ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- The UNM basketball team will take on air force Monday night.

It's their second week in Colorado Springs. The Lobos hosted Wyoming at the Air Force Academy last week.

The stay has been a homecoming trip of sorts for freshmen Javonte Johnson

He grew up watching air force, but this will be his first chance to play against the team.

"I can expect to see a lot of three-point shooting. They use the whole shot clock. You have to be in tune, you know, the whole possession," Johnson. 

Tipoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
