ABOUT NEW MEXICO: The Lobos come to Boise off an 84-71 win at Colorado State. New Mexico is led by Tim Williams (18.3 ppg) and Elijah Brown (17.5 ppg), while no other Lobo averages more than 7.0 ppg.
All-Time Series: New Mexico leads 8-3. The Lobos swept the Broncos last season.

MATCHUP TO WATCH: Boise State has made at least 10 three-pointers in each of its last two games, while New Mexico allows opponents to hit 9.2 triples per game. The Lobos are allowing teams to shoot 39.1 percent from beyond the arc this season.

BIG NIGHT AHEAD?: Each of the last four meetings between Boise State and New Mexico has featured a 30-point scorer, including three Broncos. Derrick Marks eclipsed 30 points in each game of the 2014-15 season. Anthony Drmic scored 30 off the bench in Albuquerque last year.

RETURNING FROM FRESNO: Boise State saw its seven-game winning streak snapped Saturday, at Fresno State. The Broncos have lost their last three trips to Fresno, but rebounded to win the next game the last two times. In 2014-15 Boise State won seven in a row following the setback to the Bulldogs.

HOLDING COURT: Boise State is 83-17 at Taco Bell Arena under head coach Leon Rice, including a 45-2 mark in nonconference games, winning 42 of the last 43. Boise State has won 60 of its last 68 overall at home.

BENCH PRODUCTION: Boise State’s bench is averaging 23.6 points per game, including four games with more than 30 points coming from reserves. The Broncos have been led in scoring by a bench player in three games, including Zach Haney and James Reid scoring 19 points apiece off the bench in the Jan. 7 win against San Diego State.

WELCOME TO THE CLUB: Nick Duncan became the 27th Boise State men’s basketball player to score 1,000 points as a Bronco. Duncan fittingly reached the milestone on a three-pointer at home against San Diego State (Jan. 7). Duncan’s 1,009 points rank No. 25 in school history.

SIXTH MAN: James Reid started the first three games of the season, but has turned in his best performances coming off the bench. Reid is averaging 9.9 points per game in a reserve role. All six of his double-figure scoring games have come off the bench, including 19 against San Diego State. He also led Boise State with 17 at Fresno State.

Late Lead Slips Away to Lobos
Elijah Brown scored 13 points in a game-ending 19-2 run to give New Mexico a wild, 80-78 come-from-behind victory Wednesday over Boise State. Brown finished with 26 points, scoring 17 over the final 11 minutes for the Lobos (16-10, 9-4 Mountain West). It was enough to offset Anthony Drmic's season-high 30 points off the bench for the Broncos (17-10, 8-6).
