Sam Logwood returns to Lobos basketball practice

KRQE NM Sports Feed - December 14, 2017 - 9:03pm

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – New Mexico guard and forward Sam Logwood is back at practice with the Lobos. The senior took a personal leave of absence just before the Lobos were to play rival New Mexico State for a second time.

While Logwood is allowed to practice, he is still not officially on the team yet. “When Sam left, it was a mutual decision between the two of us,” said Lobos head coach Paul Weir. “Then at the point when I think Sam returns, it will be a mutual decision between the two of us, and that is not official by any means.”

Logwood left the team for about a week. When he left, a specific reason was not given. Coach Weir only said Logwood had gone through a lot during his career at UNM and asked that the media respect his privacy. The 3-7 Lobos will host nationally ranked Arizona Saturday. Arizona will come to Dreamstyle Arena with a 7-3 record.

It is not known whether Logwood will be officially reinstated to the team by then. Weir did not rule it out but suggested that he did not expect Logwood to play.

“All I can do is just manage the situation lead this team to the best of my ability, and right now that is basically going to be continuing to talk to Sam and kind of decide when that time may be right or not be right,” said Weir.

Logwood took a break as the Lobos leading scorer, averaging nearly 15 points per game. He also led the team in rebounds with just over five per game. Saturday’s game will be broadcast on CBS Sports Network and has a 6 p.m. mountain start time.

Teams Arrive for 2017 Gildan New Mexico Bowl

KRQE NM Sports Feed - December 13, 2017 - 10:11pm

ALBUQUERQUE N.M. (KRQE) – The teams were as usual greeted by a mariachi band on Wednesday morning, as Colorado State and Marshall landed in Albuquerque ahead of their Saturday New Mexico Bowl matchup. Both teams are 7-5 coming into this game, and currently, the CSU Rams are favored to take this game.

The Rams could be seen as having a slight advantage on the Thundering Herd as they are more familiar with New Mexico. They are a part of the Mountain West and even beat the Lobos in DreamStyle Stadium this season, but the Rams also have experience in the NM Bowl. Colorado State won the 2013 New Mexico Bowl, and a lot of the seniors on this year’s team were a part of that team that won.

“We have been to this stadium and we have been in that locker room, we are staying in the same hotel. You know that could help at the end of the day, but we are going to play 60 minutes of football, whatever it takes to beat them and there is going to be 11 on the field at a time,” said CSU Head Football Coach Mike Bobo.

Altitude could also play as an advantage for the Rams, as Marshall is used to playing in sea level conditions. “I don’t worry about that. I don’t think there is any, the Denver Broncos have that high elevation, and I’m not sure about their record this year. I don’t worry about it, let’s go out and play,”  Marshall Head Football Coach Doc Holiday said.

CSU and Marshall will kick off this year’s New Mexico Bowl on Saturday with a 2:30 p.m. start time.

Lobo Women’s Basketball set to take on their toughest challenge yet

KRQE NM Sports Feed - December 13, 2017 - 10:09pm

ALBUQUERQUE N.M. (KRQE) – The 11-0 Lobo Women’s Basketball team is gearing up for their matchup on Saturday in Normand, Oklahoma, taking on OU at 1 p.m. Oklahoma is 4-5 , but don’t let their record fool you.

“They were preseason top 20 and that’s where they will finish. They went through a few struggles there early in the year, they had some people hurt. They are plenty good, they just beat up on South Florida who was ranked 16th in the country. So this will be the best team we have played so far to date,”  UNM Women’s Basketball Coach Mike Bradbury said.

Stand out post player Jaisa Nunn was not at Wednesday’s practice. She did not finish out Sunday’s game with Navy, after an undisclosed injury. Coach Bradbury did not have a comment on her status after practice on Wednesday. So, her chances of playing this Saturday are still unknown.

Former Cowboys and Lobo great Don Perkins gets a years worth of honor

KRQE NM Sports Feed - December 12, 2017 - 10:55pm

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.(KRQE)-The County Commission announced a proclamation Tuesday making 2018 The Year of Don Perkins in Bernalillo County. The former Dallas Cowboys and Lobo star was recognized for his values of determination, humility and teamwork over a 60-year career that started at UNM in 1956. “The honor is great,” said Perkins. “I am glad to be here in New Mexico. I’m glad to have come out here and this is the reason I stay here.”

Perkins was one of two former NFL players who were once rookie of the year in the audience. Former Lobo and NFL running back Don Perkins also attended the ceremony and had kind words for Perkins. “You know Don paved the way for me, not only for me but for the other NFL players that were not from New Mexico but around the league, around the NFL,” said Woods. “So this is a great honor for Don and it’s well deserved. I’m just glad to be in his company.”

Perkins won the NFL Rookie of the Year Award in 1961. Woods won the honor in 1974. Perkins played from 1961-1968 with the Dallas Cowboys and retired at the young age of 30.

After leaving the NFL Perkins dedicated his time to community organizations that include the NAACP, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Albuquerque Police Department gang initiatives program.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – An entire year will be dedicated to former Lobo and Dallas Cowboy, Don Perkins.

Tuesday, Bernalillo County commissioners proclaimed 2018 as the “Year of Don Perkins.”

They say they want to recognize him for his values of determination, humility and teamwork over his 60 year career, since starting with the Lobos in 1956 and his eight year career with the Cowboys.

“Don paved the way not only for me, but for other NFL players not from New Mexico, but around the league. This is a great honor for Don, well-deserved,” former Lobo and NFL quarterback Don Woods said.

After leaving the NFL, Perkins dedicated his time to community organizations, including the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the Albuquerque Police Department’s gang prevention initiatives.

Former Tennessee quarterback has eyes on New Mexico

KRQE NM Sports Feed - December 11, 2017 - 11:19pm

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Sheriron Jones has seen his share of schools. National College Football Recruiting Insider Ryan Bartow said New Mexico will be the next stop for Jones. Bartow tweeted that Jones has committed to the Lobos. Jones had a visit to New Mexico this past weekend. His career has taken him to a variety of places with the latest being Mt. San Jacinto Community College in his home state of California.

Jones threw for over 21 hundred yards last season and had 17 touchdowns with a not so flattering 14 interceptions in 10 games. The six foot two 208 pound Jones committed to Florida in 2014 before getting out of that commitment and heading to Tennessee instead. He would later transfer from Tennessee to Colorado for a brief stay and then back to Tennessee.
