ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The Lobo women's basketball team is hosting their annual team camp this weekend.
They tipped off Saturday with squads from the high school and middle school level.
Varsity teams from all over the state were competing – including defending champions West Mesa, West Las Vegas, Farmington, Taos, Highland, Eldorado and several more.
It was a great chance for teams to get game experience during the summer.
"I think anytime you get a chance to play on the pit floor as a varsity coach, you've got to bring your team and allow them to see what that's like and get a feel for it," said Leroy Barela, head basketball coach at Eldorado. "Obviously it happens in June but I think it's beneficial for March."
"It's a special place to play and it's great competition throughout the state, and also with the teams from out-of-state coming in," said Manny Otero, said Manny Otero, West Mesa's head basketball coach.
"Last year at the state tournament we were a little awestruck of the Pit," said Lonnie Neal, head basketball coach at Highland. "So I wanted to make sure we got it and plus we talk about the history, we talk about all of the things that's going on at the Pit and how awesome it is for us to have it here in our home state."
The Lobo team camp wraps up Sunday.
