Lobos forward Carlton Bragg is returning for his senior season of basketball at the University of New Mexico. Bragg announced his decision on his Twitter page this morning. Bragg said he wanted to finish what he started.
He stressed the importance of academics and said he believes UNM supports student athletes in that area very well. Bragg transferred to New Mexico from Arizona State.
Prior to that, the 2015 McDonald’s All American was at Kansas, where he started his collegiate career. Bragg averaged over 10.5 points and 8.8 rebounds for the Lobos last season.
He also had 29 blocks. The only Lobo that has decided to test the NBA draft waters is guard and forward Vance Jackson, who played some of his best basketball during the Mountain West Tournament, making the all-tournament team.
