ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Former Lobo men’s basketball player, Gethro Muscadin was involved in a serious car accident just outside of Topeka, Kansas, on Wednesday night.

Muscadin left UNM after their Dec. 19 game against SMU. “We spoke after SMU, and I think we both agreed it wasn’t the right fit for him,” said UNM Head Basketball Coach Richard Pitino. “We wish him nothing but the best. Hopefully, we can help him find a spot that is the right fit for him, and we’ll help him with whatever we can moving forward.”

Muscadin transferred to UNM from Kansas and in his 12 games at UNM he averaged just over nine points, five rebounds and one block per game. No more information has been released on the severity of his injuries but he is currently hospitalized.

KRQE Sports will have more on Muscadin as soon as more information is released.
