2007-'08… The Alford Era has begun!
A guesstimated 4,000 plus showed up for Friday night's annual Lobo Howl, as Lobo fans who have been disappointed with recent performances of the men's hoops team wanted to come to the hallowed Pit and welcome new Lobo Basketball Coach Steve Alford and his staff as well as give the newcomers to the Lobo hoops program a little taste of life in "The Pit"!
Look whose back. Back again. Flan is back, tell your friends!
Part of that 4,000 plus also showed up to celebrate another year of Lobo women's hoops as Coach Flanagan has brought in 5 freshmen and a transfer of his own as the women look to remain as the elite program in the MWC.
Rather than try and write a report we put together some audio and video files for you all to download and listen to as well as watch. We hope you enjoy watching as much as we had taping and putting it all together as we look forward to another spectacular year of Lobo hoops. Thanks to Mike (he doesn't want his last name released. It is an anonymous thing I guess) for this year's Howl video
Also our own Wes Henderson was out at the Lobo Howl getting some audio from men and women's players. The Tony Danridge interview is really quick, but Tony's spirits were up and he is already working hard in hopes of playing this season.

We would also like to thank Gary Stepic of expecttowinphotos.com for allowing us to share some of his wonderful photos with all of you. We have known Gary for years, and if you are in need of one of the top photographers in the state, please contact Gary. (The first two pictures were taken by Mike the Anonymous One.)
To close out the portion of this story, TheRedMenace.com learned last night that Lakes HS (Ft. Lewis WA) guard Sara Halasz has given her verbal to the University of New Mexico women's basketball team. Wes spoke with Sara a couple of weeks ago during her visit.
