UNM women’s basketball to play difficult non-conference competition

By Matthew Salcido @baggyeyedguy

After a shortened season that only featured three non-conference games due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of New Mexico women’s basketball team finally has a full slate to go up against starting in November. The first three non-conference games of the season will be against Lamar University, Northern New Mexico College and Prairie View A&M University. UNM hasn’t lost one of their first three games of a season (not including exhibition games) since 2018, and they will more than likely beat their first three opponents this year as well. Also unlikely to give much resistance to the Lobos are the University of Louisiana Monroe who went 3-20 last year, Houston Baptist University who went 11-11 and Grambling State University who went 10-10. Looking forward to future formidable opponents, the following lists out what UNM’s biggest challenges will be as the 2021-22 season rolls through. University of Houston Cougars The first obvious challenge of the season for the Lobos is the University of Houston; Houston excelled last season, finishing third in the Southland Conference. Guard Miya Crump, who tied for first in scoring average with another Cougar player last season, is transferring to Jackson State University. Still, the Cougars have a new inside presence in 6-foot-

5-inch graduate transfer Fatou Diagne from Purdue, University who shot .544 from the field and averaged 8 rebounds per game last season. Diagne might secretly be a major problem for the Lobos this season, who will need to bring her outside the paint in order to counter her length. Stephen F. Austin University Lumberjacks Stephen F. Austin University joined the Western Athletic Conference after finishing third in the Southland Conference and going an impressive 24-3 overall. SFA is powered by their two starting guards: Stephanie Visscher, their leading scorer who is ruthlessly efficient shooting .517 from the field and .412 from three, and Zya Nugent, who averaged 12.3 points per game. In many ways, SFA is similar to UNM; both ranked highly in points per game (UNM was ninth in the nation at 81.2 and SFA was 11th at 80.2). In addition, while UNM was elite in regard to their assist-toturnover ratio, SFA dished out more assists than nearly anyone in the country. Such stats suggest that this may be the only game of the season that the Lobos may want to slow the pace of play. Texas Tech University Red Raiders Texas Tech University finished a respectable seventh in the Big 12 Conference, but they made some important moves to improve their guard play, which is their weakest area after the departure of star Vivian Gray. Bre’amber Scott is transferring

from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock after leading the Trojans in scoring average. She’s a highvolume player, only shooting 33.1% from the field to score 18.0 points per game, but her 81.8% from the free-throw line indicates that, when surrounded by better players that, shooting percentage may improve. A far more proven shooter is also arriving: Lexy Hightower, a Division II transfer who shot 44.1% from three over three years at West Texas A&M. These two guard transfers will be vital to the Red Raiders’ rebuild and may make them a more formidable team for the Lobos to face. New Mexico State University Aggies New Mexico State University had a disappointing season last year, finishing outside the top three in the Western Athletic Conference, which has been a rare occurrence for the Aggies in the past decade. Still, UNM’s in-state rival always puts on a good show, and with only one incoming freshman this year, NMSU seems to feel confident about the development of their returning players. The two UNM-NMSU games will be competitive. University of Arizona Wildcats As the first of the two biggest opponents for the Lobos, the University of Arizona may be diminished after Aari McDonald was drafted third overall by the Atlanta Dream into the WNBA, but they are returning three starters and going with an eclectic incoming class to try and replace her.

Lobos guard LaTascya Duff prepares to shoot a basket at a women’s basketball team practice at The Pit in June.

