ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - UNM Athletics and the #23 nationally ranked Lobo women's basketball program have created for the first time a new student section at all women's basketball games with four promotional days starting with the November 17th game versus The University of Texas Longhorns. Additionally, UNM Athletics will giveaway free food, an airline ticket on Southwest Airlines, t-shirts and other Lobo Gear.

Texas, November 17, 2006, 7pm, FREE T-SHIRTS
NMSU, December 2, 2006, 7pm, FREE SWA TICKET
UNLV, January 27, 2007, 7pm

With over 10,300 fans per game the Lobo women's basketball team was 4th in the nation in average attendance behind Tennessee, UConn and Texas Tech. Under Head Coach Don Flanagan's leadership, attendance for women's basketball has increased almost every year since 1995.

"We have a great home court advantage with our fans, but we would like to get the students more involved and be apart of Lobo women's basketball," Flanagan said. "We want to be number one in the nation in attendance".

Tickets may be picked up at the UNM Ticket Office at The Pit or the UNM Bookstore ticket office.
