  • Girls basketball: Toppers open...

    BERNALILLO — A rough start to Tuesday night’s District 2AAAA-opening game could’ve spelled disaster for the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team.
    The Bernalillo Spartans controlled the action throughout the first eight minutes Tuesday night, but the Hilltoppers got things together early in the second quarter and never looked back.
    Los Alamos held Bernalillo to just two points in the second quarter and four points in the third as it rolled to a 45-27 victory in the first district contest for both teams.

    MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Defending champion Roger Federer admitted he was lucky to escape with a victory at the Australian Open on Wednesday, edging Gilles Simon 6-2, 6-3, 4-6, 4-6, 6-3 in the second round.

    Early on it seemed as if Simon, who had beaten Federer in their only two previous meetings, would send the Swiss star packing out of a Grand Slam before the third round for the first time since the French Open in 2003 — a total of 31 majors.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The NFL players' union filed a collusion claim against the league's owners, another move in the back-and-forth between the sides as they near the expiration of their labor contract.

    The union originally had until December — 90 days after the start of the season — to accuse teams of conspiring to restrict players' salaries last offseason, but the league agreed to extend that deadline.

    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.

    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.
