished with 26 points, 13 rebounds and two blocks to lead the Lobos to a 57-50 victory over the Wyoming Cowgirls that secured the two seed at next week's Mountain West Tournament in Las Vegas. UNM will play the winner of a matchup between San Diego State and Air Force. On the night, Nunn also became the seventh Lobo ever to record 1500 points.
