Mac Manzanares ’22 Joins UNM Lobos Basketball

The news of Mac Manzanares ’22 joining New Mexico’s flagship university basketball team spread to all media outlets very quickly yesterday. The graduating senior has dreamed of this moment for a while, he told KRQE. “I have imagined myself playing for the Lobos my whole life and it’s amazing to think I will be out there wearing that uniform.” As a senior, Mac averaged over 22 points, 12 rebounds, and four assists per game and helped lead our Prep Sundevils to the state quarterfinals. UNM’s Coach Pitino had some kind words about Mac joining the team, having kept an eye on the basketball star the last year and calling him a “good addition” to the Lobos. You can find more of Mac’s story on the Lobos’ website and the Albuquerque Journal has a nice write-up as well. Congratulations, Mac!
