New Mexico Lobos' Toughest Non-Conference Schedule Game

The New Mexico Lobos will have a great basketball team in the 2013-14 season. They will also have one heck of a non-conference schedule. However, which game will be their toughest?

How about the matchup against Kansas Jayhawks. Word on the street is that Kansas is a pretty good team in college basketball. Well, with Andrew Wiggins joining that should be the case once again. He is getting so much hype that the Jayhawks could be a top five team entering the season. May I remind you that they have to replace their entire starting five.

There will of course be other good players on the team, but Wiggins may be the best in the country–if he lives up to the hype.

New Mexico will also play Marquette and Cincinnati on the year. They will be challenged plenty of other times as well.

New Mexico has the talent to be a top 10 team in college hoops. It should be ranked to start the season. This is a team that is coming off of a 29-win season. The Lobos also won the MWC last season and earned a No. 3 seed in the Big Dance. They could be even better in the 2013-14 season, which is scary for the rest of the MWC.

Still, the clash with Kansas will be the toughest one of the season and the Jayhawks cannot take New Mexico lightly. If so, the Lobos will have no problem winning that game and getting a huge win on the resume.
