NCAA Basketball: Mountain West Conference Tournament- New Mexico vs Utah State Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

It’s Monday and we’re back. Thanks for joining us.

What do international Lobos do?

For many New Mexico athletes, they already live off campus or else have moved away during this time. However, for others, such as the four international players on the men’s basketball team, it’s much more difficult. They can’t go home but are being advised not to stay here. Times are tough.

Group of 5 Mailbag.

The Athletic raises some good questions and also offers some of the best G5 matchups over the years to rewatch. One is particular is sure to make Nevada fans rejoice and Boise State fans to have nightmares.

MWC quartet to compete... hopefully.

Four MWC men’s basketball players were selected to compete in the 3X3U National Championship, if it happens. The group is Jazz Johnson of Nevada, Sam Merrill from Utah State, Justinian Jessup out of Boise State and Nico Carvacho of Colorado State. Seems like a pretty strong group.

I’m just gonna leave this here...
