  • Kirk named MWC co-Player of Week
    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — For the second time in the last three weeks, Lobo center Alex Kirk has earned a Mountain West honor, being named Co-Player of the Week after leading UNM to a pair of home wins in its first 2-0 conference start in 11 years. Kirk shared the award with Jamaal Franklin of San Diego State. It’s Kirk’s second time being honored this year. He was picked for the honor two weeks ago after leading UNM to a 55-54 win at No. 8 Cincinnati. For Franklin, it’s his fourth career honor. Kirk averaged 21.0 points and 11.5 rebounds per game as New Mexico earned home victories over then-No. 24/19 UNLV and Fresno State. In the Jan. 9, 65-60 win over the Runnin’ Rebels, the sophomore center hit two 3-pointers while leading all scorers with 23 points, adding nine rebounds, one block, one assist and one steal. Against Fresno State, the Los Alamos native scored 12 of his game-best 19 points in the second half, adding a career-high 14 rebounds, two steals and two blocks as the Lobos won 72-45. Kirk, who entered this week averaging just over 11 points per game, connected on 15 of 26 shots from the field.

  • Kirk leads New Mexico over No. 8 Cincinnati 55-54
    CINCINNATI (AP) — Sean Kilpatrick had two options: Take the quick shot if it's there, drive to the basket if it's not. He caught the pass and thought he had just enough room to get the shot off. He never saw Alex Kirk's hand coming. Kirk scored 15 points and blocked Kilpatrick's shot just before the buzzer Thursday night, preserving New Mexico's 55-54 win that handed No. 8 Cincinnati its first loss. New Mexico (13-1) rallied in the second half behind its 7-foot center, who hit a 3-pointer, got a team-high seven rebounds and slapped away Kilpatrick's jumper in the final seconds. Kilpatrick passed it in from the baseline to center Cheikh Mbodj with 4.5 seconds left, then got the ball right back with the two options. "I thought I had him," Kilpatrick said. "I could have drove, but I didn't." Kirk figured that Cincinnati's top scorer was going to let it fly and managed to get there just as the ball left his hands.
