ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- The UNM men's basketball showed off their version of the Lobo Howl Thursday night, dubbing it the Cherry and Silver scrimmage.


The Lobos went head to head with Anthony Mathis showing off his range and newcomer Troy Simons also scoring a few baskets. The Lobos press looked great and could be a real key to this season.

"It was really good to get out in front of fans, give guys a first look at the team," forward Sam Logwood said. "Obviously we have a lot to work on. It's a taste of how we want to play as a team, as a unit. It was fun for the community to come out."

All in all, new head coach Paul Weir liked what saw and he thinks he'll do it again.

"Basketball-wise, it's tremendous to get on a court with officials, with cameras, with people, with music," he said. "It's a completely different simulation than what happens in practice, and those you can get those exercises. It really pushes forward as a team because we learn about these players as individuals."
