ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.— The NCAA has denied UNM’s request to allow Carlton Bragg to play immediately.

“I think based on all the documentation we have received and I’ve looked at, the decision is shocking,” UNM Head Basketball Coach Paul Weir.

Bragg started his college career at Kansas as a 5-star recruit. He transferred to Arizona State University but never played for the Sun Devils, which was a sticking point for the NCAA.

Bragg will be forced to sit out eight games.

He will be ready to play Dec. 16 against Central Arkansas.

In the meantime, the Lobos will host the New Mexico Classic at The Pit.

Eastern New Mexico, Western New Mexico, Fort Lewis and New Mexico Highlands will all take part this weekend.

The Lobos will play Northern New Mexico in an exhibition game Saturday night. 

Weir said it’s a celebration of basketball in New Mexico.

“I think everyone feels the power of high school basketball, whether it’s the high school championships, American Indian basketball, whatever,” Weir said. “It happens to be, I think, basketball in this state is special.”

People who buy a ticket to the Lobos game get into the rest of the games for free.