Madison Conner, Aaronette Vonleh and Anna Gret Asi form the backbone of what ESPN ranked the 16th-best recruiting class in the nation; Conner was ranked as the 29th-best guard in her high school class by ESPN and Vonleh was ranked the ninth-best post player. Asi is an Estonian 4.5-star point guard who’s been playing against adults since she was 15 years old. Even without McDonald, Arizona will be the best team that UNM faces this season and would be a remarkable win for them. The University of Texas at El Paso Miners The University of Texas at El Paso loaded up this offseason after finishing second in the Conference USA West Division. UTEP worked to add scoring in former Jacksonville leading scorer Erin Wilson, former McDonald’s All-American Adhel Tac and two-time All-Sun Belt Conference honoree Teal Battle from Little Rock. UTEP proved itself to be

a well-rounded basketball team last season, effective on both ends of the court and having a good spread of scoring load. UNM will have a chance to assert the kind of game they want, and they should. This schedule is a good mix of teams from across the Sun Belt. After last season’s conferenceheavy schedule, getting to see UNM women’s basketball play schools like Arizona and UTEP will be telling no matter the result. Wins or strong showings, especially against Arizona, will bolster the Lobos’ chance of getting selected to the NCAA tournament should they lose the Mountain West Conference tournament.

UNM women’s soccer topples formidable Washington opponent By Matthew Salcido @baggyeyedguy The University of New Mexico women’s soccer team made a statement to the entire women’s soccer industry on Sunday, Sept. 5 by beating the University of Washington at University Stadium. The 2-1 win against Washington proved an impressive feat, as Washington was ranked 19th in the nation in the United Soccer Coaches’ preseason poll. The Lobos originally went into Sunday’s match 1-2 overall after suffering a tough loss to Oregon State University on Aug. 29. The Huskies came to Albuquerque 1-3, but had so far only lost to one opponent outside the preseason top 25. The first half went scoreless as the two teams engaged in a tight stalemate. Washington took on an aggressive offensive tone, attempting nine shots to the Lobos’ six. UNM was able to keep

the game tied through good team defense without overextending their offense. The Huskies came into the second half with another forceful

offensive. UNM goalie Emily Johnson was able to nab two saves to start the second half, keeping the score tied until the 50:09 mark, when Washington

forward Katie O’Kane sent a goal sailing past her. UNM tried to respond with an attack on the Washington net, but the ball went far off the mark.

UNM tied the game at 80:20 with a goal from UNM forward Jadyn Edwards off an assist from midfielder Brynn Boeyink. Washington tried to respond, but they were thwarted by Johnson. From then on, it was either team’s game to win. As time ticked on, both teams got shots at the goal but were off target; for a while, it seemed like the game might end in a tie. But then, with less than a minute remaining, Johnson sent the ball far up field. Lobos forward Zaria Katesigwa raced ahead of the other players and scored the Lobos’ second goal, putting them ahead by one point. Washington midfielder Ameera Hussen made one last attempt to tie the game with only three seconds left but was blocked by Johnson, ending the game as a win for UNM. Johnson had a stupendous game in the net, saving eight attempts and only allowing one

Lobos volleyball rolls through Wildcat Classic By Matthew Salcido @baggyeyedguy Six games into the 2021-22 season, UNM volleyball hasn’t lost a single set, placing them at 6-0. The Lobos dominated the Wildcat Classic last week, beating the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay and Abilene Christian University on Friday and then destroying Texas Southern University on Saturday. Green Bay came out of the weekend as the second-best team, losing only to UNM and

winning both other matches 3-0. Even against a fairly strong team, the Lobos dominated across the board, besting the Phoenix in kills, assists and digs. UNM outside hitter Kaitlynn Biassou was everywhere, collecting 9 kills, 2 aces, 3 blocks and 9 digs. The main difference between the two teams came out in the defense, with UNM doubling Green Bay in blocks and netting 18 more digs over the three sets. Abilene Christian went a solid 7-8 last season and was able to make the last set against UNM a close

25-21, but their inability to defend the service was just too much to overcome. Setter Melissa Walden was good in all the matches but she dominated against Abilene Christian, getting a double-double 28 assists and 11 digs. Outside hitter Uxue Guereca was efficient and effective, getting 10 kills on a hitting percentage of 0.381. Texas Southern was always supposed to be a win for the Lobos, going a dreadful 2-10 last season. Even so, the domination displayed by UNM volleyball served not only

as an exclamation on a victorious weekend but also as a testiment to the focus of this team. A lesser squad would have been forgiven a slip after five sweeps in a row, showing some chink in the armor that betrayed their staid confidence, but there was none for the Lobos. Outside hitter Kali Wolf feasted on the defenseless Tigers, firing off 15 kills. It was all Texas Southern could do to score 17 points and hit -0.12. This Lobos volleyball team is on a run, and with no winning teams coming up on the schedule until

conference play, they may stay undefeated for quite a while longer. They’re playing against themselves, probably by the design of head coach Jon Newman-Gonchar. If they keep going undefeated, they may play better teams in the future thinking they can win every game. It would be an amazing strategy if it works.

