UTPB women’s basketball team soaking up much-needed break

Local Sports

The UTPB women’s basketball team has a week-long break before its next game against Western New Mexico this Saturday.

Head Coach Rae Boothe said this break should offer some much-needed rest time to get ready mentally and physically for the next game.

“Of our 11-man roster, we dressed 10. Maybe five of those were completely healthy this week…or this past week. So we really hope that being able to rest today and even tomorrow a little bit will help us be at our best physically and mentally this Saturday,” she said.

The Falcons have already defeated Western New Mexico once this season with a 73-54 final.

Saturday’s game is in Silver City with a 3 p.m. start.
