  • Baseball: Votto voted NL's...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Joey Votto and Albert Pujols had a long conversation behind the batting cage before a game a few years ago.

    "There's something about a star player of that magnitude kind of pulling you in and saying, it's OK, we can talk, don't be a rookie right now, we're going to talk like men," Votto said. "I think he made me feel comfortable and a little more confident."

  • It’s a whole new hoop game

    Things are going to be considerably different around the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball program for the 2010-11 season.
    With several noticeable absences from last season, hardly the least of which is the 6 foot, 11 inch frame of its star center, Los Alamos will have its first chance to see how the changes are taking shape Tuesday night.
    The Hilltoppers will open their 2010-11 campaign Tuesday on the road when they travel to the Four Corners area. They will square off at 7 p.m. against the Kirtland Central Broncos.

    HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Maya Moore missed, and suddenly Connecticut's grip on women's college basketball was in jeopardy.
