ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The New Mexico women's basketball team made an early exit in the Mountain West Conference Tournament, but they plan to make a run in the WNIT.
The Lobos were winners over St. Mary's and next face Rice at Dreamstyle Arena Tuesday night. New Mexico is 24-10 on the year while Rice comes to Albuquerque with a 23-9 record, having beaten Texas State for a date with the Lobos.
"At least we get to stay here and in Albuquerque," said Lobo senior Cherise Beynon. "Johnson Gym really wasn't that bad. It was really fun to play here; I think it was louder than the Pit almost. I'm excited to just stay home."
