Talking Grammer, Ep. 10: Former Lobo Alex Kirk and some general UNM hoops updates

In this episode, I talk some Lobo hoops after UNM coach Paul Weir held a mid-week press conference on the offseason state of the program and we hear from him on scheduling thoughts. But the main guest is Los Alamos High and UNM graduate Alex Kirk.

How is the former Lobos’ professional career progressing? Why isn’t he playing this weekend in the $2 million TBT event in Atlanta? Who won those heated pickup games in the Pit during his sophomore year rehabbing back from injury? And how in the world did he get lucky enough to date an Olympic volleyball medalist?

The podcast accompanies an article in the July 27 edition of the Journal that can be read here: Former Lobo Kirk won’t play in weekend’s The Basketball Tournament after all
