The Lobos haven't suffered a losing streak this season and I don't see one now. In the losses to both SDSU and UNLV, the Lobos had trouble in the first 10-minutes of the game. In Saturday's game with the Runnin' Rebels, the Lobos were done in by the 3-point shot. New Mexico doubled down on the Rebels big men. If these two teams meet again, let the Lobos big men play Bennett and Birch straight up so the Lobo guards can stay with the outside shooters. The other adjustment has to come when the Lobos are getting into the half court set. The Rebels trapped the New Mexico guards and disrupted the Lobos offense. The one thing I have come to learn about Steve Alford is that he and his staff will make adjustments. Next up is Fresno State Wednesday night in California.
