CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Alex Kirk had 16 points and 14 rebounds, and No. 19 New Mexico bounced back from its first loss of the season with a 79-58 victory over Davidson to take third place at the Charleston Classic on Sunday.
The Lobos (4-1) had hoped to be playing in the eight-team tournament's title game, but fell to Massachusetts 81-65 on Friday. The 7-foot Kirk took full advantage of Davidson's size disadvantage and largely had his way inside for his fifth double-double in as many games this season. It was the junior's 15th career game with double figures in points and rebounds.
Cameron Bairstow had 18 points to lead the Lobos.
Brian Sullivan had 17 points and four 3-pointers for Davidson, which played without injured top scorer De'Mon Brooks.
Davidson tried to negate New Mexico's edge in height with some long-distance shooting, attempting 20 3-pointers in the opening half. But the strategy came up short as the Wildcats fell to 1-5 for the second time in five years.
Cullean Neal had 15 points and Kendall Williams 12 for New Mexico. Kirk added three blocks.
