It's official.  UNM post player Ebony Walker is out for the rest of the season with a torn Achilles tendon she suffered Tuesday night against Texas.

“It’s very unfortunate to lose Ebony for the season because she was playing at such a high level for us. She has been making a big impact for us this season and was our second-leading scorer. Now we have to help Ebony through the entire process and get her ready to come back next season,” said Head Coach Yvonne Sanchez in a released statement.

Walker was averaging 12 points and seven rebounds a game before the injury.

Sanchez says the team will pursue medical redshirt opportunities for the Albuquerque native who will have surgery later this month.

The Lobos host Colorado on Saturday at 1pm.
