Hoops for Hope Legislative Basketball Game Nets $10,000+ for UNM Cancer Center

As I reported last week, the 2010 “Hoops for Hope” Legislative Basketball Game took place this past Friday to raise money for the fight against cancer in New Mexico. Turns out New Mexico House and Senate members helped raise an estimated $10,000-plus for the UNM Cancer Center.

Lobos The game was very close, but in the end, the New Mexico Senate team pulled ahead at the buzzer to win the game by 1 point, with a 43 (Senate) to 42 (House) victory. This is the first time the New Mexico Senate has won the competition (and legislative bragging rights) in the past 11 years. The Senate team wore University of New Mexico “Lobos” jerseys, while the House team wore New Mexico State University “Aggies” uniforms. Aggie fans, read it and weep.
