Reserve guard may try out for CU hoops too

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Lenny Miles, a guard on last year's New Mexico basketball team, will transfer to Colorado to give football a try.

"I am going to transfer to CU and try out for the football
team," Miles said. "I also might try to walk on the basketball
team in the fall, but we will see."

NCAA spokesman Jeff Howard said NCAA transfer rules will require
Miles to sit out one season before he is eligible for both football
and basketball at Colorado.

As a freshman last season, Miles played in all of New Mexico's
28 games. He averaged 2.9 points and 1.1 rebounds a game as a
backup guard. He shot 39.5 percent on 3-pointers.

The 6-foot-2 Miles is from Commerce, City, Colo.

"Lenny has decided to pursue a different career path and we are
disappointed that he will not be a part of our program next
season," said New Mexico coach Ritchie McKay.

Miles said he enjoyed his time at New Mexico but wanted to get
closer to his home in Colorado.

Even with the departure of Miles, the Lobos remain well stocked
at the guard positions. Seven of the 14 remaining team members are
guards.
