Kirk is All-Tourney, MW Player of Week

-A A +A

Alex Kirk had a good week. The University of New Mexico Lobos, not quite as good.
Kirk the standout, 7-foot center for the Lobos and the former Los Alamos Hilltopper star, picked up a pair of honors this week. He was named to the Charleston Classic All-Tournament team for his performance in the three-game tournament, and also picked up a Mountain West Player of the Week nod, the fourth weekly honor of his career.
UNM finished third in the Charleston Classic, going 2-1 in three contests. UNM topped the University of Alabama-Birmingham and Davidson, but in between those two wins was a lopsided loss to UMass.
The loss to the Minutemen was definitely not Kirk’s fault, as he dropped in a career-high 32 points.
That loss, along with shaky defensive efforts against both Alabama-Birmingham and Charleston Southern the weekend earlier, knocked the Lobos out of the top 25 in both the Associated Press and the USA Today coaches polls this week. The Lobos (4-1) were in the top 20 in both polls a week earlier.
In the Charleston Classic, Kirk had three consecutive double-doubles and, in doing so, became the second-leading rebounder in tournament history with his 36 total boards.
