The UNM vs. Nevada men’s basketball game begins at 4:05 p.m. at the Pit.  

Pre-game reception tickets are $11 per person. Pre-game reception tickets and basketball tickets are $30 per person. A pre-game reception ticket is required to purchase a basketball ticket.

Students can get their basketball tickets free (upon availability) from the Athletics Department. Students with free game ticket must still purchase ticket to the pre-game reception. Game tickets will be distributed at the reception.

Angi Gonzales Carver, president of the Parent Association said, “Parent Day at the Pit is an event that we look forward to. The pregame reception is an opportunity for families to attend with our students and to meet and connect with each other.”

Lunch and refreshments will be served, and there will be door prizes with guest appearances by Lobo Louie and Lucy.

The UNM Parent Association hosts the annual event to acquaint parents with the association, connect with UNM and to help raise funds for student scholarships.
