ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – University of New Mexico Athletic Director Paul Krebs has been appointed to the NCAA Division 1 Men’s Basketball Selection Committee.
“I am thrilled to be selected, honored to be chosen and real excited to be a part of what I think is one of the most prestigious athletic events there is, the NCAA Tournament,” said Krebs.
He is the second UNM A.D. to serve on the committee. Rudy Davalos served from 1995 to 1999. Krebs said he is looking forward to the challenge. His duties will keep him busy throughout the year. He will be assigned a certain number of conferences to track and follow.
The appointment could be beneficial to the Mountain West and the Lobos.
“It provides information and intelligence and a perspective moving forward to help our league and our coaches position our basketball programs,” said Krebs. “What is the criteria, what’s important, what do we need to do to move forward and qualify teams for the tournament.”
