Women's update

Here is a story on the latest NMSU women's signee Jasmine Lowe, a guard from San Francisco that basically replaces the departed Brittany Palmer. It also includes the news that assistant Joel Washington has left the team to attend to his family in the midwest. I also learned that junior college transfer center Areyal Ledeatte will also not play next year.

Darin Spence said the women's schedule is almost complete and it includes 18 home games, which is a lot for any college basketball team and could be huge for this particular program as it attempts to bounce back from a down year. The Thanksgiving Classic includes games against Stephen F. Austin and the first of a home-and-home series against Michigan. Southern Illinois is the fourth team playing in the Classic. Kansas comes to town on Jan. 3 to finish that particular contract after the Aggies went to Lawrence last season. Other home games include Cal Poly, Cal State Northridge, Long Beach State North Dakota, North Dakota State and Alcorn State.
I believe other than conference play, that leaves UNM and UTEP as the only non-conference road games. The home game vs. the Lobos is Dec. 2
