Historic Albuquerque theater requires proof of vaccination, damaging COVID check
ALBUQUERQUE, NM (KRQE) – The Lobos found their groove against the University of Denver Thursday night. It wasn’t a big competition as UNM led the entire game and won with an end result of 87-67. With such a comfortable lead, coach Pitino has been able to replace some players who don’t normally play for many minutes and many of them have proven they are worth getting more.
Forty-five of New Mexico’s 87 total points came from the bank (52%), but the majority of those came from KJ Jenkins, the red shirt’s junior guard. The Atlanta, Georgia native scored 21 points in his career, including 5-11 shots from three-point range, all of which came in the second half. The Lobos took a combined 0-8 in the first half, but that didn’t deter Jenkins from increasing his shots. “Coaches trust us to shoot everyone,” said Jenkins. “We were all good looking and some didn’t like, but a lot of these guys have the confidence to just keep shooting and go out and win.” Jenkins led the team at 25:18 in minutes and scored a team high for assists with two assists.
