ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — So as many area hoops fans know by now, ESPNU is broadcasting from the Pit on Friday night during the Lobo Howl basketball event, which is an open-to-the-public exhibition for University of New Mexico men’s and women’s basketball teams from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
UNM is one of nine programs across the country to have their annual October practice broadcast on Friday night as part of ESPNU’s four-hour college basketball preview show (the broadcasts will drop in and out of each of the events around the country). Former Arizona Wildcat Miles Simon, who isn’t all that fond of the Pit in general from his playing days, will be the broadcaster on hand in Albuquerque for ESPNU.
For most college hoops fans, this shouldn’t be tough. Here are the nine college hoops programs taking part (in alphabetical order) followed in random order by the names of the nine events. How many can you match with the school?
Florida Gulf Coast
- Homecoming & Hoops
Big Blue Madness
Dunk City after Dark
The Lobo Howl
Countdown to Craziness
If you can match all nine of these correctly, you get free admission to Friday night’s Lobo Howl.
