  • Basketball: James' 31 not...

    BOSTON (AP) — LeBron James and the Miami Heat were showered with chants of "overrated!" They sure looked that way in their debut as a team formed to win a championship.

    The old Big Three of the Boston Celtics, playing under the franchise's 17 title banners, beat the new Big Three of James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh 88-80 on Tuesday night.

  • Baseball: Lee vs. Lincecum is...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Cliff Lee marvels at Tim Lincecum's motion. So much torque, so much power. So darn unusual.

    "The way he does it, no one else does it that way. I like that," Lee said Tuesday, a day before the Texas Rangers ace pitches against the San Francisco Giants star in Game 1 of the World Series.

  • Soccer: LA girls take on Broncos...

    While the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team fell in about where it expected to in the Class AAAA state tournament bracket, the fates of some other teams turned out to be a bit different.
    Los Alamos was awarded the sixth seed in the Class AAAA championship bracket, which was released Sunday. The AAAA state tournament gets going Friday and continues through Nov. 6 with the state title game.

  • Soccer: LA boys get 5th seed in...

    It was a crowded door to try to get through and the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team was just crowded out.
    Los Alamos picked up a fifth seed in the upcoming state soccer playoffs. The bracket for the Class AAAA tournament was released Sunday.
    The No. 5 seed means the Hilltoppers (13-8) just missed out on one of the coveted top four bracket spots that as many seven teams could legitimately lay claim to this season.
    Instead, Los Alamos will play an opening round game Saturday. That game is set for 1 p.m. at Sullivan Field.

  • Football: Top six college...

    Before the calendar even flipped to November, two coaches had been fired. Minnesota is already looking for a replacement for Tim Brewster and North Texas is in search of someone to follow Todd Dodge.

    Both were in precarious positions and both managed one victory the first half of the season.

  • Football: Romo breaks collarbone...

    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Tony Romo threw the pass, then didn't have a chance. Linebacker Michael Boley was coming right at him, unblocked and going full speed.

    The hit was so hard that when Romo landed on his left shoulder, Boley heard him "let out a little scream." All Romo remembers was how much trouble he had breathing.

  • Soccer: LA boys get fifth seed,...

    Both the Los Alamos boys and girls soccer teams will host first round games this weekend to start the Class AAAA playoffs.

    The state Class AAAA tournament will start Friday and continue through next weekend.

    Los Alamos’ boys earned the No. 5 seed in the tournament and will host 12th-seeded Los Lunas in the opening round of the tournament. Meanwhile, Los Alamos’ girls picked up a No. 6 seed and will meet No. 11 Kirtland Central in the first round.

  • Girls cross country: LA sticks...

    Calling it a buzzword might be something of a misnomer, but it was the word floating around most among the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls cross country team Friday.
    Faith.
    And on the odd chance that there were any doubters among them, that doubt was erased in a matter of about 15 seconds at the Los Alamos Invitational.
    At the meet, traditionally the last of the regular season for Los Alamos, all six of the Hilltoppers’ competing runners crossed the finish line in order, from four through nine, to earn a big victory.

  • Boys cross country: Toppers have...

    In 2003 when the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys cross country team upset heavily-favored Albuquerque Academy for the state Class AAAA title, it had its best showing of the regular season at the Los Alamos Invitational.
    In 2007 when the Hilltoppers upset the heavily-favored Academy Chargers for the state Class AAAA title, they had their best showing of the season at the Los Alamos Invitational.
    Could the 2010 Los Alamos Invitational be a harbinger of things to come?

  • Football: LA wins big in the...

    ESPAÑOLA – The Los Alamos Hilltopper football team did what it had to do in defeating the Española Valley Sundevils Friday night.
    Now, it must finish off its 2010 season with a victory and hope for a favorable outcome from the Bernalillo-Santa Fe game this week.
    The Hilltoppers vanquished the Sundevils, who have struggled through the entire 2010 season. The Hilltoppers scored with just 17 seconds expired in the game Friday night and never looked back, picking up a 51-12 victory at Española Valley.
