New Mexico State on the verge of losing Pope
Posted on: August 28, 2008 5:54 pm
Herb Pope has been granted a release from New Mexico State and is considering a transfer.
I think I'll have more thoughts on this subject later, like on Friday.
But either way, it's gonna be tough on second-year coach Marvin Menzies if he loses his most-talented player less than three months before the season. Pope averaged 11.1 points and 6.8 rebounds per game as a freshman in 2007-08. But the most telling stat was that New Mexico State went 9-10 before Pope joined the team and 12-4 with him in the lineup.
For what it's worth, Pope has already visited Seton Hall.
Sources claim that is his likely destination, assuming he leaves NMSU.
