ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Lobo Men’s Basketball improved their record to 6-0 and won this year’s Lobo Classic with a 98-74 victory over Northern Colorado on Sunday.
“Morris Udeze was phenomenal. Our guys did a great job of finding him. He did an unbelievable job of making free throws for a guy who hasn’t been shooting great from the foul line. Jaelen House bounced back and played a great game, Mash was rock solid. So, it was a good win”, said UNM Head Basketball Coach Richard Pitino.
