The New Mexico Senate "Lobos" beat the House of Representative "Aggies" in an exciting "Hoops 4 Hope" game in Santa Fe. Instead of dividing along party lines, the legislature divided into the House and Senate teams to raise money for the UNM Cancer Center. Coach Bob Davie, UNM Lobo Football Coach, led the Senate to the 35-29 victory. Coach Lou Henson, former NMSU Men's Basketball Coach and a 2015 inductee into the Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame, coached the House. The House, at one point, held a commanding lead of more than 8 points but eventually fell to the Senate.
