ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Lobo women bounced back from a loss last week to #6 Arizona, with a 78-66 victory over UTEP inside the Pit on Sunday night. “You know, I thought we played really, really well, especially offensively. That is a really good team that has won a lot of games and they are so efficient offensively, they are hard to guard. So, that was a good win and I am proud of the team and I am looking forward to the Christmas Break”, said UNM women’s basketball Coach Mike Bradbury.
