The Jaelen House which is making a comeback put up a fantastic performance. Junior guard Jamal Mashburn Jr. racked up 15 points and played as steadily as a boulder throughout the game. It was a satisfying experience to come out on top.NM had 41 rebounds while UNC only had 22 and they had a 177 advantage on the offensive glass. This put UNM in the lead in points gained from turnovers 153. The Bears committed 22 fouls which the Lobos capitalised on by making 19 of 20 (95%) free throw attempts and punishing the Bears for their mistakes.
