Current Records: San Jose State 7-11; New Mexico 7-13

What to Know

The New Mexico Lobos and the San Jose State Spartans will face off in a Mountain West clash at 9 p.m. ET Jan. 28 at The Pit. The teams split their matchups last year, with New Mexico winning the first 67-51 at home and SJSU taking the second 83-71.

The Lobos were within striking distance but couldn't close the gap on Tuesday as they fell 65-60 to the Fresno State Bulldogs. One thing holding New Mexico back was the mediocre play of guard KJ Jenkins, who did not have his best game: he played for 29 minutes but put up just eight points on 3-for-11 shooting.

Meanwhile, SJSU came up short against the Air Force Falcons on Tuesday, falling 63-53. Guard Omari Moore put forth a good effort for the losing side as he had 20 points along with eight boards.

New Mexico is the favorite in this one, with an expected 10-point margin of victory. They hadn't treated fans well this season, but they at least enjoy a 12-5-2 record against the spread.

With both teams hitting sour notes in their previous games, they will no doubt be looking to produce a better outcome in this one. We'll see which team satisfies their hunger and which team leaves with an empty stomach.
