Vladimir Pinchuk requests transfer from UNM

After spending the last two seasons as a bench player for the Lobos, Vladimir Pinchuk has opted to enter the NCAA transfer portal to finish out his final two seasons of eligibility on a new team.

Pinchuk, a 6’11” forward/center from Germany announced on his Instagram page Tuesday morning that he has requested to enter the portal.

Pinchuk averaged 3.0 points and 2.9 rebounds per game last season while shooting just 48% from the field.

“After two memorable years as a Lobo and much thought and discussion with my coaches, I have decided to enter my name into the NCAA transfer portal,” Pinchuk wrote on his IG page.

“I want to thank all of my coaches and teammates for giving me the great opportunity to develop myself both as a basketball player and as a person. I also want to thank the Lobo fans and all of the supporters for welcoming me and being there to cheer on the Lobos in The Pit.”