goal. UNM may have had only a third of the shots on goal that Washington had (Washington had nine) but they got the shots that they wanted and were able to score on.

After the game, head coach Heather Dyche said that while the first half was scoreless, what she saw from her team was exactly what they needed to ultimately win the game in the second half against

a top-tier team like the Huskies. “When you have a team that’s that talented individually, to limit their shots, and to limit their ability to score, that’s what you want to do to build into the game because

that’s how you find your rhythm on offense,” Dyche said. With this win, UNM is now 2-2 for the season and will have three days to prepare for their next opponent out of state on Sept. 9, the

0-5 Northern Arizona University. Matthew Salcido is the sports editor at the Daily Lobo. He can be contacted at sports@dailylobo.com or on Twitter @baggyeyedguy

Sexism pollutes sports industry By Megan Gleason @fabflutist2716 Sexism has tainted every aspect of the sports industry and continues to do so even today. In a seemingly progressive society, we remain decades behind where we should be. Women are continuously viewed as lesser than men, and this trend in sports is something that needs to be addressed and worked on. From a local perspective, I see a distinct lack of coverage in female teams, whereas male teams are in every aspect of media imaginable. The University of New Mexico has more womens’ sports teams than mens’, so why am I only hearing about the mens’ teams? In addition, for a university that has historically better womens’ teams (just take a look at women’s versus men’s basketball if you want an example), I’d like to see more representation in the area that actually wins. Yet, when there actually is coverage of female sports, how that coverage is done is an issue, as discussed in the article “Separating the Men from the Girls: The Gendered Language of Televised Sports.” This article discusses and

analyzes the difference in commentating for men and women and, needless to say, there is a clear divide; gendered terms often pervade the womens’ world whereas men are still lifted up to be the “real” athletes. We’re living in 2021, right? It doesn’t feel like it. Women in sports are impacted by perception off the field as well. According to a study by Laurence Etling and Raymond Young in their article “Sexism and the Authoritativeness of Female Sportscasters,” both men and women found that a man’s voice was more authoritative than a woman’s when sportscasting. Along the same lines, dress also comes into play. Let’s not forget last year when Dan McNeil, a longtime radio host in Chicago, compared ESPN’s broadcaster Maria Taylor’s outfit to one that would be seen on Adult Video News, whose annual show is often described as “the Oscars of porn” according to the Washington Post. “Too often, women are subjected to this type of commentary,” ESPN said in a statement to the Washington Post. “Women in sports deserve respect for their abilities and intellect, not judgment regarding their appearance.” This statement comes despite the history of women being mistreated at ESPN; reports

of harassment and hostility have come from many different women that work at the outlet. For a female athlete, we see just as much sexism when looking at attire. When the Norwegian women’s beach handball team attempted to wear less-revealing clothing during a game (men wear shorts and tank tops whereas women are forced to wear tight bikini bottoms), they were fined a total of 1,500 euros ($1,700). This came even after the team’s petition to allow their athletes to play in the clothing they train in. Why are we policing what these women wear? From what I recall, sports is about the game, not the players’ femininity. "They define how the public see you," Olympic gold medalist Anna Watkins told BBC. "I think often it's an unintentional thing but in some ways that's more concerning as it shows an unconscious bias ... Men aren't immune from comments about their physique, such as when wearing tight trunks, but women get it more and it's more important because of the history of inequality." Going even further in the commentating world, there is still blatant disrespect shown for female athletes. According to WTVA News, commentators will more

