What to Know
The New Mexico Lobos will stay at home another game and welcome the South Alabama Jaguars at 9 p.m. ET Nov. 11 at The Pit. New Mexico has the odds in their favor, so they'll need to guard against complacency.
The Lobos beat the Southern Utah Thunderbirds 89-81 on Monday.
Meanwhile, everything came up roses for South Alabama at home against the Mobile Rams on Wednesday as the team secured a 97-59 victory.
The wins brought New Mexico up to 1-0 and South Alabama to 1-0. Two last-season stats to keep an eye on: New Mexico is stumbling into the matchup with the 42nd most points allowed per game in college basketball, having given up 75.3 on average. But the Jaguars enter the contest with 71.6 points per game on average, good for 30th best in college basketball. Maybe that strength will give South Alabama the oomph they need to beat the odds.
