ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.— The University of New Mexico women’s basketball team will have a total of 18 home games, including seven non-conference games, nine conference games and two exhibitions, in the 2022-23 season and features several big games in The Pit.

Following two exhibition games, the Lobos will open on the road at Southern Utah on Nov. 7 before their home opener against Houston on Nov. 12. A trip to Las Cruces on Nov. 15 will proceed the first marquee game on the schedule, a home game against Arizona State on Nov. 20.

UNM will host Western New Mexico on Nov. 22 before two road games to Texas A&M-Commerce (Nov. 26) and Nicholls State (Nov. 29).

New Mexico opens December with another Power 5 opponent in Arizona, set for Dec. 4, and is the start of three-straight home games with Abilene Christian (Dec. 7) and New Mexico State (Dec. 11) closing out the homestand.

UNM will close the non-conference with an MTE that has yet to be finalized, with opponents to be named at a later date, and another non-conference game that has also not been finalized.

The Mountain West portion of the 2022-23 schedule will start at home on New Year’s Eve, as announced by the conference on Wednesday.

Of the 18-game conference schedule, the Lobos will face San José State and Fresno State just once, hosting the Spartans and traveling to Fresno State. In addition, the Lobos’ two byes will occur in the first seven games of the conference season, with the first bye on the opening day of conference on Dec. 29.

After hosting the Falcons to open conference, UNM will travel to Wyoming (Jan. 5) and Colorado State (Jan. 7) before returning home to face Nevada on Jan. 11. UNM will then travel to UNLV for a Saturday contest on Jan. 14 before having its second and final bye on Jan. 16.

The Lobos will then head back on the road to San Diego to play the Aztecs on Jan. 19 ahead of a two-game homestand against Boise State (Jan. 21) and Colorado State (Jan. 26). UNM closes January against Utah State in Logan on Jan. 28 and opens February with another two-straight games in The Pit with UNLV (Feb. 2) and San Diego State (Feb. 4).

Conference season continues with two road games at Boise State (Feb. 9) and Nevada (Feb. 11) followed by two home games with Wyoming (Feb. 16) and San José State (Feb. 18). The last three games of the schedule are at Air Force (Feb. 23), hosting the Aggies for Senior Day (Feb. 25) and a final conference game on the road against Fresno State (Feb. 28).
