New Mexico San Diego St Basketball

No. 15 New Mexico entered Saturday’s at San Diego State as the only undefeated team remaining in the Mountain West.

34 points later, the Lobos left with a 55-34 loss to the Aztecs in a game that should give you a sense of just how tough that conference is going to be this year.

New Mexico shot just 25% from the floor in the 55-34 loss. They managed all of 0.576 points-per-possession, which is a number that tends to pop-up when you turn the ball over on 28.8% of your offensive possessions. Alex Kirk went just 1-8 from the floor and Tony Snell finished 2-7 from the field with six turnovers. In fact, if you take away the 14 points on 5-9 shooting that New Mexico got from Kendall Williams, the Lobos managed all of 20 points on 6-35 shooting.

That’s Northern Illinois bad.

Coming from the team that had a two-game lead on the entire Mountain West on Saturday morning:
