  • Men's basketball: Alford...

    AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) — Steve Alford couldn’t help but feel a bit nostalgic after his team’s 75-61 win at Air Force Tuesday night.
    After all, he’d just become the 40th active Division I basketball coach to reach 400 career wins at the collegiate level.

  • Football: A Super Bowl shiver...

    FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — One Pittsburgh safety kept interrupting reporters' questions about the Super Bowl to complain it was too chilly. A Green Bay receiver bragged that the snow outside made the Packers "the home team."

    Even the player known as "The Freezer" said Texas was just too cold.

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper hockey team survived a tight contest at home Friday night, then took a couple of blowout victories Saturday.

    Los Alamos topped St. Pius Friday at the county’s ice rink, 2-1, then thumped both La Cueva, 6-1, and Clevleland 6-0 to round out the weekend.

  • Football: Polamalu voted top...

    DALLAS (AP) — Now that the voters have chosen Troy Polamalu over Clay Matthews for The Associated Press 2010 NFL Defensive Player of the Year award, the two stars can prove their worth against each other on the field.
    In the Super Bowl.
    Pittsburgh safety Polamalu received 17 votes Monday from a nationwide panel of 50 media members who cover the league, edging Green Bay linebacker Matthews by a hair — two votes.

  • NFL, union set up formal labor...

    DALLAS (AP) — After weeks of talking to fans, reporters and Congress about their lagging labor negotiations, the NFL and its players' union are getting around to talking to each other.

    NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and union executive director DeMaurice Smith met Monday in New York in an effort to kick-start efforts toward a new collective bargaining agreement. They agreed to a series of bargaining sessions between now and the early March deadline for a deal.

  • Wrestling: LA has solid outing...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team had three grapplers advance to the gold round of the Las Vegas Robertson Invitational this weekend.
    Jodi Cull-Host, Cory Geyer and Diego Madrid were all solid on day one of the two-day tournament and got to compete in the top bracket of double-elimination competition Saturday.
    The tournament was hosted by Robertson, a longtime top-shelf program in New Mexico.

  • Boys basketball: Toppers lose to...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team again kept things close Friday night, but couldn’t knock off a tough opponent.

    Los Alamos head coach Matt King said it was a frustrating loss for the Hilltoppers (5-17 overall, 1-3 in 2AAAA), who felt just a few possessions late in the game could’ve changed the outcome.
