Sophomore Matej Buovac is a 20-year old small forward for the NM State Aggies. He joins the team from Zagreb, Croatia. He came to New Mexico State University because he felt like it was the best place for him. The Croatian Sensation, as known by his teammates, doesn’t tie his shoes until he comes down to the floor for his pre-game ritual. Buovac can speak five languages which are: English, Croatian, Serbian, Slovenian and Bosnian and has one sister. Winning the WAC tournament has been one of Buovac’s favorite moments as an Aggie. During the 2012-13 season, Buovac played in 12 games and scored a career-high eight points during a win against Missouri State.
Buovac and the Aggies take on UTEP, Friday, Nov. 15 at 7p.m. in the Pan American Center. For tickets call the Pan American Center ticket office at 575-646-1420 or go online at www.NMStateSports.com. AggieUp!
