The University of New Mexico men’s basketball team released the 2019-20 schedule on Thursday afternoon. Head coach Paul Weir said he’s challenging his players more this year and expects the team to figure out a lot of stuff before the season even begins.

“Going into this year, we expect our team to be very competitive,” said Weir regarding his approach to scheduling. “We went into it saying we want to have as competitive a schedule as we possibly can because we have a team that can probably withstand that. That can fluctuate a little bit from year to year based on how you feel about your team and where it’s going.”
