We hired Vera Jo Bustos, Director of Operations for the University of New Mexico Lobos Women’s Basketball Team, as grandson Billy’s personal basketball trainer. Vera was kind enough to secure a season press badge for me, and I was excited to use it for the first time on Wednesday evening to shoot a non-conference game with the Lamar Cardinals at UNM’s Dreamstyle Arena (aka “The Pit” due to its below street level location). The Lobos (now 12-1 in non-conference play) won the game handily by a 90-58 score.
The Cardinals (5-5) lead the nation in steals and added 13 more in the Lobos match-up. But UNM senior Tesha Buck (#2) hit 10 shots from down town and scored 40 points as the Lobos over powered the Cardinals. Buck’s 10 3-pointers set a UNM single game record and a Mountain West Division record. The National single game record is 12 3-pointers.
The UNM Lady Lobos next game is on December 28th at Air Force.

I encourage parents of children with a love of the game of basketball to schedule a training session with Vera Jo. You will quickly see significant improvement in your son or daughter’s ball handling skills, shot making, and confidence.
