TheRedMenace.com travels across the world for an interview with newest Lobo Nikola Scekic
As was reported earlier Serbian Nikola Scekic

interview for RedMenace.TV.

Being persistent I said we can do it over phone now if you
would like? Scekic said he felt his English wasn't that good
over the phone but he would be more than happy to answer my
questions via text message! Not going to lie I was pretty
excited about this as I've interviewed Lobos from Australia and
New Zealand and now we can add Serbia to our list!
What made you choose New Mexico?
New Mexico was school that was
constantly in touch with me ,they show me that they
truly want me after prep year. I wanted to go and play in
Europe but my coach from back home told me that college is best
solution for me.
What are your thoughts on Craig Neal and The Pit?
I heard all the best about Coach Neal. I cant wait
to meet him and to learn everything I can from him. I
saw some videos from arena, and it already gives me chills. We
play this sport just like others, for fans! As far as I see
people love basketball here so I cant wait to feel the
atmosphere in the arena.
