Lobos win, Kirk scores 11 points

-A A +A

Alex Kirk came just one rebound short of a double-double as the University of New Mexico Lobos thumped the Idaho Vandals Friday night.
The Lobos used a 19-0 second half run to pull away from the Vandals Friday at The Pit, winning 73-58.
Along with Kirk, a former standout at Los Alamos, Demitrius Walker had 19 points coming off the bench. Walker went 5-for-5 from 3-point range to lead the effort and Kirk, who has made his way into the starting lineup for UNM, finished with 11 points and 9 rebounds and 3 blocked shots.
“(Kirk) is making things hard on teams in the paint,” Lobo head coach Steve Alford said. “He is really starting to get comfortable and is really doing a lot of good things.”
The win improves UNM to 5-0 on the season.
The two teams were tied at 36 at the half, but the Vandals (1-3) moved out to a 49-46 lead in the second half before the Lobos’ big run.
Kirk said afterward there was a battle in the paint.
“I would say it’s pretty physical and they’ve all been,” Kirk said. “Some of the games at the (U.S. Virgin Islands) were physical with the different refereeing and stuff like that is something we need to adjust to.”
Kirk went 4-for-7 from the field and 3-for-4 from the foul line.
