New Mexico @ San Jose State
Current Records: New Mexico 11-15; San Jose State 7-19
What to Know
The New Mexico Lobos have enjoyed the comforts of home their last three games, but now they must head out on the road. The Lobos and the San Jose State Spartans will face off in a Mountain West battle at 4 p.m. ET on Sunday at Provident Credit Union Event Center. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they’ll have plenty of motivation to get the ‘W.’
New Mexico received a tough blow on Thursday as they fell 83-68 to the Colorado State Rams. Guard Jamal Mashburn Jr. (17 points) and forward Jay Allen-Tovar (17 points) were the top scorers for New Mexico.
Meanwhile, SJSU has to be hurting after a devastating 90-60 defeat at the hands of the Nevada Wolf Pack on Thursday.
The losses put New Mexico at 11-15 and SJSU at 7-19. A couple defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Lobos are stumbling into the contest with the 21st most points allowed per game in college basketball, having given up 76 on average. The Spartans have experienced some struggles of their own as they have allowed their opponents to shoot 47.10% from the floor on average, which is the fifth highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
