Bairstow and Mason again organized a youth camp and alumni game the following summer.[58] The camp was held 22–24 June 2016 at Sandia Prep school in Albuquerque, again with former Lobo players as coaches.[59] This time the alumni all-star game matched a squad of former Lobo players against former Aggie players, again at The Pit.[60] Billed as "The Battle of the Rio Grande," an allusion to the Rio Grande Rivalry, the teams included thirteen players who had played professionally the previous season, and the Lobo coaches included Lobo and ABA legend Ira Harge. The Lobo squad won a spirited game, 102-97, and J.R. Giddens was named MVP after scoring 20 for the Lobos.[61] Bairstow expressed interest in continuing the camps and alumni games if circumstances allow.
