26 of the Lobos 68 total points came off the bench, with all five non-starters playing at least 12 minutes and having a positive +/- on the night. The most notable performance came from junior guard Emmanuel Kuac. In his second game returning from a knee injury, “E-Man” posted a career-high in points, rebounds, assists, and blocked shots. The Alberta, Canada native finished the game with 11 points and nine rebounds, just one shy of his first career double-double. “I was aware of it, but I wasn’t trying to go out of my way to get a rebound,” says Kuac. “If it comes to me, it comes to me. It didn’t, but hopefully next game I get a double-double.”
The Lobos will go on a short break for the holidays before their next game. UNM is scheduled to begin conference play on Tuesday, December 28, against Colorado State.
