    St. Mike’s, Lovington and Aztec win in football

    In baseball-like scoring contests, the St. Michael’s Horsemen and the Lovington Wildcats won in the Class 3A football semifinals and will advance to the state title game.
    That wasn’t the case in Saturday’s Class 4A semifinal, however, as the Aztec Tigers won a shootout over the Valencia Jaguars.
    The Tigers, the No. 2 seed in the 4A football playoffs, topped Valencia 47-41. They will face the top-seeded Goddard Rockets in the championship this weekend.
    The Rockets knocked off Artesia 28-10 to advance to the final. The game’s date and location hadn’t yet been announced by the New Mexico Activities Association.

  • NBA owners, players reach...

    NEW YORK (AP) — NBA Commissioner David Stern accepted some congratulations, headed for another short night of sleep, then planned to brief his owners on a deal that could change the way they do business.
    Players, looking beat and beaten, face a tougher healing process in approving an agreement that significantly limits their earnings.
    After a 149-day lockout, owners and players reached a tentative new labor deal early Saturday, one they expect will be ratified in time to start the season with a Dec. 25 tripleheader.

  • Toppers pull out win over...

    Apparently, there is something to be said for saving things until the last minute.
    That’s exactly what the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team did Saturday night and it paid off.
    Los Alamos trailed the St. Michael’s Horsemen by three points with under a minute remaining, but hit two huge late buckets to pull out a thrilling victory.
    With 48.5 seconds remaining, Erin Kirk hit her third 3-pointer of the game from the right side of the arc to tie the score. After Los Alamos forced a turnover, Anna Scott drained her only basket of the contest, a 12-foot jumper with :10 left, giving the Hilltoppers a 38-36 victory in their home opener.

  • NBA owners, players reach...

    NEW YORK (AP) — After nearly two years of bickering, NBA players and owners are back on the same side.

    "We want to play basketball," Commissioner David Stern said.

    Come Christmas Day, they should be.

    The sides reached a tentative agreement early Saturday to end the 149-day lockout and hope to begin the delayed season with a marquee tripleheader Dec. 25. Most of a season that seemed in jeopardy of being lost entirely will be salvaged if both sides approve the handshake deal.

    Barring a change in scheduling, the 2011-12 season will open with the Boston Celtics at New York Knicks, followed by Miami at Dallas in an NBA finals rematch before MVP Derrick Rose and Chicago visiting Kobe Bryant and the Lakers.

    Here are the top 25 finishers in the 2011 Turkey Trot:

    1. Alexander Romero, 14:38; 2. John Rees, 15:47; 3. Conner Bailey, 16:44; 4. Dan Rees, 17:01; 5. Ted Romero, 17:05; 6. David Coblentz, 17:06; 7. Tom Stockton, 17:50; 8. Nate Phillips, 18:04; 9. Greyson Venhaus, 18:23; 10. Will Dearholt, 18:32;

  • John wins in battle of brothers

    BALTIMORE (AP) — The Harbaugh brothers met in the middle of the field, hugged, expressed their love for each other and headed off in opposite directions.
    After their much-anticipated, oft-analyzed and historic confrontation was over, John and Jim Harbaugh expressed gratitude over having the opportunity to face each other on Thanksgiving.
    John was just little bit happier, of course, because his Baltimore Ravens beat Jim’s San Francisco 49ers 16-6 Thursday night.
