-A A +A

ALBUQUERQUE — Alex Kirk and Kendall Williams shared team Most Valuable Player honors, capping off the 2012-13 New Mexico Lobos men’s basketball end-of-season banquet Thursday night.
The 7-foot Kirk took home three awards, including Outstanding Defensive Player and Comeback Player of the Year, an award he shared with Chad Adams.
New Lobo head coach Craig Neal presented the awards.
Kirk and Williams provided the inside-outside combination that on most nights opponents found tough to stop.
Williams, who was the Mountain West MVP, led the team with a 13.3 points per game scoring average.  He also led the team with 166 assists, 153 free throws converted, and he was second in steals with 38.  
Williams made national news with his 46-point, 10 3-pointer afternoon in a 91-82 win at Colorado State that served as the de facto Mountain West regular season championship game and ended CSU’s 27-game home winning streak, the third-longest in the nation at the time.
Williams was an AP honorable mention All-American selection.  He also was one of 20 named to the Cousy Watch List at midseason as one of the nation’s top point guards.
Kirk was third for the Lobos in scoring, dropping in 12.1 points per game. Kirk led the team in both rebounding (8.1 boards per game) and blocks (63).
