My guess he will ride the pine or flourish with a competent coach who knows the meaning of discipline and accountability. He sure didn't have that here
It sure would be nice to not hear anything about Neal in Elijah's leaving, with a degree by the way. I had complaints about Elijah and really think it might make the TEAM better next year.
How much eligibility does Katin Reinhardt have.
Probably Grand Canyon will come calling! Good Luck.
You could tell by the way he played during the 2nd half of the season that he'd made his decision long ago. So what that we lose 57 points a game in him, O and Tim leaving, but we're not going to only score 20 points a game without them. Scoring always comes in to fill the void.
Good luck EB
Actual college basketball talent evaluators say there will be a long line for his Services.
Best of luck to you EB! Thanks for being a Lobo and wish you nothing but the best.
Go Lobos! Go Nunn! Go Sam! Go Joe!
Good luck, you will always be a Lobo!
I wish EB the best. It's really a shame that he never got it going consistently this season. I hope can do that next year. I do hope that remaing players at the guard position seize the opportunity and step up to earn EB's spot.
Good luck to EB!

What are the odds that EB's shooting percentage and decision making improves with another coach? It's hard to say, not knowing where he is going yet, but the odds are that he will land at a place with a better coach than CN.

Can someone help me to understand what the advantage to EB is in transferring? If he staying at the college level, and all is good between he and Coach Neal, why transfer? I guess I do not understand what a different school can or will offer that a program like UNM did not offer. He was the focus of our offense and played over 30 minutes a game. Do we think he is really leaving under the best of circumstances, or are there other reasons such as coaching, fan disenchantment, etc.? It just feels bad to me whenever any player transfers.
2. Talented grad transfers are hot commodities and he will very likely go to a higher profile program
3. 2 leads to higher exposure, better chance at going to the dance, and better chance at making it in the pros
EB is not a pro player. Just a good streaky shooter. Maybe a good offensive spark off the bench for a power 5 team.
We needed to press the reset button anyway.
Harris Hunter CMac and DJ will grow up and we can be good next year, especially if 1 of the 3 bigs is ready to play.
Hope Joe is back.
Best of luck to Elijah who did many great things for UNM. That said, probably a good separation.
I suspect that he will flourish in a program where he is not the focus of the other teams defense. It was interesting to watch how hard he had to work to get a sniff of an open shot this season. Maybe he goes to UCLA or a program where there are other volume shooters. I look forward to seeing who steps up in the Lobo program next season as a reliable scorer and hope that it is about 6 or 7 that can average 10 t0 15 points a game.
"I did not handle the situation with Elijah Brown well." --Craig Neal after some loss.
I think Brown made up his mind after his infamous tweet which was that same week.
Yeah, well I don't care. I want guys who want to be here in spite of or because of Neal.
From reading some of these posts, one would think that whenever a senior graduates, the player coming up behind them never scores a single point. Players who came off the bench step up into the starting role, and pine riders step into the role they left open. Kind of always been the case ... Good luck to EB, but I kind of feel the same as Julie: I think that we'll see a better team next year.
If you have not transferred before, seems you can just go wherever.
Best of luck EB, hope everything turns out alright, thanks for being a Lobo!
