ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Lobos women’s basketball team won its third consecutive game with a 70-61 victory over San Jose State on Saturday. It wasn’t pretty, but thanks to the defense and getting to the free-throw line, UNM was able to come out on top.

For a team that likes to shoot the thee-ball, UNM struggled and only shot 8-31 (25.8%) beyond the arc. At the charity stripe, however, UNM shot 22-66, compared to 4-7 for the Spartans.
