We have 3 of the next 4 on the road.  CSU, UNLV and Nevada on the road with SJSU at home sandwiched between UNLV and Nevada.  These 3 road games will all be very challenging.  UNLV and Nevada are currently competing with us for 2nd place behind SDSU.  CSU was arguably the 4th or 5th best team OOC and will be a challenge with Carvacho against our thin frontcourt. 

These road games will show how we respond with no Bragg the rest of the season and if we can make a serious push for the MWC title.

It definitely won’t be an easy stretch... If we want to compete with teams like CSU that clearly have a better frontcourt game at the moment we will have to either crash the boards even harder, start making threes, or both. If the boys can succeed at that, they’ll be well on their way to big things.

I will also add this: our last 6 games were quadrant 4 games.  Of our 17 games, 10 have been Q4  where we are 9-1, and 7 games Q3 and higher where we are 5-2.  Going by current Net rankings we only have 2 Q4 games remaining (Wyoming and SJSU).  The remaining 11 games will be Q3 or higher.  

Quadrant Count of Win Count of Loss
1 1 1
2 1  
3 3 1
4 9 1
Grand Total 14 3

Murph - are you rating our frontcourt better than CSU's?  I took it to mean: If we want to compete with teams like CSU that clearly have a better frontcourt game at the moment, we will have to either crash the boards even harder, 

Perhaps I'm wrong - but an extra comma would clarify our frontcourt is now in need of adjustments in order to compete against other teams that have strong post players (and more depth).  Of course, it's possible I'm all wet as well.

Apologize , sometimes I get to fired up!! I just believe even without "the suspended" we are still the deepest team from top to bottom in the league!!

I will not be surprised if Lobos get swept on road trip. I have yet to see this team play to a higher level that convinces me they can win these road games. With Bragg gone this makes it even tougher. Lets see what kind of heart and fire this team really has.

Losing at Q4 San Jose State doesn't set a good precedent. I'll be pleasantly surprised with a Lobo win.

Apparently you didn't see the wisconsin game, where this team could have folded, bit didn’t. 
I truly believe you are an aggie in lobo clothing! You have got to be the most negative poster I've ever seen on this site, or trm... you truly take the cake!

The crazy thing is that if we win the next four then beat SDSU we'll be pegged as an NCAA tourny team. It will be extremely difficult, just have to take it one game at a time. Hate to say it, but if Weir doesn't make the NCAA tournament this year he will be on the hot seat heading into next season.

Need to win at least 2 out of 3 on the road and take care of business at home. 3-1 would be excellent.

Its sad that you take my posts so seriously. Wow!!!! I am just saying how I feel. Yes its negative but I have high expectations for a team loaded with talent. This team IMO has the best talent in conference yet struggles with weak teams. With exception of Wisconsin game this team has underachieved this season. This team should be dominating this weak schedule with the talent we have.

With this team yes. I have very high standards for this team loaded with talent. Why cant this team play like they did against Wisconsin every game?. The potential is there.

Well, I guess sdsu would consider that underachieving.  Actually, it's amazing that we're 15-3 considering all the issues we've had both on and off the court.

I think we can go 4-0 down this stretch, but I realistically think 3-1 is more likely.  

CSU is our worst matchup imo, but they don’t play well from behind from what I’ve seen. I think we win a close one. 

UNLV at UNLV is never as daunting as it seems, but this team seems to have really put it together for conference play, especially after a horrendous start to the season.  I think we will lose this one, but you never know in the TnM

SJSU has been surprising people, but I hope we take them a little more seriously.  We should win.

I have no clue what to think about Nevada.  They feel extremely beatable.  But this one will probably be agonizingly close.  I think we can pull this one out though.  

Going 3-1 through this stretch would be pretty good, though 4-0 would be ideal of course.

Good point, these next four games are huge.  The easiest one is tomorrow night.  Hope we get the W.

CSU.... the easiest? ESPN has CSU favored by 3.5 right now.  I actually think it might be the toughest, especially since it is the first game since CB is gone again. If we can beat them with Carvacho, then we can win all four.

You lack perspective. I think there would only be a handful of teams in the entire country you would be positive about if you were a fan. Even Auburn recently squeaked by a bad Vanderbilt team at home. This is college ball and that happens all the time. Duke just lost to Clemson, a team they're way more talented than.

There's really no easy road game in conference, but the one I most expect them to win is at UNLV. Tonight will be tough but I believe in these guys.

The sun shines 300 days a years! However, we still complain about that. I feel that the doc needs to emphasize that everyone need to rebound. For the most part everyone love VJ at 6’9” 230 we will need him the most. Who on Colorado can stop him if  he play the way we know he can play! Also MM needs to get back to the MM we love. Vante Hendrick we have been told that he can D up! We have the tools to get it done, we just need the fuel ⛽️ LET’S GO LOBOS The Kid...then again I probably have no clue what I’m saying! Good fun...
