New Mexico's Snell to enter draft

The SportsXchange

New Mexico junior guard Tony Snell will forgo his senior season of eligibility and enter the NBA Draft, the school announced Monday.

Snell was scheduled to have a press conference Monday at the school with new coach Craig Neal. Neal was recently hired to replace Steve Alford, who left to take the UCLA job.

Snell, a 6-7, 200-pound junior, averaged 12.5 points and 2.6 rebounds per game to lead the Lobos to a 13-3 Mountain West Conference record and a No. 3 seed in the West Region of the NCAA Tournament. New Mexico was upset by 14th-seeded Harvard in its opening game.

The announcement did not indicate if Snell hired an agent. He is projected as a second round pick by several draft sites.
