Elijah Brown will be looking to make a big splash in his final year of amateur eligibility.
The graduate-transfer student has decided that he will be looking to play elsewhere to close out his collegiate basketball career; it will be his third program overall.
Brown took to Twitter to share his decision.

Kind of a dig at Lobo’s basketball, right?
“I’m sorry we didn’t have the success you guys deserved and I feel real bad about that. But nothing can change the tradition of Lobo’s basketball is.” And what is that tradition? According to the statement immediately prior, it’s not finding success. Apparently nothing can change that tradition, either.
Not even Brown’s 18.8 points per game this season.
Brown was an excellent player for the Lobo’s but there really isn’t any other way to look at this; he is jumping ship. Is New Mexico a basketball powerhouse? No. Certainly and obviously, no. But neither is Brown. With only one year of eligibility left, teams for the most part know what Brown is capable of doing. He likely isn’t going to make a splash in the NBA, maybe sit at the end of the bench for a couple years then start coaching at his high-school. This appears to be a pointless transfer.
Stick with your team, man. And don’t call their tradition a hopeless failure, either.
