Kendall Williams added 11 points and 10 assists and Alex Kirk had 10 points and 11 rebounds for the Lobos (24-5, 14-2 Mountain West), who remain tied for first place in the Mountain West Conference with No. 13 San Diego State.
The Lobos host Air Force on Wednesday before their regular-season finale on Saturday at San Diego State.
