Local Sports

The hot streak continues for Mike Bradbury and his University of New Mexico Lobos women’s basketball team.

The Lobos won an 11th straight game Saturday evening, topping Nevada 66-64. Lobos point guard Aisia Robertson scored 21 points, pulled down 7 rebounds and had 5 steals for the Lobos.

Jayla Everett had 16 points and 2 blocks. Ahlise Hurst scored 10 points for the Lobos. Jade Redmon led Nevada in scoring with 17 points. She also pulled down 5 rebounds. New Mexico controlled the game as the speed of Robertson appeared to a problem for Nevada.

The Lobos opened up their biggest lead, 9 points, in the third quarter, but Nevada would rally to tie the game at 44. The game would be a rollercoaster ride the rest of the way with the Lobos getting a late bucket to go up by at 66-64.

Nevada got a good look at a three-point opportunity with time running out but fell short. With the win, the Lobos improved to 12-1 overall and 2-0 in the Mountain West. Nevada fell to 4-9 overall and 0-2 in conference play.

The Lobos are at UNLV Wednesday.
