The New Mexico Lobos and San Diego State Aztecs series has been called off due to New Mexico not having enough scholarship players to play the contests.
The Mountain West Conference put into place a requirement of each team needing to have seven scholarship players in order to play games. New Mexico had eight scholarship players during their contest with Fresno State on Saturday.
Although it has yet to be announced publicly who the other players are that have opted out of the season for UNM, the Lobos have had Keith McGee already opt out of the season back on January 13th.
New Mexico has played all of their regular season games out of state due to the state’s public health order. Up until last week that public health order prevented the Lobos from practicing.
UNM is 5-11 on the season and 1-11 in the Mountain West Conference following being swept by Fresno State over the weekend.
It is unclear whether the Lobos will have enough players to play the rest of the regular season. Mountain West Connection will provide updates when they become available.
