The University of New Mexico women’s basketball team will spend next Thanksgiving in Mexico, according to organizers of the Women’s Cancun Challenge.
The 2023 10-team event will take place November 23-25, with the Wolves taking on Montana State on the 23rd, on Thanksgiving Day, and Georgia Tech the following day. The games will take place at the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya in a ballroom converted to house the games.
The event will be organized by Triple Crown Sports.
By 2023, the four-team Mayan Division will feature Green Bay, Maryland, UMass and Washington State. These squads will play a three-game round robin at the event. In the Riviera Division, six teams will make the trip and play two games in Mexico: Creighton, Georgia Tech, James Madison, Michigan State, Montana State and UNM.
UNM did not make a corresponding announcement about the event.
This year’s Wolves (10-8, 2-3 Mountain West) play San Diego State on Thursday (noon, themw.com, 610 AM/95.9 FM).
