New Mexico @ Saint Mary's
Current Records: New Mexico 6-0; Saint Mary's 6-0
What to Know
After a three-game homestand, the New Mexico Lobos will be on the road. They will take on the Saint Mary's Gaels at 10 p.m. ET Wednesday at University Credit Union Pavilion. Both teams looked pretty sloppy on the offensive side of the ball the last time they faced off, scoring just zero points combined.
New Mexico made easy work of the Northern Colorado Bears on Sunday and carried off a 98-74 win. It was another big night for the Lobos' forward Morris Udeze, who dropped a double-double on 33 points and 14 boards.
Meanwhile, it was close but no cigar for Saint Mary's as they fell 68-64 to the Washington Huskies last Friday.
New Mexico have to know they'll be fighting an uphill battle given the ten-point spread they are up against. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread, however, as they are currently on a four-game streak of ATS wins.
New Mexico's victory brought them up to 6-0 while Saint Mary's' loss pulled them down to an identical 6-0. Two stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Lobos rank 20th in college basketball when it comes to points per game, with 84.3 on average. But the Gaels enter the matchup with only 55.9 points allowed per game on average, good for 11th best in college basketball. These opposing strengths should make for an exciting matchup.
