ALBUQUERQUE N.M. (KRQE) - Lobo men's basketball is coming off of a tough loss on Saturday against Utah State, that ended with a bad call from an official. UNM is now looking to move past that loss and are focused on winning at Fresno State. Fresno is currently 15-5 overall and 6-2 in MW play. They will pose a major test for the Lobos on Saturday at 8 p.m.
Coming off of that tough loss to Utah State, UNM will have a full week of practice to prepare though, and that time has proven to be beneficial.
"I am thankful for the break myself because obviously, the way it went down was the way it went down, but obviously with time, you are on to the next game. So, it's just given me a little time to dig into Fresno and get our guys ready, and hopefully get prepared for Saturday to be the best we can be", said UNM Head Coach, Paul Weir.
Freshman point guard, Drue Drinnon participated in his first practice on Thursday, after being in concussion protocol. This does not mean Drinnon is in the clear, as he still needs to be cleared by doctors to play on Saturday.
UNM will look to improve thier 9-11 overall and 3-5 conference record on Saturday at Fresno State, that game will be at 8 p.m. and shown on ESPNU.
