UNM Lady Lobo’s Basketball…Woes this year

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 31-01-2014


Basketball is big in Albuquerque, and the Lobo’s are the thing around here, especially Lobo basketball….both men’s and women’s…Our men have sell outs most games, 15,000 plus per game attending….And, get this, our women have had attendance higher than a host of men’s programs….Our men are having a great year, 16 – 4, but not so for the Lady Lobo’s.This year our attendance is down, the natives are restless and the coach is under the gun about winning. At the time of this writing the record for the year is 7 – 10. Several of the Lobo’s big players are out for the season, which is not helping things at all. But, you know what, in spite of the dismal record this year the last home game over 6000 fans showed up. That number put me to thinking about how the Lady Lobo attendance stacks up against some of the men’s basketball programs. Using the average attendance number for the 2011 season our Lady Lobo’s averaged 6763. Going to some of the men’s programs and checking their average attendance, I think those are 2012 men’s numbers, they beat Mississippi, Auburn, Georgia Tech, Gonzaga, Colorado State, UMass and many, many other big time men’s program in attendance. So, winning is important and the numbers are down, but the UNM Lady Lobo fans still back the program. Do you know a girl basketball player that is looking for a place to be appreciated. Do her a favor and have her look into the University of New Mexico Lady Lobo program. Win or lose, she will be watched, cheered and admired in The Pit. Hey, and most of the time, it is a winning program. We have had a couple of injury plagued   down years, but the Lady Lobo will be back on the winning track soon…and will continue to have a host of Lady Lobo fans.
