Big men Alex Kirk and Cameron Bairstow had big games but got
very little help from the New Mexico backcourt as the 3-seed Lobos
by 14-seed Harvard 68-62 in the NCAA Tournament second round game
against UNM at the EnergySolutions Arena in Salt
Lake City, Utah Thursday night. The win was the first ever for the
Crimson in the Big Dance.

One UNM hoops reporter is so frustrated by the team's shortcomings in the NCAA tournament that he decided to quit his job following the team's upset loss to Harvard.
The most significant upset from the first full day of NCAA Tournament action was 14th-seeded Harvard’s 68-62 takedown of Steve Alford’s third-seeded New Mexico Lobos. A 14 beating a 3 seems like it should be a big deal. It’s a major upset and something that has only happened 17 times in NCAA Tournament history. But the definition of “major upset” changes when Steve Alford...
As the second day of the NCAA Tournament tips off, one of the main stories of the first day was another bad showing from the Mountain West Conference. Colorado St. got by Missouri, but No. 3 seeded New Mexico, a Final Four favorite for some, and No. 5 UNLV both lost yesterday. UNLV went ice cold from the field and lost to an under seeded Cal team, and New Mexico was dropped by...
There’s a big difference between a journalist and your run-of-the-mill blogger — objectivity. While journalists (generally) abide by an ethical code that’s maintained to keep the integrity of their work, bloggers tend to get emotionally involved with their subject.
Case in point is Dennis Latta, a New Mexico Lobos beat writer for Loboland.com.
According to Latta, he’s been...
Check out how excited that Harvard bro is after his Crimson upset the No. 3-seed New Mexico Lobos yesterday in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Better yet, check out young Megyn Price next to him, being all, “Cool it, dweeb.” You cool it, young Megyn Price. That man is a big ball of pure joy and he has every right to be.This is the NCAA Tournament, dammit. This is one...
Who honestly had Harvard winning in their brackets last night? Alright, if you did then kudos to you. In a truly sophisticated and methodical approach, the #14 seed Crimson upset the #3 seed New Mexico Lobos. Coming off of a 20-9 season and automatic bid for winning the Ivy League, Harvard had four players in double figures last night and no one player shot double digit free throws...
Among the provisions New Mexico gave coach Steve Alford in his brand-new, 10-year contract was a $125,000 bonus for making the Final Four.
After their latest disappointing loss in the NCAA tournament, the Lobos will save the money, but feel the pain.
Third-seeded New Mexico was handed the biggest upset on the first full day of play in the NCAA tournament, a 68-62 loss to 14th-seeded...
