ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- Lobo Insider Lee Faria offered his keys to a UNM victory over the Montana Grizzlies.
This will be the Lobos' first home game since Nov. 16 and the team needs to make the most of it. The Lobos have a size advantage to go early and often to players like Carlton Bragg and Corey Manigault, then the rest of the floor will open up.

The Grizzlies have a tradition of playing solid basketball. The Lobos and the Grizzlies previously met at the NCAA tournament when the Lobos were coached by Steve Alford. The Lobos have to take care of business—rebound and take care of the ball to score in transition.
"Very quick athletic team. They're going to get out and transition very similar to a McNeese State team, very similar to Wisconsin Green Bay team," said head coach Paul Weir. "Quicker, undersized athletic teams that we'll see a lot of in conference, we're obviously going off two different kinds of teams these last two games out."
Tipoff will be at 1 p.m. at The Pit.
