Topic: third unbeaten team to lose on Saturday
Albuquerque, NM (SportsNetwork.com) - Freshman Sam Logwood scored 15 points off the bench and New Mexico knocked off 24th-ranked and previously-unbeaten Colorado State, 66-53, Saturday night. The Rams (14-1, 1-1 MWC) were the third unbeaten team to lose on Saturday. No. 6 Villanova fell in overtime at Seton Hall, and TCU lost to 17th-ranked West Virginia. That leaves only Kentucky, Duke and Virginia, the top three teams in the nation, still without a loss. Logwood came into Saturday averaging just 3.2 points, but made all five of his shots from the field and all four attempts from the foul line. Devon Williams added 13 points for New Mexico (10-4, 2-0 MWC), which has won seven of its last eight games. I just went in with an aggressive attitude and tried to attack the rim, Logwood said. The Lobos produced a solid win despite seeing Hugh Greenwood, the teams second-leading scorer, held to four points on 1-of-10 shooting, including 1-of-7 from 3-point range. Greenwood, though, chipped in eight rebounds and six assists. Deshawn Delaney (14.4 ppg) was limited to only three points. Daniel Bejarano had 13 points and 11 rebounds to pace Colorado State. John Gillon contributed 10 points for the Rams, who were limited to 32.7 percent shooting. Weve been playing a lot of close games, but we just broke down in areas that we couldnt afford, Bejarano said. The Lobos finished the first half on a 10-1 run to grab a 35-26 lead. Williams knocked down a step-back 3-ball at the horn. An 11-2 spurt opened a 55-37 cushion with 9:12 remaining. Tim Jacobs hit a layup to cap the rally. The Rams then never closed the deficit into single digits. Game Notes New Mexico held a 17-4 edge in fast break points and 42-16 advantage in the paint ... The Lobos shot 51 percent ...

NASHVILLE -- Predators captain Shea Weber is day to day with an upper body injury and did not skate Thursday in Nashvilles first practice since the defenceman was hurt. Weber left Tuesday nights 4-3 win at Winnipeg 3:28 into the third period and did not return. The Predators took Wednesday off, and Weber was not seen in the locker room after practice Thursday. The defenceman is the Predators second-leading scorer with 36 points, and he also is alternate captain for the Canadian Olympic hockey team for the Sochi Olympics. The two-time Norris Trophy finalist and 2010 Olympic gold medallist has missed only three games this season after taking a puck to the face Nov. 28. If Weber cant play against the New Jersey Devils on Friday night or Saturday night in St. Louis, that leaves the Predators with very little experience on defence. "Its a big deal if he doesnt play," Nashville coach Barry Trotz said. "Its a huge hole we have tto fill.dddddddddddd" Michael Del Zotto is the most experienced defenceman currently on the roster, and Nashville just traded for him Jan. 22 in a deal sending Kevin Klein to the Rangers. Del Zotto is closing in on 300 career NHL games, and Roman Josi is the next closest defenceman with 145 games in the league. Ryan Ellis has 117 NHL games, and then theres rookie Seth Jones. "Its a young group," Trotz said. The Predators currently have 56 points and trail the Vancouver Canucks by seven points for the final wild card slot in the Western Conference. Nashville has four games left before the Olympic break. "Its definitely tough when you lose a guy like him," Jones said of Weber. "Anyone its tough, but especially him. Hes our leader. He kind of makes us go ... Without him, itll definitely be tough. But other guys on the D corps and the team will definitely step up." ' ' '
