Four is the number for New Mexico, as it has won its host tournament, the William H. Tucker Intercollegiate, four times under head coach Millican heading into this year's event, which begins Friday at the UNM Championship Course in Albuquerque, N.M.

The Lobos are the defending champion of the event, capturing both the team title and the individual title (via Gavin Green). In all, New Mexico has won 10 Tucker titles in 58 appearances.

New Mexico is coming off a fourth-place finish at the Golfweek Conference Challenge. It won its fall opener, the Gopher Invitational, too.

Other teams in the Tucker field include UNLV, TCU, USC and Arizona State.
