  • LA nearly pulls off big upset

    ALBUQUERQUE — After a dismal offensive first half, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team got back into its game against the Sandia Matadors in the second half.
    Los Alamos, which trailed by as many as 11 points with 2:51 remaining in the second quarter, rallied to take a 46-43 lead with just over two minutes remaining in regulation.
    But the Matadors’ Carl Meyer put in a layup bucket with 26.3 seconds left which proved to be the difference in the opening round of the Joe Armijo Invitational. The Matadors prevailed 49-48, putting the Hilltoppers into the loser’s bracket of the tournament, which continues through Saturday at Albuquerque Academy.

  • Toppers thumped by Trojans, 55-33

    ALBUQUERQUE — An impressive run in the third quarter by the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team wasn’t enough to make up for an impressive run by the Mayfield Trojans in the first half.
    The Hilltoppers took on the Trojans, the defending Class 5A champion, in the first round of the Joe Armijo Invitational Thursday afternoon at Albuquerque Academy. The Trojans’ pressure defense and quick guards proved to be too much for the Hilltoppers, however, as they fell 55-33 and dropped into the loser’s bracket of the tournament.
    Los Alamos fell behind by as many as 25 points early in the third quarter, but a huge third quarter put it back in the ballgame.

  • Advocate: Fine case is serious

    SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — New York state must lengthen the statute of limitations to bring charges of child sex abuse, a victims’ advocate said in response to a prosecutor’s statement that it’s too late to investigate two men’s claims that they were molested by former Syracuse University assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine.
    Victims of childhood sexual abuse are “denied basic legal rights,” said the Rev. Robert Hoatson of the advocacy group Road to Recovery.
    “If there ever was a case that screamed ‘injustice,’ it is this one, since it glaringly displays the further damage that antiquated laws can inflict on victims,” Hoatson said in a statement.
