    RAYNE, La. (AP) — As the storm roared over Pauline Patton's apartment, she peered out the window and saw something she wasn't ready for: A funnel cloud. Suddenly, the power went out.

  • Men's basketball: Gary leads UNM over Air Force at The Pit

    ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Playing on a heavily taped ankle, Dairese Gary had 17 points and seven assists in his final home game to lead New Mexico to a 66-61 victory over Air Force on Saturday.
    Gary, who made 11 of 13 free-throw attempts for the Lobos (20-11, 8-8 Mountain West), turned his right ankle midway through the first half. The three minutes it took to be taped up accounted for all of his time off the court.
    It was the third win in a row for New Mexico, which beat No. 3 BYU on Wednesday.

  • Girls basketball: LA bounced by Grants in first round

    GRANTS — A quick-strike rally by the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team at the end of the first half Friday put it within striking distance of the Grants Pirates heading into the break.

    Los Alamos trailed by as many as eight points in the first half of the opening round Class 4A state tournament game against Grants, but cut the Pirates’ lead down to just one possession.

    That would, however, be the last offensive push the Hilltoppers would make for the balance of the ballgame.
