COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The Mountain West Conference released the men's tennis championship bracket Tuesday with the Lobos as a No. 2 seed. New Mexico shared the regular season title with TCU, which earned the No. 1 seed by virtue of a higher national ranking, and Utah, seeded No. 3 after the Lobos were victorious over the Utes in both meetings this season. New Mexico, ranked No. 48, beat UNLV and BYU to extend their win streak to 11, UNM's longest since 1995.

New Mexico will take on Air Force, the No. 7 seed, in the first round on April 24 at noon (Mt). The Lobos finished the regular season at 18-7 and 5-1 in conference play while the Falcons went 10-14 overall and 0-6 in conference action. The winner of the match squares off with the winner of the Utah and San Diego State match Friday at 9 a.m.

The tournament will be held on TCU's courts in Fort Worth, Texas. The Championship match is Sat. April 26 at 9 a.m.
