ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The year he lost to an injured ankle last season will be restored. University of New Mexico sophomore guard Cullen Neal has officially received a medical hardship.

Neal was injured in the third game of the 2014-15 season. In that game the Lobos suffered a loss against Boston College in the ESPN Puerto Rico Tip Off.

At the time of the injury, Neal was the Lobos leading scorer. He averaged 17 points and nearly four assists in his only three games, shooting 50 percent from the three point line.

Neal, who scored a combined 49 points in the first two games of the season, was also good from the free throw line where he hit 17 of 20 attempts.

He will be classified as a sophomore for the 2015-16 season.
