ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- The New Mexico men's basketball team is coming off a 15-point win over Utah State, but three is the magic number for the Lobos.
UNM is firing up triples at a record pace. Wednesday night, the Lobos tied a 20-year old program record for most 3-pointers in a season with 301. Anthony Mathis scored 25 points, including seven 3s. Both are career highs.
"Last year I didn't feel like myself. I didn't feel like I enjoyed playing as much anymore and coach Weir gave me that back," Mathis said. "He just gave me the opportunity and I'm just rolling with it."
The Lobos don't have a game this weekend and will play again Tuesday at Wyoming.
