 ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- The NCAA allowed college basketball teams to begin practice on Wednesday.

The Lobos are among the teams which resumed practice. 


Unlike the Lobos, the New Mexico State University Aggies are still practicing in small groups. 

The team still needs to lay out a COVID-safe plan that would need to be approved by the governor.

Once that process is completed, Coach Chris Jans said the biggest challenge will be putting a schedule together.

"Any coach in America gets on some kind of interview, and says they love scheduling, it's a joy, and they get so much out of it, and you don't hear that now," Jans said. "It's just a different game, you know? Everyone's scheduling and it's the middle of October. More people are not done with their schedule than they are done, and I think it's going to go into November."

The NCAA plans to kickoff the college basketball season Nov. 25.
