what to know

New Mexico is 1-9 against the Rebels since January 2019 but will have a chance to close the gap a bit on Saturday. The two teams will face off in a Mountain West battle at The Pit at 8:00 p.m. Both teams come into the contest strong with wins in their previous matches.

Wyoming usually has all the answers at home, but New Mexico proved to be a much tougher challenge on Tuesday. They downed the Cowboys 91-73. Winning is a little easier when you make seven more threes than your opponent, like in New Mexico.

Multiple players put in solid performances to lead New Mexico to victory, but perhaps none more so than Donovan Dent, who scored 19 points with seven assists and six rebounds. JT Toppin was another key contributor, dropping a double-double on 11 points and 13 rebounds.

Meanwhile, UNLV had already won two in a row (a stretch where they outscored their opponents by an average of 10.5 points), and they went on to make it three on Saturday. They walked away with a 62-48 win over the Cowboys.

UNLV’s win was the result of several impressive offensive performances. One of the most notable came from Deden Thomas Jr., who scored 14 points with five assists and four steals. The team also got some help courtesy of Luis Rodriguez, who scored 12 points with five rebounds and two steals.

The win for the Lobos was their third straight on the road, bringing their record to 19-4. Those victories were largely due to their offensive dominance in that stretch, as they averaged 90.3 points per game. As for the Rebels, their win bumped their record to 12-9.

Some high-performance offense is on the agenda as New Mexico and the Rebels are some of the highest scoring teams in the league. New Mexico has had no problem putting up the scoring this season, averaging 84.4 points per game. However, it’s not like UNLV struggles in the division as they average 75.1 points per game. With both teams able to rack up points so easily, the only question that remains is who can run the high score.

Going forward, New Mexico is the favorite in this one, as experts expect them to win by 12 points. This contest will be their tenth straight as a favorite (they are 7-2 against the spread so far).
