ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Connor MacDougall has a brand new place to play.


The former Lobo men's basketball player is transferring to Utah Valley, where he'll get to play the New Mexico State Aggies twice. MacDougall injured his ankle in an exhibition game against Brigham Young last season and never saw the hardwood the rest of the year.

He will be considered a grad transfer and will have on year to play with the Wolverines. He'll be eligible for play right away.


When head coach Paul Weir isn't working on getting recruits to town or scheduling matchups, he's thinking about season tickets. In addition to winning games, Weir has a goal of packing Dreamstyle Arena this upcoming season.

The Lobos have 17 home games on the schedule, and Weir said season tickets are the key to filling the Pit. They went on sale at the beginning of the week, and the numbers so far have been solid.

"I can give them to my friends, I can take my family, I can give them as Christmas presents. I can do all kinds of stuff for $199," he said. "I'm not doing an ad here, but I would like to promote the heck out of season tickets. I think, right now, the slate is pretty good. To have UTEP coming in, to have New Mexico State coming in, to have Colorado coming – I think those are pretty good."
