Anthony Mathis donned the cap and gown of a UNM graduate on Saturday.
He was decked out in golf spikes and a cherry red polo shirt as he teed it up Monday afternoon at the Sandia Golf Club as part of Lobo basketball’s annual 6th Man Club fundraiser golf tournament as the only current – yes, current – basketball player in the event.
In between, the West Linn, Ore., native spoke publicly Monday morning for the first time since the unexpected NCAA ruling on April 17 that gave the Lobos’ leading scorer a fifth season of playing eligibility for undisclosed reasons.
UNM Lobo senior guard, and weekend graduate, Anthony @mathis290 talked to reporters Monday at the Journal offices about his waiver to play another season and the team’s outlook for the 2019-20 season ahead. #mwbb pic.twitter.com/fyqD4J2Bno
