Danridge has surgery to repair broken left leg

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- New Mexico swingman Tony Danridge had surgery
Monday to repair a broken left leg, an injury sustained during a
pickup game last week.

"The surgery went extremely well," New Mexico coach Steve
Alford said in a statement. "Tony will start rehabilitation as
soon as possible. Hopefully, he will be available to us in early
January."

The 6-foot-5 Danridge, a senior, was expected to be a major
contributor as the Lobos open their first season under Alford.

Danridge started all 32 games last season, averaging 12.5 points
and 2.5 rebounds. He was a third-team All-Mountain West selection
last season and is the only player on New Mexico's roster to play
in all 95 games over the past three years.

The Lobos open practice Friday.
