What to Know

This past Saturday, the Cowboys lost to the San Diego State Aztecs on the road by a decisive 67-50 margin. Guard Hunter Maldonado had a rough night: he finished with only three points on 1-for-11 shooting in his 39 minutes on the court.
Meanwhile, the Lobos came up short against the Colorado State Rams last week, falling 92-84. The losing side was boosted by forward Morris Udeze, who had 25 points along with seven rebounds.
A pair of stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Wyoming has allowed their opponents to shoot 45.90% from the floor on average, which is the 44th highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. New Mexico's offense has more to brag about, as they they enter the game with a 48.60% field goal percentage, good for 15th best in college basketball.
