    ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Derrick Williams carried Arizona in the first half, keeping the Wildcats in the game against Duke. His teammates returned the favor in the final 20 minutes with an offensive barrage that stunned the defending national champions.
    Williams scored 25 of his career-high 32 points in the first half of Arizona's 93-77 victory Thursday night, helping the Wildcats reach the final eight for the first time since 2005.
    "As a team, we came together and willed ourselves to win," said Lamont Jones, who added 16 points. "Derrick is a great player, but we all contribute."

  • Running: Big crowd drawn to Run...

    Sunday’s Run for Her Life turned into a bigger deal than race organizers anticipated, so much so that plans are being made to turn it into an annual event.
    The Run for Her Life, held on Mesa Trail behind East Park, was a 5K and 10K run, the proceeds of which went to benefit breast cancer research.
    More than 120 participants took part in the Run for Her Life, which was hosted by the local chapter of Hadassah and the Atomic City Roadrunners. It raised more than $6,000 for research.
    Alexander Romero of Los Alamos (19:28) and Sophia Torres of Cordova (21:26) were the top finishers in the 5K race, while Wayne Chick (40:42) and Erica Baron (40:49) posted the best times in the 10K race.

  • Football: Kickoffs to start on...

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The NFL will move kickoffs up 5 yards to the 35-yard line, keep touchbacks coming out to the 20 and allow the number of players in a blocking wedge to remain at two.
    Kick coverage players now will be limited to lining up 5 yards or fewer from the spot of the kickoff.
    Team owners also voted Tuesday to make all scoring plays reviewable by the replay official and referee. But they tabled a proposal to ban players launching themselves to make a tackle, and will reconsider it in May.

  • Softball: LA scores 5 times in...

    A big five-run rally in the fourth inning, aided by four errors, put Tuesday’s game away for the Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team.
    Los Alamos hosted its downhill rival, the Pojoaque Elks, Tuesday at Overlook Park in just its second home appearance of the season. Los Alamos scored 10 runs in a three-inning span and tacked on another in the bottom of the sixth to close out the game early, topping Pojoaque 11-1.
    Along with the big offensive effort, Hilltopper pitcher Monika Teter struck out five of the first six batters she faced and gave up just one unearned run on the afternoon as she earned her second victory at home.

  • Men's basketball: Tide...

    TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Trevor Releford's speedy drives, Tony Mitchell's high-flying dunks and an effective dose of full-court pressure kept Alabama alive in the National Invitation Tournament.

    Mitchell scored 23 points and Releford matched his career-high with 20 to lead the Crimson Tide to a 74-67 win over New Mexico Monday night in the second round of the NIT.

    The Tide (23-11), mostly known for its defense, made 15 of 20 shots in the second half to move into the quarterfinals. Alabama will host Miami on Wednesday night, aiming for its sixth trip to the NIT final four at Madison Square Garden.

    The spring season opener for the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys golf team was cut short Monday.
    Los Alamos started a round at the Belen Invitational Monday morning, but wind speeds were hitting 50 mph during play. The wind and accompanying dust made the Tierra Del Sol course virtually unplayable.
    Hilltopper head coach John Stam said the tournament, one of five scheduled for his team this spring, may be rescheduled for April 7.
