Semi-Professional Basketball Organization

Protect the cULTURE

our vision

The Southwest Desertcats are a Semi-Professional Basketball Organization located in El Paso, TX, established in 2019 by Founders, Samantha Stukes and Paris Wall.

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

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


This year the men's team will compete in the United Basketball League (UBL) and participate in 20+ televised games which allows us to realize our vision for not only El Paso but the entire Southwest.
