Lobo women’s basketball, volleyball pleased with recruiting classes

Local Sports

Mike Bradbury is excited about the future. The University of New Mexico women’s basketball coach has, for the third consecutive time, recruited a top 30 class.

Bradbury says having a top 30 team three years in a row gives the program a chance of being really solid.

He said the Lobos went strictly for need as they picked up a pair of forwards and a pair of guards. 

“It’s the first time in 20 years that I got our number one target in each position and that very rarely ever happens,” said Bradbury.

Bradbury and his team will host Hartford in the consolation round of the Preseason WNIT Sunday.

UNM volleyball coach Jeff Nelson has three players that will help his team a great deal. Nelson signed a pair of players with extensive international experience.

Fanny Skogsford is a 6-foot-4-inch middle blocker who has played for the Swedish National Team. Uxue Guereca is a 5-foot-9 attacker who has played for the Mexican National Team since she was 15 years old.

The Lobos also picked up the state of Nevada Player of the Year in 5-foot-9 attacker Kaitlynn Biassou.

“I don’t think there is a class I have ever been more excited about,” said Nelson.

The Lobos are wrapping up their regular season this week on the road at Wyoming and Colorado State.
