The annual "Hoops 4 Hope" basketball game aims to raise awareness and money for cancer treatment and research. Traditionally, the head football coaches of UNM and NMSU coach the legislators, however, this year there's been a change. Ray Birmingham, UNM's Head Baseball Coach, and Lou Henson will coach. Henson is a retired NMSU Head Basketball Coach. He led the Aggies to the NCAA Tournament from 1968 to 1970, where they made it to the Final Four.
