Big runs by UMass sink Lobos

-A A +A

If you look at Alex Kirk’s stat line and consider the University of New Mexico set a school record in blocked shots, you would think the 81-65 score Friday in the Charleston Classic leaned heavily toward Lobos.
It didn’t.
Despite a career-high 32 points from UNM’s 7-footer and despite 12 blocked shots by UNM, the Lobos were dumped into the consolation bracket thanks to a 16-point non-conference loss to UMass.  The Lobos play Davidson at 10 a.m. Sunday. Davidson fell to Clemson 85-54 Friday night.
“Alex played one of the best games I’ve ever seen him play,” said Lobo head coach Craig Neal. “He went into beast mode and they couldn’t stop him.”
The Lobos needed Kirk to play like a beast on Friday in Charleston.  Not too many other Lobos came with their A games probably, in part, a product of their tiring double-overtime win over Alabama-Birmingham Thursday.
“I’m not making an excuse for our guys,” said Neal of the possibility his Lobos were a little leg weary. “I thought I had them prepared for the press, but we didn’t handle it very well.”
