It will be 65 today in Las Cruces with increasing wind and a chance of showers. That doesn't bode well for today's baseball game vs. UNM. But, what is the impact on a visiting basketball recruit? One will be on campus today and while it's mostly about basketball (opportunity to play, reception by the players, vibes from the coach, etc.), the feel and look of the campus, pretty girls, and yes, maybe even the weather, play a part in a recruit's decision.
One of Lou Henson's early recruits from back East said he made a trip to Las Cruces in the Spring and the wind and dust were blowing like crazy. It obviously didn't deter him.
