ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – UNM Lobos sophomore center Gethro Muscadin has left the men’s basketball program. Head coach Richard Pitino says that the big man wasn’t the right fit for the team. “We spoke after SMU, and I think we both agreed it wasn’t the right fit for him. We wish him nothing but the best. Hopefully we can help him find a spot that is the right fit for him, and we’ll help him with whatever we can moving forward.”
The six-foot ten native of Haiti transferred to the Lobos after playing his freshman season at Kansas. Muscadin played in 12 games for the Lobos, averaging 9.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks per contest. The 6-6 Lobos are hosting 9-3 Northfolk State Tuesday night.