often refer to a woman by “girl” than a man by “boy.” "I mean, if you just flipped it, and you thought about a commentator talking about (a male athlete as a) boy … it's comical,” Janet Fink, an expert in female athlete marketing, told WTVA News. This, of course, comes when the commentators can’t even remember the names of female athletes, regardless of their skill level. It’s time to stop comparing female athletes’ accomplishments to male athletes’, like the comparison of Katie Ledecky as being the female Michael Phelps. For a modern and civilized society, we’re very behind the times. It’s time to take a long, hard look at the history of sexism that still stains sports and actually get something done about it. But first, we need to start the conversation on the issue; long-term solutions won’t come until after a society-wide acknowledgment of the problem.

UNM men’s basketball player pairing could solve team’s issues By Matthew Salcido @baggyeyedguy Last year, the University of New Mexico men’s basketball team was terrible on the offensive. They couldn’t shoot, they turned the ball over way too much and their defense was poor in the backcourt. There were problems all over the roster, but the most glaring started at the guard positions, which are the most important positions in college basketball. This season won’t be perfect in that department either, but UNM does have two players

that could propel the Lobos to better offensive bliss if they can play together: Saquan Singleton and Jamal Mashburn Jr. Singleton is a 6-6 combo guard who, two years ago, was playing at Hutchinson Community College in Kansas after a solid — but not phenomenal — high school career; now he’s entering his second season as a Lobo and is about to break through to being one of the best players in the Mountain West Conference. Singleton was the secondhighest scorer per game for the Lobos last season, averaging 8 points per game; as a shooter he

was poor, shooting 41% from the field, 16% from three and 51% from the free-throw line. But while he was fairly abysmal shooting from the free-throw line last season, he was quietly one of the best in the nation at getting to the line in the first place. Singleton ranked fifth in the nation in free-throw rate, or the ratio of a player’s freethrow attempts to their field goal attempts, according to college basketball database KenPom. He drew 5.9 fouls per 40 minutes played, the 59th-highest in the country. While improving his freethrow shooting percentage will be essential, Singleton is also a versatile defender (20 steals and 15 blocks last season) and led

the team in assists last season. It would be extremely beneficial for UNM to have Singleton starting for the Lobos again. The college game typically lends itself to teams with assertive guard tandems that create shots off the dribble. Incoming transfer Mashburn is practically sure to start at guard alongside Singleton, and for good reason. New head coach Richard Pitino has praised him in the past, and he’s most familiar with Pitino’s system. Mashburn had the third-highest usage percentage last season under Pitino and is a proven game manager, ranking 237th in the nation in turnover rate. Singleton and Mashburn complement each other on

paper; Singleton is dynamic and explosive while shaky in his efficiency, while Mashburn is confident with the ball and a better free-throw shooter. Neither has ever been the No. 1 option on a team before, and for the sake of the team, neither should be the clear No. 1 this year either. If the Lobos can use both guards frequently and together, they may form one of the more exciting engines that UNM has seen in recent years.

Football fans are eager for the upcoming rivalry game between the University of New Mexico and New Mexico State University on Sept. 11 at University Stadium. The Lobos are coming off of their 27-17 win against Houston Baptist University last week; meanwhile, the Aggies are already on a twogame losing streak at the start of their season. Red Rally will preface the game on Sept. 9. This event, taking place on Johnson Field, will feature a

25-foot-tall Aggie effigy on a stake that will be burned to the ground. The rivalry between UNM and NMSU, also referred to as the Rio Grande rivalry, stems from 1894 when the two schools originally competed against each other. Last season, which was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, was the first season without a rivalry game between the two institutions since 1945.

UNM women’s swim and dive returns after season lost to COVID-19 By Matthew Salcido @baggyeyedguy The University of New Mexico women’s swimming and diving team is back after missing the entire 2020-21 season due to COVID-19 concerns. After missing a whole season, the team has changed in some profound ways, losing top swimmers but also bringing in a good mix of new recruits.

