ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Following two straight losses, the Lobo men’s basketball team turned things around against Oral Roberts on Monday. Multiple players had solid performances for UNM, including forward Josiah Allick who had his second double-double in four games.
“It’s the way my mom raised me and every time I put myself in anything, you know, she’s like you know you don’t have to be perfect, but whatever you do, you’re going to give it a hundred percent,” said Allick. “That, and you’re not allowed to quit. Those two things just kind of go hand and hand where I don’t know how much I’m gonna have to offer, but you’re going to get whatever that is.”
