ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The New Mexico men's basketball team is stuck in a bit of a rut, and things aren't going to be getting any easier.
The Lobos will host No. 23 Arizona Saturday night at Dreamstyle Arena. The last time the two teams met in Albuquerque, New Mexico was able to pull off the upset.
However, some big help might be on the way. Connor MacDougall could see his first action of the season as he returns from an ankle injury.
Lobo head coach Paul Weir gave an idea of how long a leash MacDougall will be on.
"Right now, just with our lack of depth up front, he's walking into a minimum of 10 minutes right off the bat," Weir said. "Just depending on how he is physically with all those minutes and how that happens to be, I don't think he has anything to worry about him taking four to six games to earn all those minutes back."
