Alex Kirk was among three University of New Mexico Lobos to drop in a team-high 14 points in a Mountain West Conference win Wednesday.
Kirk, Cameron Bairstow and Tony Snell each finished with 14 points as the Lobos earned a decisive win in The Pit.
The Lobos (20-3 overall, 7-1 in Mountain West) only trailed briefly in the first half, but outscored the Air Force Falcons 42-29 in the first 20 minutes and cruised to an 81-58 win. The Falcons (14-7, 5-3) actually had a chance going into the game to earn a share of the Mountain West lead, but the Lobos’ balanced offensive attack was too much for them to handle.
The Lobos had five players post double-figures Wednesday. Hugh Greenwood and Kendall Williams combined for 24 points on the night as UNM shot 48.1 percent from the floor.
Lobo coach Steve Alford, whose team is ranked No. 15 in the nation, said he likes what he’s seen out of the Lobos but knows there is still a lot of basketball left to play.
