ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The University of New Mexico men’s golf team earned Golfweek.com’s Team of the Week after winning its own William H. Tucker Intercollegiate over the weekend.

The Lobos entered the final round trailing Arizona State by 11 shots but shot a 7-under 281 to storm to an 18-stroke victory.
Officially, UNM junior Gavin Green and true freshman Andrej Bevins tied for individual medalist honors at 5-under. The two had a playoff, and Green won on the first hole.
