ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Steve Alford and former UNM coach Craig Neal will return to The Pit Tuesday.

Alford last coached for the Lobos in 2013 and Neal in 2017.


They faced their former team just a few weeks ago in Reno.

In just over 24 hours, the two will be back on the sidelines of Dreamstyle Arena only this time they will be coaching from the visitor's bench.

"There is so many good memories about New Mexico. Coaching against them in The Pit, which I considered a second home to me--that's gonna be a little bit different feeling," Alford said.

Tipoff for the game is at 7 p.m.
