On February 27 New Mexico State’s game at Utah Valley ended in violent fashion, with some of the Wolverine fans who rushed the court to celebrate their team’s overtime victory getting in a fight with some NMSU players. One of the players involved was guard K.C. Ross-Miller, who hit Utah Valley’s Holton Hunsaker with the basketball just after time expired.
For his actions Ross-Miller was originally suspended for two games, but that contest would end up being his final game of the season. And according to a report from Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com Ross-Miller’s New Mexico State career has come to an end, as he’ll transfer and will be eligible to play next season.
As a redshirt sophomore Ross-Miller started in 20 of the 30 games he played, averaging 8.3 points and 3.5 assists per contest. Ross-Miller, who at one point in time verbally committed to attend Kentucky (during the Billy Gillispie era), shot 43.7% from the field and 39.3% from beyond the arc. His best individual performance came in a win at UTEP in late November, as he accounted for 26 points, six assists and just two turnovers.
Without Ross-Miller even more of the playmaking responsibilities fell upon the shoulders of guard Daniel Mullings, who won WAC Player of the Year honors. Mullings, who will be a senior next season, averaged 16.8 points, 4.9 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game as a junior. In addition to Mullings the Aggies are expected to return DK Eldridge, who won WAC Newcomer of the Year honors, and underclassmen Ian Baker and Travon Landry.
