ALBUQUERQUE (AP) - It's a memory that everybody connected to the New Mexico basketball program is hard-pressed to forget.
A year ago, the Lobos were media darlings. They were seeded third and were a popular pick to reach the Final Four.
This from a program that had never won more than one game in any NCAA tournament.
Rather that reaching the last weekend of the season, however, New Mexico fell to unheralded and fourteenth-seeded Harvard in the opening game.
First-year New Mexico head coach Craig Neal is doing things a bit differently this year headed into the tournament.
The seeded-seventh Lobos meet No. 10 Stanford on Friday in St. Louis.
