Lobos Head Coach Craig Neal ready for NCAAs

Lobos celebrate making history in Vegas

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Lobos head coach Craig Neal has been preaching all season long that the journey to the NCAA tournament is 1,000 miles, and, well, that journey is finally here.

“We’ve been step by step by step and I gotta give them all the credit because they’ve been real focused. And I said, ‘you win, you advance, you win, you advance.’ They did that three times in the tournament and they did it 27 times during the year which is an unbelievable feat, and I don’t know if we’ve had an all around better team than we’ve had this year.”

This may be the year New Mexico makes a deep run, as two of the three leading scorers (Cameron Bairstow & Kendall Williams) will graduate.
