ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - There's no doubt basketball is a team sport, and New Mexico Head Women's Basketball Coach Yvonne Sanchez knows this as much as anyone else. Coach Sanchez is taking the power of teamwork and joining the battle against Muscular Dystrophy! The Lobo Women's Basketball coach is teaming up with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) in its MDA Lock-Up fundraiser.
Sanchez will be "locked up" at a local establishment in Albuquerque and will be "freed on bail" with the help of donations to the MDA.
