Corey Manigault released an apology to Lobo Men’s Basketball fans, UNM, and NMSU, via Twitter on Sunday afternoon.
The apology comes after Manigault was involved in a pre-game scuffle with two New Mexico State players on Tuesday. Here is what he said:
“I would like to take the time to apologize to the University of New Mexico, New Mexico State, my teammates, fans, and family. I know that as a Lobo player I am an important figure in the community, and I hate that I have brought any bad attention to the school and to my team. I understand that I must conduct myself to a higher standard, and in no way were my actions a representation of the Lobo community. I let my emotions get the better of me and acted impulsively and immaturely. Violence should never be an emotional outlet. Moving forward, I will do everything in my power to earn your respect back and prove that I can handle myself in a professional manner, on and off the court.”
