ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The New Mexico Lobos landed a big-time international player in 6-foot-9-inch Vladimir Pinchuk, thanks to some interesting timing on the German athlete’s part.

Pinchuk at first was dealing with some different options – going pro, staying in Germany, coming to the U.S. and going to school while playing – which allowed the Lobos to pick him up late.

Pinchuk averaged nearly 19 points per game in the U-18 championship, and his addition completes Paul Weir’s roster.

The German gives the Lobos three bigs, along with Connor MacDougall and Joe Furstinger.
