In a very short time new Lobo basketball coach Steve Alford has re-energized Lobo hoops in Albuquerque and this week was no different with news of UNM scoring a Top 10 recruiting class according to ESPN.
Not only has Coach Alford and Co. done a spectacular job with recruiting but they have brought a new tradition to Albuquerque called "Shirts and Skins" What is SnS you ask? Well the Lobo hoops players split up into two teams and run, some are wearing shirts, some are sans shirts.
Today 2 of the 5 recruits that have verballed to UNM paid a visit to the 505. So prior to the Lobo football game vs. BYU this Saturday we headed to The Pit to catch some SnS and to try and talk to Will Brown and Nathen Garth!
Will Brown and Nathen Garth
A hundred fans or so showed up to welcome Mr. Brown and Garth to Albuquerque and show the players their gratitude for choosing UNM and putting New Mexico in the national spotlight and obviously to watch this year's team hoop it up.
We were able to get down on the floor and talk with both Nate and Will and here are some exclusive audio clips for you.
