  • Girls basketball: Toppers hold...

    With one minute remaining, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team looked well on its way to picking up its third win of the District 2AAAA season.
    With 21.6 seconds remaining, everything was up in the air.
    The Hilltoppers survived a scare Saturday night to pick up the victory. Christine Larribas picked off a pass on the Capital Jaguars’ side of the court to break up a potential game-tying drive and the Hilltoppers hit some big late free throws to win 58-55.

  • Men's basketball: Lobos...

    ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Tony Snell hit three big shots down the stretch. Before that, he did a nice defensive number against the nation’s top scorer.
    Snell, a freshman, scored a career-high 16 points and made three  3-pointers in the final five minutes, helping New Mexico beat the No. 9 Cougars 86-77 Saturday.
    “I just tried to play as hard as I can,” Snell said. “Coach told me to be ready and shoot with confidence.”

  • Golf: Haas, Mickelson tied for...

    SAN DIEGO (AP) — The way Phil Mickelson likes to play golf, he didn't have much fun Saturday at Torrey Pines.

    Based on how he needs to play the South Course, Phil was thrilled.

    Mickelson gave up on his swashbuckling style by playing it safe in the Farmers Insurance Open, making eight pars and a birdie on the back nine for a 4-under 68 that gave him a share of the lead with Bill Haas.

  • Tennis: Clijsters tops China...

    MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Kim Clijsters finally won her first Australian Open title and the fourth major of her career, wiping tears from her eyes after she beat Li Na 3-6, 6-3, 6-3 Saturday.

    The loss ended an outstanding run through the tournament by Li, who became the first Chinese player to reach a Grand Slam singles final.

    Li appeared to become upset with some of the Chinese spectators in the crowd in the third set and asked the chair umpire to intervene. She later complained about the flashes from photographers at center court.

  • Football: LA honors its top...

    Following the conclusion of the 2010 football, the Gridiron Booster Club recognized the 2010 Hilltopper football teams for their efforts on and off the field.
    “This is about honoring these young men,” said head coach Garett Williams. “That’s what we’re celebrating tonight, their commitment. Hopefully they’re learning something every time they step out on the field.”
    In all, 39 varisty awards were presented throughout the evening both offensively and defensively.

  • Murray makes Australian finale

    MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Andy Murray will get another chance to end a near 75-year winless streak for British men in Grand Slam singles tournaments after beating Spain’s David Ferrer 4-6, 7-6 (2), 6-1, 7-6 (2) Friday to reach the Australian Open final.
    The semifinal win put Murray into Sunday’s final against Novak Djokovic of Serbia, the 2008 champion who holds a 4-3 edge in head-to-head matches. However, Murray has won the last three.
