Another guard

The Aggies have another guard enrolled and taking classes. Depending on the NCAA, New York guard Reynaldo Walters could join the team this year, but it's more likely he will join the Aggies with Canadian combo guard Daniel Mullings next season. Walters had committed to Norfolk in 2009 but has enrolled in Las Cruces. If neither qualify, they won't practice with the club similar to Hamidu Rahman and Troy Gillenwater their first year.

Another link.

Both players fit into what has become a common practice for Marviin Menzies, who has been big on redshirting players and building with freshmen who have a year under their belt on a university before joining the fold.

The schedule is getting close, perhaps early next week. I believe the Aggies start on the road at Louisiana Lafeyette on that first weekend of the season, normally in mid-November. Their first home game could be that weekend against the TBA team as part of the Springfield tournament

Another note, Troy Gillenwater was cleared to work out individually after missing the last month with an ankle injury.

Jason-In your 7/23/10 blog, you wrote that we'd have a home game against Louisiana-Lafayette. Now it's a road game?

You're right Fred. I was told it will be a road game after all since there is apparently an event at the Pan Am on the first weekend

Why is our schedule always so late? UNM, UTEP and U of A all have their schedules already posted. Speaking of any word on when or how many tickets NMSU will be allotted for the U of A game?
