Green Bay Phoenix vs. New Mexico Lobos

Where: Dreamstyle Arena, Albuquerque, NM

When: Wednesday, November 13, 9:00 PM. ET.

The New Mexico Lobos will be going for their third consecutive win when they take on the Green Bay Phoenix on Wednesday night.

Phoenix Going For Second Win In Three Games

The Phoenix bounced back from their season-opening loss to Purdue with a win over the Wisconsin-Stout Blue Devils, a Division III team. They will be going for their second consecutive win as well as their second win in their last three games when they face the Lobos on Wednesday.

Green Bay has been a mixed bag offensively. The team was held to 57 points by the Boilermakers in their first game and went off for 115 points in their last game. We will get a better idea of how good they are offensively after this game, but it is safe to assume that their numbers from their last game are inflated.

Cody Schwartz led the charge for the Phoenix in their last game, finishing with 17 points and 10 rebounds. PJ Pipes finished with 17 points and seven rebounds, while Amari Davis finished with 12.5 points and two assists in the win.

The Phoenix aren’t very good defensively, giving up 79 points to Purdue and 64 points to lowly Wisconsin-Stout. With the Lobos averaging over 90 points per game, they will need to play better defensively to have a chance in this game.

Lobos Trying To Stay Perfect At Home

The Lobos have played their first two games in front of their home crowd and have their next two games at home before hitting the road for two games. They will be trying to pick up their third win of the year and stay undefeated when they face the Phoenix on Wednesday.

On paper, the Lobos look great offensively, but they too haven’t played a top-level team, which means their offense likely isn’t as good as their 94.5 points per game average indicates. However, they are facing a team that hasn’t played well defensively, so they should be able to score a lot of points in this one.

JaQuan Lyle led the way for the Lobos in their last game, finishing with 18 points and four rebounds1 and four assists. Corey Manigault finished with 17 points and two rebounds, and two steals, while Carlton Bragg Jr. added 17 points and four rebounds.

The Lobos haven’t looked very impressive on the defensive end, holding opponents to 70.5 points per game. They are playing a team that has shown that it can score on bad defenses and will need to play better to win this game.
