Teague transferring from New Mexico

ALBUQUERQUE -- Anthony Teague has announced that he
will leave the University of New Mexico and the men's basketball
team during the semester break.

Coach Ritchie McKay confirmed Teague was transferring, but he
declined to comment further. It's not known where Teague will go.

Teague, a 6-foot-5 guard from Cleveland, came to New Mexico from
Dodge City Community College in Kansas. He was a leading scorer for
Dodge City but never got to show his stuff at New Mexico.

In October, he was benched for nearly a week of practices after
McKay said they "weren't on the same page."

Teague played just eight minutes all season, seven of those
coming during New Mexico's 95-42 win over Mississippi. Fans had
chanted for McKay to let Teague play that night. He hit two of
three from 3-point range and finished with 10 points.
