UNM secures 7th seed in MWC after win against UtahJoe Rull | March 1
THE PIT — It was quite the swan song for seniors JaQuan Lyle and Corey Manigault. Saturday, Feb. 29 marked the University of New Mexico's senior night and the end of Lyle and Manigault's home collegiate careers. A surging Utah State team (23-8, 12-6 MWC) came into the game having won nine of its last ten games and clinching second place in the conference. It was only fitting that the tandem took control during the game's waning moments and lifted UNM (18-14, 7-11 MWC) to a stunning 14-point comeback, giving the Lobos a 66-64 victory in their final home game of the season.
