New Mexico Lobos Basketball Schedule

Each year The Pit, the Albuquerque, New Mexico home of the New Mexico Lobos basketball team, is one of the toughest places in the country for visiting teams to enter. The arena is practically bursting at the seams with excitement as Lobos fans are some of the most dedicated and boisterous in all of college hoops. New Mexico has proven themselves to be one of the top teams not only in the Mountain West conference, but in the entire country. Last season New Mexico went 15-3 in the conference but finished second behind San Diego State for the regular season championship. The Lobos will be looking to get enough wins this season to once again be regular season champs but it is never easy going in the Mountain West.

Once again the Lobos will have to go up against all of their toughest in-conference foes including the San Diego State Aztecs, the UNLV Running Rebels, the Boise State Broncos, the Nevada Wolf Pack, and others. It seems as though each year the Mountain West gets better and the 2014-2015 season should be as competitive and action-packed as ever. The Lobos enter the season as the defending conference tournament champions and you can be sure that they will be prepared to take the best shot of every tea in the conference looking to prove their mettle, including San Diego State who the Lobos defeated in the championship game of the Mountain West Conference Tournament. This is gearing up to be an exciting year for the Lobos and you will want to be there in person to help cheer the on to win after win. However, tickets to see New Mexico play at The Pit can be hard to find so be sure to get yours from StubHub as soon as possible while you have the best seats in the house to choose from.


New Mexico Lobos Basketball History

Basketball has been a varsity sport at New Mexico since all the way back in 1899 and the team really began to garner national attention in the 1960's under head coach Bob King. In the Nineties the Lobos started making regular appearances in the NCAA Tournament and have participated in the Tournament 15 times. In 2007 the Lobos scored a major coup when they landed head coach Steve Alford who helped guide New Mexico to four regular season championships in the Mountain West Conference along with three conference tournament championships. Alford departed after the 2012-2013 season and some outsiders expected the 2013-2014 season to be a bit of a struggle as the team adapted to a new system under head coach Craig Neal but the Lobos dominated the conference, finishing just behind SDSU in the regular season standings and then defeating the Aztecs in the conference tournament championship game. There are clearly more big things in store and they regularly feature some of the best and most exciting athletes in the country so all die hard Lobos fans will want to be there right from the start as New Mexico continues the beginning of an exciting new era under Coach Neal.


New Mexico Lobos Basketball Conference

In recent years the Mountain West Conference has emerged as a true national powerhouse. There are now eleven members of the Mountain West Conference: San Diego State, UNLV, Air Force, Boise State, Colorado State, New Mexico, Nevada, Fresno State, Wyoming, Utah State, and San Jose State. Previous members have included TCU, Utah, and BYU. Of the current members, Utah State leads the way with twenty NCAA Tournament appearances. However, so far all of their appearances have come before joining the Mountain West. UNLV and Wyoming, two charter members of the Mountain West, are next in line with 19 and 14 respectively. UNLV and Wyoming are also the only two members of the conference to win a National Championship, with UNLV winning in 1990 and Wyoming winning all the way back in 1943. Lately it has been San Diego State, New Mexico, and UNLV who have dominated the conference on the basketball court with SDSU tearing up the national rankings during the 2013-2014 season. The current season is a celebration marking the fifteenth anniversary of the creation of the Mountain West Conference.


The Experience

Attending a top college basketball game is one of the best experiences to be found in sports. Many of the top student athletes in the world take the court in college basketball, when this is combined with some of the most passionate fans in all of sports there is an atmosphere in the arena that cannot be found anywhere else. When you set foot into The Pit for a New Mexico Lobos home basketball game this will all be clear. As the teams set up for opening jump ball the fans get on their feet and loudly cheer for their alma mater and hometown favorites. The game continues full of end to end action, big time shots, and clutch defensive stops. All of a sudden the clock is winding down in the second half and the two sides are wrapped up in yet another tight contest. Your palms get sweaty with each trip down the floor and each time a player from your favorite team lets loose a shot you hold your breath until the ball tickles the twine. This continues until the final buzzer when the Lobos' side erupts after another big win and their fans exit of the arena in jubilation.


Trivia

The New Mexico Lobos have won the Mountain West Conference Tournament in each of the last three seasons and were regular season champs in 2012 and 2013 before finishing just a game behind SDSU in 2014. Several former Lobos have gone on to great success in the NBA including Luc Longley who won three NBA Championships with Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls, Michael Cooper who won five NBA Championships, and Danny Granger who is an NBA All-Star. Current coach Craig Neal was an associate coach under Steve Alford and played his college ball at Georgia Tech under legendary coach Bobby Cremins where he earned All-ACC honors.
