  • Boys basketball: Hawks knock off...

    Facing his former program, Los Alamos boys basketball head coach Matt King had a pretty good idea what to expect.
    The Hilltoppers were looking for a physical, pressure defense and good free throw shooting from the Volcano Vista Hawks and that’s exactly what they saw Tuesday night in a46-38 loss.
    And while the Hilltoppers handled the pressure reasonably well Tuesday, the clutch foul shooting of Volcano Vista’s Mario Molina would ultimately decide the game.

  • Girls basketball: LA falls to...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team again struggled in its second outing against the Volcano Vista Hawks.
    Tuesday night, the Hilltoppers were held to a total of six points in the first and third quarters as the Class 5A Hawks took a 57-26 victory in Albuquerque.

  • AP source: Rich Rodriguez,...

    ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Rich Rodriguez admits he usually doesn't sleep well, tossing and turning between nap-like stretches.

    He could be forgiven for having one of his more restless nights.

    The embattled Michigan coach met Tuesday with athletic director Dave Brandon and the two were expected to meet again Wednesday morning to discuss the coach's future with college football's winningest program.

  • Unbeaten TCU stops Wisconsin 21-...

    PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — When Tank Carder leaped with perfect timing and swatted Wisconsin's final pass to the turf, the TCU linebacker felt as if he got a boost from every player at every school that never even imagined playing in the Rose Bowl.

    Sure, these unbeaten Horned Frogs realized they couldn't win the national title. They still celebrated their perfection on the hallowed Pasadena turf in the name of all the little guys outside the monolithic powers of major college football.

  • Monitor picks top sporting...

    In few sports were the Bernalillo Spartans considered much of a District 2AAAA title contender, but in 2010’s contests against the Los Alamos Hilltoppers, they may as well have been.
    The Spartans seemed to get up for every game this year against the Hilltoppers, giving them everything they could handle on plenty of occasions. Games involving the Hilltoppers and Spartans appear three times among the Los Alamos Monitor’s top 10 contests of 2010.

  • UConn's win streak ends at...

    STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Maya Moore and everybody around UConn realized how much this meant to Stanford after several near misses against the mighty Huskies — one in the Final Four, another that cost the Cardinal the 2010 NCAA title.

    No. 1 Connecticut's remarkable run is over, a 90-game winning streak stopped by an inspired Stanford squad determined to protect its own impressive mark: 52 straight home wins at Maples Pavilion.

  • Basketball: LA girls, boys pick...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team picked up a win in the final contest of its three-day stay at the Roswell-Goddard Classic.
    Following a pair of losses to open up the tournament, to Carlsbad and Goddard, Los Alamos bounced back to knock off the Gadsden Panthers 53-45 Wednesday.
    As it did in its tournament opener against Carlsbad, Los Alamos struggled through the early part of the game. After being outscored 12-3 in the first quarter, Los Alamos got on track and dropped in 23 points in the second quarter to grab the lead going into the break.

  • Basketball: Lobos edge Red...

    LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — New Mexico appeared to be unprepared for Texas Tech Wednesday night when the Lobos trailed by 15 points midway through the first half.
    When New Mexico made it to the locker room trailing by six, coach Steve Alford did not have much to say to his entire team, but chose to address his three senior leaders — A.J. Hardeman, Dairese Gary and Phillip McDonald.

  • Footbal: Webb-led Vikings upset...

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Written off by nearly everyone, the Minnesota Vikings wouldn't let two extra days sitting around a hotel bring them down.

    After all they've been through this season, it may have given them extra motivation.

    Rookie Joe Webb threw for 195 yards and ran for a touchdown in his first career start filling in for an injured Brett Favre, and the lowly Vikings stunned Michael Vick and the NFC East champion Philadelphia Eagles 24-14 in the NFL's first Tuesday game since 1946.
