A battle of the underdogs

One double-digit seed is moving on.

This matchup between the 2013 New Mexico Lobos and 2009 Utah Utes is the underdog matchup of the tournament as both are double-digit seeds and had massive upsets to move onto the second round.

Round 2 Matchups:

Series 9: #1 2011 SDSU vs. # 8 2009 BYU

Series 10: #2 2020 SDSU vs. #7 2007 Air Force

Series 11: #11 2013 New Mexico vs. #14 2009 Utah

Series 12: #4 2011 BYU vs. # 12 2018 Nevada

Series 11 Preview: Both teams in this series pulled off the upset to get here, which guarantees a double-digit seeded team will make the Final Four. I expect New Mexico’s depth to make the difference in this series against a Ute team that did have NBAer Luke Nevill but not much beyond that.

Game 1: The Pit, Series tied 0-0

Utah takes home court advantage in game 1 behind Luke Nevill’s scoring outburst.

Game 2: The Pit, Utah leads series 1-0

New Mexico takes game 2 with a balanced scoring effort and very good efficiency from the field.

Game 3: Jon M. Huntsman Center, Series tied 1-1.

New Mexico takes back home court in game 3. Their balanced scoring is making it so Utah can’t simply key in on one player.
