San Jose State men’s basketball will wrap up their two-game road trip with a trip to Albuquerque, N.M. as they look to rebound with a win over the New Mexico Lobos Wednesday night. Tipoff set for 6:00 pm PT on the Mountain West Network. Justin Allegri has the Spartans play-by-play call on TuneIn.
In case you missed it, you can check out Spartans head coach Jean Prioleau’s first mic-d up segment of the season.
Back to the upcoming game, San Jose State (3-19, 0-0 Mountain West) will face off against New Mexico (10-13, 4-7 Mountain West) in a conference matchup. SJSU had lost 13 in a row with their most recent loss occurring at Boise State in a 105-57 rout on Saturday. Meanwhile, UNM–like SJSU–suffered a blowout of their own 91-62 at the hands of No. 7 Nevada on Saturday.
The Spartans recently shared a fun fact about sophomore guard Noah Baumann. Baumann extended his three-point field goals made record to 20 games on Saturday. He’s only one shy of tying the record of 21 consecutive made, which was set by former guard Robert Owens during the 2009-10 season. Owens was part of the Spartans roster in 2009-10 and watched his college basketball team wrap up the season with a 14-17, 6-10 Western Athletic Conference record, but ultimately lost to New Mexico State 90-69 at the Lawlor Events Center in Reno, Nev. in the quarterfinals of the 2010 WAC Men’s Basketball Tournament. SJSU was coached by fifth-year head coach George Nessman. Nessman currently serves as an Athletic Director at Justin-Siena High School in Napa, Calif.
At the moment, SJSU is most definitely honored to host a Coaching for Literacy Fight for Literary Game to support the nationwide #Fight4Literary movement. Why’s that? Literacy among children is very crucial. Did you know that 69 percent of fourth graders in California are not reading at the grade-level? Probably not. Well, now you know!
