Random stuff and new MBB roster up
1. They've pulled down the five sets of steel double doors that form the front of the gym and are replacing them with what looks like slick smoked glass entries. On the one hand, it's a nice upgrade, on the other hand it's another sign they've given up on Bert Ogden arena.

2. According to goutrgv, only 3.5 returning players for WBB (0.5 because one of them joined middle of last year and never played).

3. The new MBB roster is up. It's what NMSUPistolPete posted with no surprises. Looks like it's going to be mostly Levi, Varner, and Jackson. Only one genuine freshman and one DI transfer, disappointing because our best players have usually been one or the other.

Vaqueronation probably knows more. What I remember hearing is that they decided not to go through with the plan to schedule the men's basketball games at the new arena. Apparently it was just too expensive, at least for regular games.

Money aside, the university won't return to the BOA is because of all the sponsors that are involved.

What does that mean? Can you elaborate?

BOA houses the RGV Vipers (G-League and they have their sponsors). The arena management would throw hissy fits if non Vipers sponsors come in and get free advertisements.
