The 2020-21 regular season for the New Mexico Lobos is now finished, but there is still at least one more game to go for the Lobos in the overall season.
New Mexico dropped an 87-73 decision to Colorado State on Wednesday night in Fort Collins. The contest was a makeup game for one of the two games that were postponed earlier this season due to COVID-19 issues within the UNM program.
Adam Thistlewood had 27 points for CSU that included five three-point buckets. Kendle Moore added 17 points, while David Roddy scored 12 points and grabbed 14 rebounds for the Rams who are now 17-4 overall and 14-3 in the Mountain West Conference, which is good enough for second in the Mountain West Conference behind San Diego State.
Makuach Maluach, like he has for much of the season, led the Lobos in scoring, this time with 20 points. Jeremiah Francis was the only other Lobo in double figures in points with 10.
The game was UNM’s first following the news that the university and head coach Paul Weir would part ways at the end of the season.
For the Lobos, they end an underwhelming regular season at 6-15 overall and 2-15 in the MWC, which means the Lobos finished last in the MWC this season.
Although the regular season for the Lobos might be over, they still have at least one more game to go as they will take on either Fresno State or UNLV in the first round of the MWC Tournament next Wednesday. The Lobos were swept by both the Bulldogs and Rebels during the regular season this year.
