QUOTE FROM UNM HEAD COACH KIT VELA (vs. Washington State): "Washington State is a good team. We played well in the first half, but the goal at the end of the half took the wind out of our sails. The game was a good learning experience for us. Loyola Marymount is a different team from Washington State, but they will be just as tough."
