Outlook

Abbie Letz takes the ball

 

For New Mexico to win they will have to play their best game of the season. They need to create as many turnovers as they did when they played Florida. New Mexico is very capable of winning this game and moving on to play a home game in The Pit in the sweet 16. The Lobos must find their shot from outside and must find some way to get some points in the paint where the Bears are at their best. If the Lobos can keep Sophia Young and the inside game under control they can win this game. 

 

For Baylor to win is it very easy get Sophia Young going early and get there paint presence noticed and going early. The Bears have been very average behind the arc sometimes. If they get a inside and outside scoring going watch out they could run away with the game and end the Lobo's season.  

 

Last night's win vs. Florida marks the first NCAA tournament wins outside of the Pit. If you can remember back a few years ago the Lobos went on a Sweet 16 run in the Pit, for their only other tournament wins.

Dionne Marsh with the great defense!
