  • Baseball: Hearing over evidence...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The refusal of a convicted steroids dealer to testify at Barry Bonds' perjury trial has already left the prosecution without key evidence, and the defense wants even more of it barred.

    Just how much damage Greg Anderson's decision to go to prison on contempt charges rather than testify against the baseball slugger will be determined at two pivotal court hearings over the next month.

  • Tennis: Venus Williams early...

    MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Venus Williams lasted just seven points in her third-round match Friday at the Australian Open, forced to withdraw due to injury from a Grand Slam singles match for the first time in her career.

    After losing the first game to Andrea Petkovic of Germany and trailing in the second, Williams stretched to her right to return a serve, hit the ball and then cried out in pain, clutching toward her stomach on her right side. It was soon clear that she couldn't continue.

  • Boys basketball: Toppers knock...

    The funny thing about district play is that struggling teams can turn their fortunes around pretty quickly.
    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team took the first step to doing just that Wednesday night and has a chance to take a giant leap this weekend.
    In their District 2AAAA opener Wednesday night, the Hilltoppers upended the Bernalillo Spartans. The Hilltoppers’ stout defense held the Spartans to just five points in the pivotal third quarter as they came away with a 57-44 victory at Griffith Gymnasium.

  • LA, Academy girls hoops...

    Los Alamos High School announced Saturday’s girls basketball games between Los Alamos and Albuquerque Academy have been rescheduled.
    Academy, hosting the games, had a schedule conflict.
    Instead, the teams will play Feb. 17 at Academy. Game times will remain 4 p.m., 5:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.

  • Basketball: Lobo men fall on...

    SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Josh Watkins scored 22 points and J.J. O’Brien added a career-high 18 to help Utah beat New Mexico 82-72 on Wednesday night.
    Watkins scored on a variety of drives and pushed the ball at every opportunity to spark the Utes (9-10, 2-3 Mountain West) to back-to-back wins after dropping seven straight.
    O’Brien, a freshman who missed nine games with a broken foot and had only scored 32 points all season, made 7 of 13 shots and grabbed 10 rebounds.

  • Relaxed Nadal moves toward...

    MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — If Rafael Nadal is getting nervous as he eases closer to winning his fourth consecutive Grand Slam, he sure isn't showing it.

    After his 6-2, 6-1, 6-1 win Thursday over American qualifier Ryan Sweeting, the Spanish star appeared as comfortable talking about his next match — against 18-year-old Australian Bernard Tomic — as he was in beating Sweeting so convincingly.

  • Bears-Packers: Fans say it'...

    CHICAGO (AP) — The Green Bay Packers are headed to town for the NFC championship game and Chicago Bears fans are starting to become, well, a bit unbearable.

    Turn on the radio in Chicago and you'll hear no shortage of jokes about Packers fans, many of which have something to do with low intelligence. There's been plenty of laughs over a Green Bay newspaper headline that read "On To Chicaco." Many more center on the dietary habits of fans north of the "Cheddar Curtain," like this one:

  • Boys basketball: LA upends...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team came up big when it mattered most Wednesday night, downing the Bernalillo Spartans 57-44 at Griffith Gymnasium.

    The game was the District 2AAAA opener for both teams.

    Los Alamos (5-14 overall), got 20 points from Thomas Russell, rejoining the lineup after a foot injury kept him out of a ballgame last week, and 12 more from Nick Baker to knock off the Spartans.
