With less than a week left in 2018, the University of New Mexico Lobos are looking to leave their struggles behind and finish the year on a good note.

Non-conference record
After falling 65-75 to Penn last weekend, the Lobos won’t be finishing their non-conference schedule with a winning record. They have one more game before beginning conference play and a win this weekend would mean a 6-6 overall record. 

New Mexico did not see much home court advantage, as the Lobos went 3-4 when playing at The Pit. 

Last game of the year
The Lobos are closing 2018 with a road trip to Hobbs, New Mexico to take on the University of the Southwest Mustangs on Dec. 30. The game will be played at Ralph Tasker Arena at 2pm.

New Year, New Me?
