The University of New Mexico men's and women's basketball teams got the 2007-08 season started at the annual Lobo Howl tonight. Both teams participated in scrimmages, while the women held a 3-pt. shooting contest and the men a slam-dunk exhibition. A crowd of over 4,000 was on hand to help bring in the new year of Lobo basketball.

Junior Angela Hartill scored six points and grabbed two rebounds to lead the Cherry team to a 19-18 win over the Silver squad in the women's 20-minute scrimmage. The Cherry team had a 9-3 advantage after 10 minutes of play, but held off a late charge from the Silver group. Silver was led by sophomore Christian Shelter's 11 points on 3-4 shooting from the field, 2-2 from 3-pt. range and 3-3 from the FT line.

Following the women's scrimmage was a 3-pt shooting contest. Freshman Amanda Best put on a show in the early rounds, hitting 22 shots from behind the arc in one 60-second session. She tied sophomore Amy Beggin 12-12 in the championship round, but Beggin took home the title 4-2 in the overtime period.

The Lobo men were introduced to a standing ovation following the women's portion of the Howl. The loudest applause of the night was for senior Tony Danridge who made his way down the ramp despite a broken leg he suffered on Oct. 4.

Senior Darren Prentice led the Silver men to a 28-24 win with 11 point, two rebounds and three assists. He went 3-6 from the field, 2-4 from 3-pt. range and 2-2 from the FT line. Junior Daniel Faris led the Cherry team with eight points and six boards. Senior J.R. Giddens led all players with four assists in the game. Giddens also put on a show in the slam-dunk exhibition.
