  • Lobos rout Air Force, improve to...

    AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) — Still stinging from back-to-back losses to the Mountain West’s other heavyweights, the New Mexico Lobos are taking out their frustrations on everyone else.
    The Lobos got 13 points from both Drew Gordon and Kendall Williams Tuesday night when they handed Air Force an 81-42 drubbing, its most lopsided home loss ever.
    With their third straight double-digit win, the Lobos (18-4, 4-2) moved within a half-game of conference co-leaders No. 11 UNLV and No. 17 San Diego State, the two schools that handed them early losses in league play.
    “Those two letdowns obviously showed us what we need to work on,” Gordon said.
    And they’ve worked on those things very well, indeed.

  • Toppers run away from Dons, 65-41

    Putting together its biggest offensive night of the season, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team ran away from the West Las Vegas Dons in the second half Tuesday.
    Nick Baker had one of the biggest nights of his career, throwing down 18 points in only about three quarters of work as the Hilltoppers pounded the Dons 65-41 at Griffith Gymnasium.
    Los Alamos scored 40 points in the second half, including a 19-point effort in the fourth quarter with its reserves playing the bulk of that time. Three Hilltoppers got into double-digits scoring while Franklin Archuleta had seven points in the third quarter after not making an appearance in the first half.

  • Super Bowl is a security...

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — From pickpockets and prostitutes to dirty bombs and exploding manhole covers, authorities are bracing for whatever threat the first Super Bowl in downtown Indianapolis might bring.

    Some — nuclear terrorism, for instance — are likely to remain just hypothetical. But others, like thieves and wayward manhole covers, are all too real.

    Though Indianapolis has ample experience hosting large sporting events — the Indianapolis 500 attracts more than 200,000 fans each year, and the NCAA's men's Final Four basketball tournament has been held here six times since 1980— the city's first Super Bowl poses some unique challenges.

  • Hilltoppers upend Ice Tigers

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper hockey team reclaimed the North Star Trophy by upsetting the Taos Ice Tigers Saturday.
    The Hilltoppers scored two unanswered goals in the third period to upend the Ice Tigers 5-3 at Taos. A pair of underclassmen, sophomore Tyler Thorn and freshman Hudson Davenhall tallied goals in the final period to lift the Hilltoppers to the win.
    Los Alamos and Taos are longstanding rivals in the New Mexico Interscholastic Ice Hockey League and play one another each year for the North Star Trophy.
    Davenhall, the leading scorer for the Hilltoppers this season, picked up his second hat trick of the year with his third-period goal, which came with just five seconds remaining in regulation. For the season, Davenhall has recorded 11 goals.
