ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- People are recognizing the Lobos. The team earned two votes in the AP Top 25 Poll, and JaQuan Lyle was named the Mountain West Conference Player of the Week.
Lyle scored a career-high 31 points in UNM's win against Green Bay on Wednesday. He followed up that performance with 18 points against McNeese.
Lyle and the rest of the Lobos return to action on Tuesday when they take on UTEP in El Paso at 7 p.m.
"We just got to mentally prepare, physically be ready to go out there and fight," Lyle said.
