Albuquerque plans median installation for Rio Grande

ALBUQUERQUE, NM (KRQE) – Richard Pitino celebrated his first regular season win as the head coach of the University of New Mexico Lobos. The Lobos defeated Florida Atlantic University 99:92 at The Pit in Albuquerque on Wednesday night.

Point Guard Jaelen House scored 30 points in the game and brought energy to the Lobos and fans at The Pit. “I think the crowd helped a lot,” said House. “I mean, there was a point in the game where we were down and we were running and the crowd started to make us feel more about it.” Pitino was pleased with the performance of his young point guard. “I think he’ll be a Lobo favorite, I really do,” said Pitino. “I mean, he plays so hard, he plays with so much confidence and energy. I wouldn’t be surprised if he got a lot of standing ovations.” Five Lobos scored double digits. Jay Allen Tovar and Gethro Muscadin both finished the night with 18 points while Jamal Mashburn Jr. had 14 points, followed by 10 points from KJ Jenkins.
