Sports Speak Up! Readers debate state of the applications for UNM men’s, women’s basketball


Mar 18, 2023

1.) EDDIE NUÑEZ believed the NIT would be a pretty excellent idea for the UNM men’s basketball group. Quickly soon after the Lobos trailed to Utah Valley by 22 points on Bob King Court – appropriately, possibly not. Coach King is rolling far more than in his grave. two.) If the saying “it’s not how you get started out (14-) but how you finish (eight-12)” holds appropriate, then the season was fundamentally practically nothing at all additional than mediocre. 3.) Hopefully Richard Pitino and Mike Bradbury will take the “Paul Weir Pledge” – the golf clubs remain in the workplace closet till UNM receives an NCAA bid.

Can not Believe the unfavorable comments from Chris and Simon in Rio Rancho and other men and women. Guys played truly difficult, had some difficult losses and Pitino so significantly far greater than final two coaches. Appreciate my Lobos frequently.

CONGRATS TO the Lobo men’s basketball group for a great season! It is about time to commit Richard “NITino” a salary that is continual with his functionality.

AS Somebody who was born in NC and attended UNM beginning in 1979 I contemplate myself each and every a UNC and UNM fan. As such I see snarky comments produced by these who have no clue what becoming a fan suggests and it tends to make me laugh. And, playing city or county men’s league ball does not fundamentally imply that you folks know one thing about coaching a important college group so, cease. The Lobos had great year playing appropriately above expectations, they call for to be congratulated.

THE VENOM spewed by Lobo haters is fundamentally fairly amusing. No fan of a group likes to shed. Wonder how Arizona fan’s truly really feel about how their coach “failed” them in the NCAA tournament? Arizona now owns the mantle of becoming a #two seed losing to a #15 Ivy League college consequently supplanting UNM’s loss to Harvard. Get pleasure from the madness.

QUITTERS: Very good job, LaTascya and LaTora, of letting your teammates down.

SORRY TO SEE the Duff twins go out like they did I hope they are OK. I’m guessing they left due to the reality they had been fed up with Bradbury’s acerbic coaching style.


OK BRADBURY HATERS, clarify away Thursday night’s win.

— MAL, Albuquerque

KUDOS TO THE Lady Lobos for beating NAU, even though playing speedy handed appropriate soon after two of your teammates bailed on the group deciding not to play in the WNIT. A collateral benefit was some lesser produced use of players got important playing time.
