6-8 Wing Remi Barry is enrolled at NMSU and taking classes, as you probably know. Since Robert Lumpkins left the program, the Aggies have a scholarship open, which would likely go to Barry if he is cleared in the upcoming weeks. If not, he would essentially redshirt this season and wouldn't be able to practice, similar to Lumpkins, Hamidu Rahman and Troy Gillenwater when they arrived in Las Cruces. If cleared either this year or next, Barry will immediately help the Aggies from everything I've read. He had some big names after him that seemed to be scared away by academics. ... A couple of scheduling notes. Two NMSU ESPNU/ESPN2 WAC games are Feb. 23 at San Jose State and March 2 at home against Utah State at 9 p.m. ... Former NMSU player Sam Lacey, as well as recent NBA players Damon Stoudamire and Bryon Russell will be in attendance for Marvin Menzies' Open Golf Tournament on Thursday at Picacho Hills. Contact Jack Hokkanen at (575) 541-4274 by Saturday at 5 p.m. if you are interested in registering.
