ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Lobo basketball practice is open for business.


Head coach Paul Weir has three phases when it comes to practice. The first six weeks is to get in shape and instill some chemistry. The next six weeks will be fine-tuning and be focusing on areas that need to improve, and the final six weeks will be all about game prep mode.

"We have put a really good foundation as far a work ethic standpoint, a workload standpoint, from a team camaraderie -- a very connected group of young men who will play really hard and will have the endurance to play that way for 40 minutes," Weir said.

When the Lobos move their game to The Pit, they will have a new floor. With the help of Dreamstyle Remodeling, Bob King Court will feature an all cherry key with "New Mexico" on one baseline and "The Pit" on the other. The Lobos' first game is Nov. 11 against Northern New Mexico.

"I love the floor," Weir said. "I'm really glad Larry [Chavez, Dreamstyle Remodeling's president] got involved. We were able to use his expertise. I think it looks neat, slick, professional. "It's a good-looking floor."
