The University of New Mexico Lobo men’s basketball team made it a clean sweep in its three-game tour of Australia.
The Lobos held on, stiffening their defense with about 30 seconds remaining to top the Gold Coast All-Stars 82-80 Sunday in their final exhibition contest Down Under. Lobo Arthur Edwards forced Gold Coast’s Willie Farley to put up two long-distance desperation shots with time running out.
In their three-game sweep, former Los Alamos star Alex Kirk averaged 21.0 points per game. Against Gold Coast, Kirk scored 18 points and 13 rebounds. He also had a 26-point performance against Kilsyth, the second game of the series.
Also for the Lobos Sunday, Hugh Greenwood finished with 16 points and Kendall Williams added 15 points.
