Kirk named to MW All-Academic team
Former Los Alamos and University of New Mexico standout basketball player Alex Kirk earned a nod onto the Mountain West All-Academic Team.
Kirk was one of six curent or former Lobos named to the conference team. The honor was the third in Kirk’s career, as it was for former teammates Cameron Bairstow and Hugh Greenwood.
Kirk left the Lobos to enter the NBA draft this spring. He was not claimed in the June 26 draft, but was invited to work out this summer with Cleveland.
Baseball league alumni will be in New Mexico
