The Pit

(On the road with the women's basketball team in Albuquerque for the NCAA Tournament)

By Barca Blog -
Here's a view of The Pit as the team arrived for today's press day and shoot around. Like Memorial Gym, it's one of the most unique environments in college basketball today.

According to New Mexico's athletic website, The Pit's pretty much built underground... "in a 37-foot hole on Albuquerque's southeast mesa. First the roof was constructed, then the hole was dug and the Arena built."

Gotta love it. Oh, and after the NCAA 1st and 2nd rounds, The Pit will undergo a massive upgrade that will include $60 million of improvements. Read more about the facility here.
