ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. --- The annual Lobo Howl will be held at the Santa Ana Star Center on Friday with doors opening at 5:30 p.m. The Lobo Howl is the first opportunity for the fans to see the 2009 Mountain West Conference Champion men's team, and the women's team as they prepare for their 2009-10 seasons. Both squads will participate in a 3-point shooting contest, a Cherry-Silver scrimmage and will sign autographs. The men will also have a Slam Dunk contest. The Lobo women will be front and center from 7-8 p.m. followed by the men from 8-9 p.m. The event is free to the public with no charge for parking.

Due to ongoing renovations at The Pit, the annual event will be held in Rio Rancho for the first time. The Lobo Howl marks the second straight year that UNM has hosted an event at the Santa Ana Star Center. The Lobo women's basketball team played three postseason WNIT games inside the venue last March.

Lobo merchandise will be on sale during the event through the UNM Bookstores and fans will also have the opportunity to find out more information about Lobo season tickets.
