Albuquerque, N.M. --- Celebrating Lobo men's basketball is getting to be pretty simple, as the accomplishments just keep coming. Three Mountain West regular season titles in the last four years, a 2012 Mountain West Tournament championship, and two trips to the NCAA Tournament in the last three years. Now, fans can join in that celebration as tickets for the 2011-12 Men's Basketball Awards Banquet, presented by Branch Law Firm are now on sale.

The awards banquet will be held on Tuesday, April 10 at the Albuquerque Embassy Suites, with a private reception at 6 p.m. and the awards dinner starting at 7 p.m. Scott Didrickson, color analyst for Lobo basketball on the Lobo Sports Network will serve as master of ceremonies once again. The awards banquet will showcase UNM's 28-7 team that won a pair of titles, finished with the second-most wins in school history, and was a possession away from the Sweet 16.

Fans can purchase tables for the event in two ways. A 3-Point Table includes a program acknowledgement, two tickets to the private reception, as autographed gift, eight tickets to the dinner, and two members of the Lobo basketball party will be at the table. A 3-Point Table costs $700. Fans can also purchase a 10-person regular table for $450.

Individual tickets for the event are $45, and individual tickets for the private reception at $50 apiece. Fans can also sponsor a student-athlete meal at the awards banquet for just $35.
