Former New Mexico guard Jamal Mashburn Jr. will spend his final season at Temple, he announced Monday.

Last season with the Lobos, Mashburn averaged 14.1 points and 2.1 rebounds -- both the lowest marks in his three years in Albuquerque.

In four college seasons, he has averages of 15.2 points and 2.4 rebounds with a 33.4 shooting percentage from 3-point territory.

"100% committed," he wrote, followed by a heart emoji. "excited is an understatement."

Mashburn's first college season was in 2020-21 at Minnesota, and he followed coach Richard Pitino to New Mexico the following season. The 22-year-old has an extra year of eligibility because of the extension granted by the NCAA to players following the COVID-19 season.

Temple finished last season with a 16-20 (5-13 American Athletic Conference) record. In his first season, coach Adam Fisher led the Owls to their first AAC tournament championship game.
