    Mixed martial arts fighting has rapidly been gaining popularity for many years, and while television gives interested viewers many opportunities to take in action, it doesn’t compare to seeing it live.
    Those who have no problem shelling out $50 to their satellite providers to catch the monthly Ultimate Fighting Championship bouts should know it pales to the experience right there, in the arena.
    Saturday night, Buffalo Thunder Resort and Casino hosted the King of the Cage fights.

  • Tennis: Even for generous...

    MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Kim Clijsters is one of the friendliest players on the women's tour. Cheery in the locker room, generous, polite.

    That's off the court.

    She learned by losing three Grand Slam finals that intensity is essential to winning a major, something she's hoping to do outside the United States for the first time.

  • Baseball: Effort to get team in...

    CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) — An effort to put professional baseball in Clovis has struck out.

    The Clovis News Journal reports the independent Pecos League pulled its association with the Clovis Pioneers on Monday, replacing them with the Ruidoso Osos.

    League Commissioner Andrew Dunn says he doesn't see how organizers can make it work financially in Clovis.

  • Girls basketball: Toppers knock...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team picked up a big victory in its final outing before the start of the District 2AAAA season.
    On the road at Class 5A Manzano, Los Alamos broke open a tight ballgame in the second half, holding the Monarchs to just 10 second half points.
    A balanced scoring attack, with eight players getting into the action, propelled the Hilltoppers to a decisive 46-30 victory in Albuquerque.

  • Boys basketball: LA dropped by...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team hung around with the Class 5A Sandia Matadors for a little more than a quarter and a half, but the Matadors started to pull away late in the first half.
    The Matadors went on a 13-2 run in the final 3:28 of the second quarter to take control of the ballgame. The Matadors never looked back, earning a 55-29 victory Saturday at Griffith Gymnasium.
    Saturday’s game was the final one of the nondistrict season for the Hilltoppers, who open 2AAAA play Wednesday with the Bernalillo Spartans.

  • Wrestling: LA picks up 8 wins at...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team had a rough outing at this weekend’s Joe Vivian Invitational, with only two wrestlers surviving day one of the two day tournament.
    Los Alamos took a good portion of its team down to the tournament in Albuquerque, but picked up just eight wins total, half of those by Desmond Fellers and three more by Cory Geyer.

  • Men's basketball: Lobos...

    ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Coach Steve Fisher is almost ready to say it: smooth-shooting point guard D.J. Gay is San Diego State’s best player.
    Gay scored a career-high 30 points, Kawhi Leonard had 19 points and 15 rebounds and No. 6 San Diego State beat New Mexico 87-77 on Saturday night to remain one of the nation’s four unbeaten teams.
    Fisher said he has maintained all season that Gay is arguably the team’s most important player.

  • Boys basketball: Buzzer-beater...

    It was a defensive struggle, to say the very least.
    Playing in its next-to-last game before the start of the District 2AAAA season, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team held its opponent, Pojoaque, to a season-low 21 points.
    That was the good news. The bad news was the Hilltoppers could only manage a season-low 18 points.
    Lucas Salazar, Pojoaque’s slippery point guard, hit a fallaway, 25-foot 3-pointer as the buzzer sounded to give the Elks the victory in the offensively-punchless nondistrict contest Thursday at Griffith Gymnasium.
