ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.— Lobo basketball player Makuach Maluach’s third year with UNM is off to a great start.

So far he is shooting lights out 75% from the field and over 60% from 3-point range.


The Australian junior is averaging 12 points a game while also providing a spark on defense.

Maluach admits he is not one for the spotlight but just wants to help the Lobos win.

"I don't want to be like the flashy guy but you know I just like to play defense and knock down open shots and you know just stay quiet I guess," Maluach said.
