  • Cycling: Racer says Armstrong...

    Tyler Hamilton joined Floyd Landis on the list of cyclists who once worked for Lance Armstrong but now say the seven-time Tour de France winner used performance-enhancing drugs.
    In an interview with “60 Minutes,” Hamilton admitted that he doped and said Armstrong did, as well — using the blood booster EPO in the 1999 Tour and before the race in 2000 and 2001. Armstrong’s string of seven straight wins lasted from 1999-2005.
    “I saw (EPO) in his refrigerator. ... I saw him inject it more than one time, like we all did. Like I did, many, many times,” Hamilton said in the “60 Minutes” interview that was aired Thursday on the “CBS Evening News.”

  • College: Ahlers inks with Coast...

    Madison Ahlers is not one to back down from a challenge.
    So it makes sense that in the next phase of her life she wants to become a helicopter pilot.
    Ahlers, a three-sport athlete at Los Alamos High School, signed her National Letter of Intent last week to attend the United States Coast Guard Academy. Ahlers will attend an academy prep school in 2011-12 and board the academy’s ship the following year.
    Once she gets there, she will play both soccer and compete in both the indoor and outdoor track and field seasons.

  • Basketball: Late push by James...

    CHICAGO (AP) — Right from the start, LeBron James made it clear he was going to attack and no one was going to stop him.
    Point taken.
    James came up big down the stretch with nine of his 29 points in the final 4:27, Dwyane Wade added 24 and the Miami Heat beat the Chicago Bulls 85-75 Wednesday night to tie the Eastern Conference finals at one game apiece.
    “It was a big game,” James said. “We felt like it was a must win for us going back home.”
    The Heat can breathe a little easier after escaping with a win and stealing home-court advantage. Coming off a lopsided loss in Game 1, they recovered in crunch time — thanks in large part to James — after blowing an 11-point lead.

  • Baseball: Hall of Famer...

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Harmon Killebrew, the affable, big-swinging Hall of Famer whose tape-measure home runs made him the cornerstone of the Minnesota Twins, died Tuesday at his home in Scottsdale, Ariz., after battling esophageal cancer. He was 74.

    The Twins said Killebrew passed away peacefully with his wife, Nita, and their family at his side. He announced his diagnosis just six months ago and last week Killebrew said doctors had deemed the "awful disease" incurable.

  • Basketball: Well-rested...

    DALLAS (AP) — Kobe Bryant and Tim Duncan have been through so many playoff series, they would be good sources to discuss the prevailing themes in the Western Conference finals, like how valuable experience is at this stage and whether there's such thing as too much rest between rounds.

    Only, Bryant and Duncan aren't around. For just the second time since 1998, neither the Lakers nor the Spurs will represent the West in the NBA finals.

    Instead, it'll either be Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Kidd and the aging-but-rested Dallas Mavericks, or Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and the rapidly maturing Oklahoma City Thunder.

  • Football: Appeals court rules in...

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The NFL’s lockout remains in place, a federal appeals court ruled Monday. That means the league likely won’t get back to business until at least next month — and maybe much longer than that.
    The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the lockout can stay until a full appeal is heard on whether it is legal. That hearing is scheduled for June 3 in St. Louis, before the same panel that issued this 2-1 decision.

  • Topes Notes 05-17-11

    An offense-heavy series between the Albuquerque Isotopes and Tucson Padres wraps up tonight and the Isotopes will return home.
    The Isotopes, the Triple-A franchise of the Los Angeles Dodgers, have a chance to even out their road series with the Padres before their eight-game homestand starts Thursday.
    At Tucson, the two teams have combined for 40 runs in three games, including Tucson’s 10-4 victory Monday.
    The Padres scored eight runs in the first three innings and held on to win Monday. They scored three times in the first and four times in the second to jump out to a big 7-0 lead. The Isotopes battled back to score twice in the top of the third, but the Padres scored another run in the bottom of the third.
