    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls basketball teams couldn’t be bigger underdogs heading into the opening round of the state Class 4A tournaments.

    Both Hilltopper teams drew the 16th and final seeds in their tournaments. As a result of their No. 16 seeds, they will face the top-seeded teams in the state.

  • Lobos crush Falcons at The Pit

    ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Drew Gordon scored 12 of New Mexico’s first 18 points and Hugh Greenwood opened the second half with 14 straight points as the Lobos defeated Air Force 86-56 Wednesday.
    Greenwood finished with a game- and career-high 22 points with six rebounds, and Gordon had 17 points and 11 rebounds for New Mexico (23-6, 9-4 Mountain West), which ended a two-game losing streak.
    Taylor Broekhuis scored 11 points to lead Air Force (13-14, 3-10).
    “I thought tonight, we did an awful of good things,” New Mexico coach Steve Alford said. “We shared the basketball. We didn’t turn the ball over. We dominated the glass. I thought our defense was really back to being that stingy defense we’ve been seeing.”

  • Topper girls open year at Rio...

    It takes quite a bit to get the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls track and field team down.
    Even with its star athlete coming up gimpy during a preseason workout isn’t doing anything to diminish the Hilltoppers’ aspirations heading into the 2012 season.
    Coming off its third consecutive Class 4A team title, the Hilltoppers look plenty loaded again and could once again be the team to beat this spring.

  • Kicked wrestler suing promoter

    JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (AP) — A former professional wrestler is suing his opponent and the Indiana-based promoter who arranged their bout last year, claiming his foe was supposed to lose their match but had other ideas and kicked him so hard in the crotch that he had to have surgery.
    John Levi Miller, 23, contends in his lawsuit filed Monday that Clinton Woosley was the “heel,” a term used to describe the designated villain, of their match last June, The Courier-Journal of Louisville, Ky., reported. He says Woosley, who wrestles under the name Guido Andretti, declined his invitation to map out the fight, as is customary, and instead said he understood the plan.
