ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – UNM Lobos senior guard Saquan Singleton announced Monday he will be out indefinitely due to heart issues.

Singleton was diagnosed with a heart abnormality discovered when he returned from an illness. Earlier this month, he missed practice due to COVID-19 protocols.

The senior guard gave his remarks on Twitter, stating "Life is unpredictable, enjoy the good times, and never take anything for granted. Despite the diagnosis, I’m blessed to still be here and can’t wait for the opportunity to get back on the court with my teammates. It’s in Gods hands."

UNM medical staff will monitor his condition to determine a safe time for him to return.

Saquan Singleton, a Bronx, N.Y., native, is the Lobos’ top returning scorer and rebounder and led the team with 75 assists during the 2020-21 season. Singleton started every game for the Lobos and earned double-digit points seven times, after transferring from Hutchinson Community College.

The Lobos will host a free, public intrasquad scrimmage Oct. 30 at 2 p.m. The Lobos will be hosting their first home exhibition game Nov. 5 against New Mexico Highlands – and their first regular season home game Nov. 10 against Florida Atlantic. Tickets can be purchased here.
