  • Men's basketball: No clear-...

    Every year when the NCAA tournament bracket comes out, there’s a team, maybe a couple that stand out.
    Last year, to a certain extent, it was Duke. Kansas, with those five future pros, was the bracket behemoth in 2008 and Florida was the no-brainer in 2007.
    This year, there doesn’t seem to be that one team that’ll be at the top of everyone’s bracket. It’s probably closer to a dozen. Heck, there are five or six teams just in the Big East that could be considered legitimate title contenders.

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys tennis team went 3-0 at last weekend’s Clovis Quadrangular, with two of those wins coming handily over two Class 5A teams.
    Both the Hilltopper boys and girls teams took part in the quad, which included Clovis, Portales and Rio Rancho’s Sue Cleveland.
    Los Alamos’ boys earned a 7-2 victory over Clovis Friday, then followed that up with a 6-3 win over Portales and a 9-0 win against Cleveland.
