Talking Grammer, Ep. 12: Lobo seniors Dane Kuiper and Anthony Mathis

Copyright © 2018 Albuquerque Journal

In Episode 12 of the Talking Grammer Podcast, with UNM classes starting Monday, I thought I’d catch up with the two University of New Mexico Lobo seniors who are starting the last first day of a school year.

Dane Kuiper and Anthony Mathis, the only seniors on the Lobos basketball team, sat down with me to talk about their journeys at UNM so far, the season ahead and the legacy they hope to cement in their final year at UNM. They also talk about when they first played each other in the 6th grade when Anthony was living in Oregon and Dane in Alaska — who talks more trash, is Dane really a good fisherman just because he has tattoos of fish and what are their memories of the run the team went on to finish last season?

• 6:00 — What are Dane and Anthony’s expectations for their senior season?
