Fans Can Go to the Pit, Watch The Lobos at the Same Time

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Little cameras are OK. Big cameras are not. Large signs, flags and banners should be left behind. Small signs you can hold up yourself and “reflect good sportsmanship” are OK.

Beyond all that, many prospective fans at Thursday’s NCAA men’s second-round basketball games at the Pit will be relieved to know this: It is OK to bring an iPad into the building, and you can use this or another smart device to watch Vanderbilt-Harvard on the Pit floor and New Mexico-Long Beach State simultaneously from your Pit seat.

So says Greg Remington, who is running the tournament in Albuquerque from the UNM side.

There are apps for all of that, and the NCAA has made it easy enough, too. For $4, fans can sign up to partake of the buffet of all 67 games on whatever platform.

Fans, for that matter, can even bring in small TVs, but the only games on free TV are carried on CBS, which has the Aggies-Indiana game on Thursday night.

The Lobos’ game at approximately 2:10 p.m. will be on TBS.
