ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. --- We started team practices two weeks ago and they are going really well. It is so fun to have the whole team together with the coaches and start going over things for this year. We have only been going for 30 minutes four days a week and the time is flying by. It feels like we just start and then we are finished.
Last week we started working a lot on our offense and some of the basic concepts within our offense. The freshmen are doing a great job picking things up fast and catching on to the Lobo way to do things. Everyone is playing really well, it seems like everyone has already improved from last season.
It feels so good to be back on the court playing again, getting back into a rhythm and finding that groove with my teammates. We are playing really well together and working hard. It is nice having 15 players on the roster because we have been able to have 3 teams at practice, which means a lot of reps and not very much rest. Especially when we only have 30 minutes you are squeezing in all the plays you can. Our practices usually end with someone shouting "No!" or "Wait, one more play," because we want to keep playing. It's only September but I feel our team is hungry and excited to get the season underway.
Don't forget your season tickets and support us during another successful season. Thanks and until next time, Go Lobos!
