[NEW MEXICO WOMEN] Elizabeth Lambert, the elbow-throwing, ponytail-pulling player whose behavior in an 2009 Mountain West Tournament game against BYU caused an Internet storm, will return to action New Mexico this weekend when the Lobos travel to Milwaukee for game against Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Marquette.

In response to questions from reporters on Tuesday, New Mexico athletics director Paul Krebs and women's coach Kit Vela said Lambert has served a two-game suspension and fulfilled other school-mandated requirements and moved on from the incident.

"She's doing great," said Vela. "She's got an unbelievable team behind her."

Despire repeated fouling, Lambert was not red carded in the match against BYU, but within hours after the match, broadcast by the Mountain West, clips of Lambert's fouls appeared on the Internet and were later aired on popular television sports shows and talk shows.

"The Internet and the media are great resources. The world wouldn't be where we are without it," Vela said. "But I think when something goes that viral when it was an honest mistake — and I say mistake, she was in the heat of competition — it's unfortunate that it can become that negative."
