The Lobos (4-0) pulled away toward the end of the first half as Hobson scored the final seven points to give UNM a 33-28 lead at halftime. New Mexico opened the second half with a 7-2 run to push the lead into double figures.

Hobson added 10 rebounds for a double-double, while Phillip McDonald contributed 16 points and Nate Garth had 11 for the Lobos.
