Preview: The Lobos are skidding and the Aztecs smell blood
What to watch for: A different Lobos squad
New Mexico is at a season low right now. The Lobos have lost four straight games, including bad losses at Air Force and Nevada, after beginning conference play with a promising 6-3 record. But don't expect the same UNM team from the last four games to show up tonight.
This is Aztecs vs. Lobos. This is the Mountain West's premiere rivalry, and there's no love lost between these two squads. New Mexico will be confident playing SDSU in The Pit, once of the country's best college basketball arenas. You can bet the Lobos still taste the bitter 14-point loss from earlier this year in Viejas.