The 2019-20 UNM swimming and diving team finished eighth in the Mountain West Conference Championship, winning three silver medals and one bronze. One of the major departures from the 2019-20 team is Hedda Øritsland, who has the top swimmer for UNM in 4 of the 15 individual swim events at the conference. Returning is team captain Raine Gavino, a breaststroker who’s importance will have grown

with the new team. Newcomers include Katy McCarter, a freestyle swimmer who was rated the thirdbest in Alaska by SwimCloud, and Laura Benkova, a transfer from East Carolina University who has competed for her native Slovakia in the past.

UNM women’s cross country shows potential to win another national championship By Matthew Salcido @baggyeyedguy The women’s cross country team is always expected to be in contention for a national title at the University of New Mexico, and this year expectations are already high. UNM women’s cross country was ranked fourth in the nation by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association NCAA Division I Women’s Cross Country National Coaches’ preseason poll, behind only Brigham Young University, North Carolina State University and Stanford University. The team was also picked to finish first in the Mountain West Conference in the 2021 preseason poll. If UNM women’s cross country hopes to win their third national championship this year, they will have to follow the recipes that gave them titles in 2015 and 2017. Both championship teams were headlined by sub-19-minute50-second 6k runners, in 2015 by Courtney Frerichs who

finished fourth in the NCAA Championships, and in 2017 by Ednah Kurgat who won the NCAA individual championships. In almost every NCAA Championship season since 2010, running a sub-19:50.0 6k or better puts a runner at least in the top 10 finishers with the exception of 2017, when the championships were held in Louisville, Kentucky (a particularly fast course). Kurgat ran a 19:19.42 6k and Frerichs ran a 19:48.0 6k in their respective championships. It’s safe to say that for another championship to come, UNM must have at least one sub-19:50.0 runner in the 6k to lead them. This year’s championships will be held for the first time at Apalachee Regional Park, where six college women have run sub19:50.0 6k’s. UNM’s most obvious chance at this type of runner this year is returning graduate student Adva Cohen, who has a personal best of 19:59.4 in the 6k. Cohen’s best time would tie for the tenth-best time recorded for a women’s 6k at Apalachee,

which was run by Sara Barron of Vanderbilt in the 2014 NCAA South Championship. At the NCAA championships, Barron finished in 175th place, obviously far away from where Cohen would need to finish for the Lobos to succeed. There is reason to believe if Cohen ran at Apalachee for the championship right now that she wouldn’t place so far down. For one thing, she ran her 6k personal best at the Battle Born Collegiate Challenge in Las Vegas, Nevada against elite competition from places like Stanford and was still one of only six runners to break the 20-minute barrier. However, she does need to continue her past progression as a 6k runner; Cohen is first and foremost a middle-distance runner, excelling in events like the 3000m steeplechase, the event for which she holds the Israeli national record. For UNM to seriously compete for the national title, Cohen will need to progress, and quickly. Along with Cohen, UNM will need several other high-finishers to take the top spot; in 2015, five Lobos finished

in the top 25 and in 2017, four Lobos finished in the top 15. Last season in the NCAA championships, Cohen finished in 22nd place, Gracelyn Larkin finished 25th and Amelia Mazza-Downie finished 58th. MazzaDownie and Larkin are juniors, so improvement should be expected. The wild card for UNM this season will be transfer Abbe Goldstein from Harvard University. Goldstein has a personal 6k record of 21:03.4, but she hasn’t ran a 6k in a NCAA competition since November 2018; this was in part due to the Ivy League suspending sports competition for the 2021 spring season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Still, UNM

head coach Joe Franklin wouldn’t bring Goldstein in if he didn’t feel that she can contribute, so Lobos fans will have to wait to see just how good she is now. UNM cross country is a storied and well-respected program for a reason; they know how to recruit and develop runners. Should that be the case for this season, the Lobos will be in prime position to make it onto the podium in November and, possibly, to win it all.

