March 3, 2006 was the last time the University of New Mexico men's basketball team suited up for an official game. Gone from that team were starters G- Mark Walters, G- Jeff Hart, PF- David Chiotti, PF Joel Box… Also gone from last year's team is F Blake Harden who left the team earlier this week.
The only returning starter from last year Tony Danridge!
Exit those players and enter D-I transfers JR Giddens and Aaron Johnson, toss in JUCO transfers Jeff Henfield and Jamaal Smith, plus a group of young freshmen Derek Oestreicher, Sean Imadiyi, and Roman Martinez and you have a group that needs a lot of playing time together, to gel if you will.
TheRedMenace.com has been allowed to watch and tape the Lobo Men's basketball team play pick games amongst each other as they working towards molding themselves into a team. Now since these are summer workouts, the coaches aren't allowed to be in the building so you basically have a shirts vs. skins situation. What is so great about us being allowed to watch and tape said practices, is that we are able to share those videos with you. The loyal Red Menace fans!
We suggest that you download these videos with high speed internet as it will take forever otherwise. Thanks to the UNM coaching staff for allowing us the opportunity to bring these exclusive videos to you.
