  • Williams scores 24 despite ankle injury
    LAS CRUCES (AP) — Despite a gimpy right ankle that sent him to the bench for several minutes early in the first half, New Mexico guard Kendall Williams put on a show Wednesday night against rival New Mexico State. Williams tied his career high with 24 points, made all eight of his free throws and played 35 minutes to lead the No. 16 Lobos to a 68-63 victory over the Aggies at the Pan Am Center. With its second win over the Aggies in a week, New Mexico (12-0) equaled the second-best start in school history. Williams rolled his right ankle one minute into the game and sat out the next five minutes. “He came back and was just terrific,” New Mexico coach Steve Alford said. “Best player on the floor. Kendall Williams is extremely talented. He had a big game for us both offensively and defensively. He was a great leader. He is playing at a very, very high level.” When Williams returned, New Mexico State (5-6) was in the midst of a 16-4 run that included four 3-pointers to go up 25-14. But Williams took over at that point, scoring nine points during an 11-0 run. He started by converting both ends of a 1-and-1, then dropped a 3-pointer and hit a short jumper before capping the run with a drive through the lane.

    Ely dealt to Astros for Rasmussen The Albuquerque Isotopes, the Triple-A farm team of the Los Angeles Dodgers, announced Wednesday that the Dodgers traded pitcher John Ely to the Houston Astros. Ely, who was named the Pacific Coast League Pitcher of the Year for 2012, was 14-7 with the Isotopes last year and finished with a ERA of 3.20. He was traded to the Astros for left-handed pitcher Rob Rasmussen. Rasmussen was in the Astros’ farm system. Ely, who is 26, was acquired by the Dodgers in 2009 in a trade with the Chicago White Sox. He is 4-13 in the Major Leagues in 25 appearances and has a big league ERA of 5.70. Rasmussen, 23, is a native of Southern California. The Dodgers actually drafted him out of high school, but Rasmussen elected to play ball at UCLA. Rasmussen was drafted again in 2010 by the Marlins organization, then traded to Houston in July as part of the deal that sent Carlos Lee to Miami. In three minor league seasons, Rasmussen is 20-21 with a 3.88 ERA. He went 4-4 at Double-A Corpus Christi last year. Stubbs is team’s new hitting coach
