Chad Adams hit three buckets in the second half during a 10-2 run by New Mexico that boosted the Lobos to a 75-62 win over the Wolfpack. The 10-2 run gave the Lobos a 60-53 lead. Sophomore Hugh Greenwood scored with a three-ball to give UNM a 67-61 lead after Jerry Evans Jr. scored for Nevada with 3:23 left in the game.

Lobo Demetrius Walker was called for an offensive foul on Evans Jr. at one end of the court. When Nevada advanced the ball to the other end Evans Jr. returned the "favor" by fouling Walker. The Lobo hit both free throws to give New Mexico a 69-61 lead. Nevada missed a layup on a fast break and Walker sprinted down court to grab the rebound. UNM's Kendall Williams converted both free throws after he was fouled to put the Lobos up 71-61.

Greenwood stole a Wolfpack pass, dribbled up court and scored on a layup. Deonte Burton hit a free throw and Walker converted two free throw attempts to close out the scoring for New Mexico. The Lobos are in first place in the conference standings with a 6-1 conference record. The basketball team is 19-3 overall.

UNM mens' basketball coach Steve Alford said, "Nevada was patient, took good shots and made us work hard on defense. I like what Demetrius Walker did on the defensive end. He rebounded, blocked shots and hustled."
