Why New Mexico Will Win

If the Lobos are going to pull off the upset in round two of the Paul Weir Bowl, they will have to find a way to do it without their best player, Sam Logwood. The senior forward leads the team in scoring and rebounding, but decided to take a break from the team Friday, and is not expected to play against New Mexico State. For a team that has already had issues on the offensive side this season, losing a player of Logwood’s caliber makes things even more complicated for UNM. On a more positive note, the Lobos hung around with the Aggies when the two played in Las Cruces on November 17, and New Mexico has the benefit of playing at home on Saturday.
