Lobos win first Aussie contest

-A A +A

SYDNEY, Australia – In the first game of its Australian tour, the University of New Mexico Lobo men’s basketball team rallied from 11 points back to win at Bankstown Basketball Stadium.
UNM trailed the Sydney Kings by a double-digit margin in the second half, but pulled off a big 87-85 win.
Both teams shot the ball well, and both teams pulled out the stops for a win.
Down eight at the break, the Lobos came roaring back.
UNM’s rally started with a Kendall Williams 3-point play, the first of 12 fouls called on Sydney in the third quarter, which worked to UNM’s advantage.
In international rules – which were used in this game – after the fifth foul in the quarter, all fouls are two shot fouls. UNM which was just 19-for-33 from the stripe, nonetheless came back to tie the game at 70-70 on two Williams free throws with 24 seconds to go.
The Kings’ Jason Harvey eventually pushed Sydney back on top with his fourth 3-pointer of the evening making it 81-76 with 4:27 left, but UNM answered with a 9-0 run to take an 85-81 lead.
It started when Cameron Bairstow found Alex Kirk for a dunk, which became a 3-point play.
Bairstow, who played for the Australian collegiate team against Kirk during the World University Games last month, then tied it up with an 18-foot jumper.
