The New Mexico Lobos (6 - 6, 0 - 0 CONF) are on the road this week in order to square off with the hometown Air Force Falcons (5 - 7, 0 - 0 CONF). New Mexico comes into this game having lost two out of their past three games while Air Force has struggled in much the same way. Air Force will be hosting this game at the Clune Arena in Colorado Springs, CO. Air Force will be the underdog despite hosting this game.

New Mexico takes the court with a team that has been inconsistent at both ends of the floor. New Mexico is scoring 80 PPG on offense this season while shooting 43% from the floor as a team. Anthony Mathis (15 PPG, 2 RPG) is our player to highlight in this game as he brings a real scoring punch to the floor for New Mexico. New Mexico is surrendering 79 PPG to opposing teams on defense. The Air Force Falcons are a slower paced team in comparison to New Mexico. Air Force is scoring just 68 PPG on offense this year while shooting 48% from the floor. If Air Force can slow the game down and control the tempo, the Falcons might be able to score an upset victory. Ryan Swan (12 PPG, 5 RPG) leads the charge for AIr Force and he'll be counted on in order to come up with some big buckets.

This New Mexico team is just not as good as years past and on the road tonight can't see that changing. Final Score Prediction, Air Force Falcons win in upset but grab the points just in case 70-67.
