The 4th and 5th seeds meet on Thursday night as the Nevada Wolf Pack take on the New Mexico Lobos on MWC tournament play.
Both teams earned a bye into this quarterfinal matchup and will have date with either San Diego State or Utah State after this game.
No at large bids are on the line here, meaning it’s win the conference, or no March Madness for either team.
Nevada Wolf Pack
Nevada will represent the visitors here as the 5 seed as they sit 10-8 in the conference and 18-12 overall.
The Wolf Pack lost the tiebreaker with the Lobos by losing both head to head meetings in the regular season. The most recent one came just last week in the season finale for both teams that decided the fate of who was the higher seed.
Again, for all purposes here it meant nothing except jersey color with the conference tourney being played at a neutral site.
The Wolf Pack will hopefully learn from their mistakes in the head to head losses this season, as it was their inconsistencies that have bugged them all year long. In the first matchup, the defense sputtered as they allowed 88 points. In the 2nd meeting it was their offense that had nothing going for them as they put up just 66 points.
Finding a median there and really stabilizing their game is an absolute must for them in this matchup.
New Mexico Lobos
Just because they won both regular season matchups doesn’t mean the Lobos can overlook anything here.
Both games were close and featured the Wolf Pack having their chances down the stretch of each game. The Lobos stopped a 4 game losing streak with their season finale win over Nevada, which was very important as it gave them a huge momentum swing coming into this one.
Had they fallen, losing 5 straight with the capper being the team you have to play, would be a huge confidence killer.
The Lobos can only go as far as G Elijah Brown will take them. The impressive sophomore averages 21.5 points per game to go along with 5.5 rebounds. Brown is seemingly all over the floor and crashes the glass as he showed that in the season finale win grabbing 8 boards. He also contributed 17 points for the Lobos.
Look for him to be the difference maker here as this team won’t go anywhere offensively without him.

Free Nevada Wolf Pack vs. New Mexico Lobos CBB Prediction:
The old saying goes, “it’s always hard to beat a team three times in a season.”
This is the case here s the Wolf Pack have been right there in both matchups. The Lobos still limp in a bit losing 4 of 5 and they haven’t been as impressive as they were in the beginning of the season.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Nevada Wolf Pack +3
This will be a back and forth game with either team having a chance late. Taking the points is probably the safest way to go here as this could be a last possession type of game.
