The Southwest Desertcats are a Semi-Professional Basketball Organization located in El Paso, TX, established in 2019 by Owner/GM, Samantha Stukes and former Desertcats Head Coach, Paris Wall.

The mission is to seek next-level exposure for SWC athletes. This exposure leads to opportunities for our men and women to land contracts overseas, into professional feeder leagues (GLeague), and the NBA/WNBA.


The SWC vision is to establish a winning culture within the organization while aiding and supporting the community of El Paso.


As we move into our 2020-2021 campaign, we will have teams competing in the American Basketball Association (ABA) and the Women's Basketball Development Association  (WBDA ) allowing us to realize our vision for not only El Paso but the entire Southwest.
