New Mexico’s Devon Williams’ career over after neck injury


The career of New Mexico Lobos junior forward Devon Williams is over following his being part of a frightening on-court collision in last Sunday night’s game against New Mexico State, after which the young man collapsed.

Williams suffered a neck injury and lay motionless on the floor before being stretchered off and was ultimately diagnoses with a bruised spinal cord which later led to the discovery of spinal stenosis.

The unfortunate development was announced by Lobos coach Craig Neal and subsequently reported by Rob Dauster of NBC Sports’ College Basketball Talk.

Williams started all of New Mexico’s games last season and posted 6.7 points per game. This season, he was set to serve as the Lobos’ sixth man.

New Mexico will be allowed to keep Williams on scholarship, but it’s sad that his career has to end this way. Spinal stenosis is serious, but for it to surface at such a young age? That’s just the worst kind of luck.
