Whatever looking good in a June scrimmage is worth for a college basketball team, the Lobos know they have that going for them.
After holding a regular afternoon press conference updating odds and ends about his men’s basketball team, Lobos coach Paul Weir allowed the media to see, for the first time in many cases, the new crop of Lobos actually on a court, playing basketball.
Minus junior college transfers Tajuan Agee and Keith McGee, both awaiting clearance to participate from their previous schools, all Lobos participated in a heated scrimmage Wednesday in the Pit, which didn’t happen one year ago at the beginning of the summer.
“I’m happy with where we’re at,” Weir said, referring to the conditioning and offseason progress of the players and the fact that last June the roster was only about two thirds available. “Our workload is terrific. To have everybody here, minus those two, is huge compared to where we were at 12 months ago.”