Track and field to enter indoor season at UNM with rejuvenated roster By Matthew Salcido @baggyeyedguy The University of New Mexico track and field teams will have four indoor meets at home this winter, and both the men’s and women’s teams are hoping to show off some of their new additions. The UNM women’s team finished fourth at the Mountain West Conference Championship last season, while

the men’s finished fifth. The women’s lost schoolrecord high jumper Jamari Drake to the University of Georgia and conference champion 3000m steeplechase veteran Charlotte Prouse to graduation; both finished top 10 in their respective events at last season’s NCAA National Championship and will be hard to replace. Highlights in the incoming class this season include Lauren Fowler,

a sprinter and long jumper out of Alta Sierra High School. Fowler has run consistently around 11.75 seconds in the 100m, which would have put her in seventh at last season’s Mountain West Conference Championship; her personal record of 11.63, which is her most recent time, would have gotten her fourth. All of her senior year long jump distances would have placed her in the top 10 at the championships as well,

marking her as a potential threat in both events. Also coming to join the UNM women is four-time NJCAA NCAA pole vault champion Carmen Villanueva Perez. Villanueva Perez will join Shannon Fritz, who finished fifth last season at the conference championships to form a dangerous vaulting duo. The new additions to the men’s team are largely made up of sprinters, including Rivaldo

Leacock, a transfer from the University of South Carolina who was a part of the ninth-best 4x400m relay team in the country. The only non-sprinter signee, distance runner Ethan Brouw, excels in the 800m and will bolster the middistance team for the Lobos. Matthew Salcido is the sports editor at the Daily Lobo.

2021 UNM Athletic Hall of Honor inductees announced By Matthew Salcido @baggyeyedguy Just like every year since 1986, the University of New Mexico Alumni Lettermen’s Association released their list of new inductees into the UNM Athletic Hall of Honor and other special

awards. This list, announced on Sept. 3, distinguishes athletes, coaches, officials, groups and more as particularly outstanding individuals and teams. “In addition to their athletic prominence, emphasis is placed on professional achievement, civic contributions and exemplary citizenship,” the Letterman

Hall website says. Former Lobos basketball guard/wing combo Hunter Greene is one of the inductees. Greene had a stellar career, going from seldom playing his freshman year to leading the team in points during his junior season and graduating as the all-time leading scorer in Lobos

as the first women’s team to be inducted into the UNM Athletic Hall of Honor. This is the team that went further than any other, reaching the Sweet 16 in that year’s NCAA tournament after entering with the #6 seed. As is customary, the Lettermen’s Association also announced the annual awards for 2020-21 athletics year: Coach of the Year is Heather Dyche, Female Athlete of the Year is Gwen Maly and Male Athlete of the Year is Sam Choi. As 2020-21 Coach of the Year, Dyche said the most honoring part about the award is that the recipient is picked by the other coaches at UNM. She also said her coaching staff is essential to her success. “It should be ‘Staff of the Year’,” Dyche said. “I don’t do anything without (my coaching staff ); they’re unreal.” This year’s Distinguished Service Award winners are Jerry Bruckner and George Scott. The induction dinner will be held on Thursday, Oct. 14 at the Sandia Golf Club. Matthew Salcido is the sports editor at the Daily Lobo.

history. Greene is now seventh on that all-time scoring list, and is still the only Lobo to go beyond 1,500 points, 600 rebounds, 300 assists and 200 steals. Joining the hall posthumously is ’60s track and field star Clarence Robinson, a jumper extraordinaire who won national titles in both the long jump and triple jump at the 1965 NCAA Outdoor Championship. Robinson is still immortalized by his 26-foot-9 ¼-inch long jump at the Drake Relays in 1965, which was the second-best mark in the world that year and stands to this day as the greatest long jump in UNM history. Recently retired Ray Birmingham will become the third head baseball coach to join the hall after Vince Capelli and George Petrol. Birmingham was head coach for 13 seasons at UNM with only two teams under .500. Joellyn Erdmann Crooks, a former golfer for UNM who was a two-time Western Athletic Conference medalist and 1997 Female Athlete of the Year at UNM, will also be inducted. Crooks played in the Ladies Professional Golf Association in 2004 and 2005. The 2002-03 women’s basketball team will make history this year
