Bracket projection: New Mexico
When Kendall Williams scores, the Lobos win
I love the Lobos in this tournament. I love their draw, the way they're playing and the way Steve Alford has them peaking at the perfect time. To me, Long Beach State is not the No. 12 seed that will beat New Mexico and Louisville could easily be out of gas in the round after that. I see UNM in the Sweet 16 in Phoenix.
