  • LA finishes fifth at Jaguar...

    SANTA FE – It was a long day but it was a good day.
    After struggling at the 2010 Jaguar Invitational Tournament, the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team had a top-five showing at the 2011 event, picking up seven medals.
    The Hilltoppers finished Saturday’s Jaguar Invitational with 110.0 points, good enough for fifth place. The Hilltoppers actually started the final round in third place, but strong finishes by both Deming and Capital, along with an unfortunate turn of events for Los Alamos 220-pounder Diego Madrid, saw the team slip.
    “(Seven) medals is pretty good,” Los Alamos head coach Bob Geyer said. “Last year we just did one and this year’s tournament I thought was tougher than last year’s.”

  • Griffin tops Luck to win Heisman...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Robert Griffin III beat out preseason favorite Andrew Luck for the Heisman Trophy, dazzling voters with his ability to throw, run and lead Big 12 doormat Baylor into the national rankings.
    The junior quarterback known as RG3 became the first Heisman winner from Baylor on Saturday night by a comfortable cushion over the Stanford star.
    Griffin started the season on the fringe of the Heisman conversation, a talented and exciting player on a marginal team, while Luck was already being touted as a No. 1 NFL draft pick.
    Draft day might very well still belong to Luck, but Griffin diverted the Heisman to Waco, Texas, to a school that has never had a player finish better than fourth in the voting — and that was 48 years ago.

  • Lobos pick up big win over USC

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Steve Alford summed up his team’s performance in one simple word.
    Despite the lack of style points, the result was all he cared about.
    Tony Snell hit two free throws with 1:27 left to put New Mexico ahead, and the Lobos held on to beat Southern California 44-41 on Saturday.
    The Lobos went without a field goal for the final 14:16, but made 11 free throws in that span to fend off the Trojans.
    “It was ugly,” Alford said. “We got careless. We got bored, really. But we found a way to win. And that’s all that really matters.”
