ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- UNM men’s basketball coach Paul Weir would like to make a decision about Byron Matos’ season within the next week.

Matos is a 6'9" power forward.


The Lobos beat out Texas Tech, West Virginia and Mississippi State for Matos.

He has enrolled at UNM, and has been cleared by the NCAA to play.

“It's his future, it's his career,” Weir said. “I feel good about it-- even if it is to play or to not play. At least he has all the proper information.”
