LAS VEGAS (KRQE) – Craig Neal and his Lobos are out.
The Lobos fell to Nevada 64-62 Thursday. The shocking result was the final blow in a season that played out like a wild roller coaster ride.
“I feel bad for the guys,” said Neal.
The Lobos got off to a sluggish start, committing three straight turnovers early. They never really seemed to get in sync. Down 63-62 with only seconds left in the game, the Lobos took their last shot.
Cullen Neal tried to hit a three from the corner only to have it blocked. That was the beginning of the end.
Guard Elijah Brown had 26 points for the Lobos on 6 of 15 shooting. He was 10 for 11 on the free throw line.
Sam Logwood was second in scoring with 16 points and 5 rebounds. It was one of his best outings of the year.
Lobos forward Tim Williams had 12 points and 8 rebounds.
Nevada was led by Cameron Oliver who had 26 points and 15 rebounds.
The Lobos finish the season with a 17-14 overall record.
