SANTA FE (KRQE) – New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas is making a very bold choice of who’s going to win the NCAA Basketball Tournament.
He’s picking New Mexico’s State’s men’s team to go to the tournament’s Elite Eight and the New Mexico State women to win it all.
Balderas says 15th seed New Mexico State will shock the sports world by beating Kansas, Wichita State and Butler before falling to unbeaten Kentucky.
The New Mexico State men’s basketball team is headed to the tournament for the fourth straight year.
They play Kansas at 10:15 a.m. Friday on KRQE.
