The 2012-13 Lobos finished the season 17-14, which included a six-win improvement from the year before. The Cherry & Silver accomplished some program history this season by becoming the first team, since joining the Mountain West, to win four-straight conference road games in a season. The Lobos also defeated UNLV in the Mountain West Tournament Quarterfinals and have now won at least one game in each of the last seven Mountain West Tournaments.
Coach Sanchez and company fielded two all-conference performers. Caroline Durbin was selected to the All-Mountain West Second Team while Antiesha Brown was the Mountain West Sixth Player of the Year. Durbin also became the second player in conference history to earn back-to-back Academic All-American awards.
The team received great support at home in The Pit. New Mexico finished eighth in the country in attendance while averaging 6,450 fans. It marked the 14th consecutive season that UNM has finished among the top ten in the nation in attendance.
