ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.— The Lobos are expecting a fast-paced game Tuesday night against Iona.


The Gaels will come into the pit after winning their season opener against Albany.

Iona plays a similar style as the Lobos. They like to push the pace.

They even have for UNM signee Tajuan Agee on the roster.

UNM Head Basketball Coach Paul Weir expects a tough test Tuesday night.

“I think if we can get back in transition defense, particularly, right in those first three to five seconds of the clock and take away any quick packets and then defend consistently without fouling, we're giving ourselves a good chance victory,” Weir said.

Tipoff at the pit is scheduled for 7 p.m.
