ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. --- The end of summer has arrived. I can't believe how fast it has gone. It seems like just the other day we were headed back to Albuquerque for the start of summer school, now we are headed back for the start of another school year. With the start of school comes the end of home cooked meals, laying out in the sun and sleeping in late and the beginning of early morning classes, hours of studying and tests.
But before we get sad and put away our summer books and lawn chairs, the start of school does bring about one, really good thing. Basketball season is right around the corner. So, I put together the first test of the year for Lobo fans. A test on how well you know this year's team. Don't worry, sometimes on the first day of school teachers give a "what you know test" and then at the end of the year it seems easy. So put away all your notes, put your books under your desk and get your number two pencils out. Here we go:
1. This player's favorite color is purple?
2. She said her favorite moment of the summer was playing poker with cheerios?
3. This player now lives in Alabama?
4. Has the most nicknames on the team?
5. This player holds her high school record for the best freethrow percentage?
6. This player went to Florida this summer?
7. Favorite movie is Forrest Gump?
8. Was named Ms. Basketball her senior year in high school?
9. Is nicknamed Mighty Mouse?
10. Went to New York this summer?
11. Led a New Mexico team to back-to-back state championships?
12. Has a beagle dog named Bruegger?
13. Has a brother in the Border Patrol?
14. Favorite movie is Remember the Titans?
15. Has played one-on-one with NBA all star Ray Allen?
