-A A +A

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — For the second time in the last three weeks, Lobo center Alex Kirk has earned a Mountain West honor, being named Co-Player of the Week after leading UNM to a pair of home wins in its first 2-0 conference start in 11 years.
Kirk shared the award with Jamaal Franklin of San Diego State.
It’s Kirk’s second time being honored this year. He was picked for the honor two weeks ago after leading UNM to a 55-54 win at No. 8 Cincinnati.
For Franklin, it’s his fourth career honor.
Kirk averaged 21.0 points and 11.5 rebounds per game as New Mexico earned home victories over then-No. 24/19 UNLV and Fresno State.
In the Jan. 9, 65-60 win over the Runnin’ Rebels, the sophomore center hit two 3-pointers while leading all scorers with 23 points, adding nine rebounds, one block, one assist and one steal. Against Fresno State, the Los Alamos native scored 12 of his game-best 19 points in the second half, adding a career-high 14 rebounds, two steals and two blocks as the Lobos won 72-45.
Kirk, who entered this week averaging just over 11 points per game, connected on 15 of 26 shots from the field.
