The New Mexico Lobos are an under seeded team who gets to face a struggling No. 10 seeded Stanford Cardinal on Friday afternoon. Sitting as the Mountain West conference tournament champion and with a 27-6 record and no real bad losses, New Mexico is a dangerous team in this tournament.
On the other hand, Stanford has been streaky over their last 10 games by going 6-4, but that also includes getting blown out by UCLA in the Pac-12 semifinals, 84-59.
New Mexico has won nine of their last 10 and that streak could be longer if the Lobos did not blow a double-digit second half lead over San Diego State.
Both teams are experienced with New Mexico returning four of their five starters from last years team, and Stanford can match that with eight players who have been in the program for four seasons, including four of the five starters. Safe to say that this game will not feature too many mistakes.
