We like our sunshine a lot here in the Land of Enchantment, but winter is a fine time as well. New Mexico boasts some excellent skiing locations and a host of top-notch cold-weather events, so don’t just bundle up and hide in front of your space heater this season. Head out to the four corners of our state in search of culture, food, sports and other entertaining activities.
As we further approach the University of New Mexico's basketball season, fans are hoping to keep the team's significant momentum, shown earlier this year. While ultimately falling short in the Mountain West Conference tournament championship game against San Diego State, UNM appears to have a roster worthy of an NCAA tournament bid in February.
The University of New Mexico Lobos silenced its critics Saturday after a beat-down in Vegas. Especially UNM's quarterback, Sheriron Jones, who became the first to throw for four touchdowns in two consecutive games in program history.The offense has acquired its struggles throughout the season; however, numerous plays, made by Junior QB, Jones, against a conference rival have not only made him a candidate for the “Manning Award Quarterback of the Week,” but also a hopeful turnaround for the general program.
The University of New Mexico’s Athletic Department has recently begun featuring a new series titled, “Get to know your Lobos,” where, throughout the remainder of the off season, golobos.com will be making its way across the men's basketball roster; asking personal questions of each individual player. So far the first installments contain arguably the three most highly-anticipated players for the 2018 season: Dane Kuiper,Anthony Mathis and Vance Jackson. As the first game approaches, players will continued to be featured by the site in order to provide fans an insight to our beloved Lobo athletes' interests and preparation heading into the season. Whether it relays a player's educational focus, a recreational activity or his preference in red or green chile, fans have also been encouraged to join in on the action by sending their direct questions to @UNMlobosMBB on Twitter.
