It’s reasonable to say the odds will not be in New Mexico’s favor when the Mountain West volleyball tournament tips off Wednesday in Las Vegas, Nevada.
From the Lobos’ perspective, what else is new?
Fifth-seeded New Mexico takes on No. 4 UNLV in a first-round match at Cox Pavilion at 5 p.m. The six-team tournament continues with semifinals on Thanksgiving and the championship match set for Friday. (Click here for the bracket.)
The Lobos’ path to a title is challenging to say the least. Wednesday’s UNM-UNLV survivor draws top seed Colorado State in round two of the single-elimination event.
