ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Head Coach Yvonne Sanchez and the University of New Mexico Women’s Basketball program have announce that freshman Lauren Newman will undergo season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum in her hip.
Newman, one of five Texans on the 2013-14 roster, signed a letter of intent with the Lobos in May of this year after a standout prep career at El Dorado High School in El Paso.
“It’s very unfortunate for us to lose Lauren for her freshman season. She has already become an asset to our program in a matter of months since joining the Lobos. We believe it is more important to have her at full strength and will give her the season to get healthy,” said Head Coach Yvonne Sanchez.
The program will pursue a medical redshirt for Newman.
