  • Girls basketball: LA routs Santa...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team held the Santa Fe Demons to just eight points in the second and third quarters to win Friday night’s District 2AAAA contest going away.

    Freshman McKenzie Logan had 11 points to lead all scorers as the Hilltoppers came away with a 47-32 victory at Griffith Gymnasium.

    The win improves Los Alamos to 2-0 in the early portion of its district schedule and sets up a big contest Wednesday against two-time district champion Española Valley.

  • Football: The picks just keep on...

    Seriously, I don’t even know why I’m bothering.
    Picking these games ain’t done me a lick of good so far. Here’s a recap of last week’s picks: the Patriots went AWOL and the Falcons got defeathered.
    I went 2-for-4 picking the divisional round playoff games last week. Frankly, picking Pittsburgh over Baltimore was a coin-flip and picking Chicago over Seattle was like picking Larry Holmes over Gerry Cooney, only the most blind-faithed among us would’ve thought the Seattle Cooneys stood a chance.

  • State roundup: Aggie men’s hoops...

    RENO, Nev. — The New Mexico State University men’s basketball team’s three-game win streak was snapped with a 90-71 loss at Nevada Thursday.
    Junior forward Troy Gillenwater had a game-high 22 points from the Aggies, while junior guard Hernst Laroche added 11 points.
     The Aggies moved to 10-10 and 4-2 in the Western Athletic Conference while the Wolf Pack improved to 6-13 and 3-3 in the WAC. Offensively, NMSU was strong in the first half with a 51.9 field goal percentage but hampered in the second half, held to a 30.3 percent clip.

  • Baseball: Hearing over evidence...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The refusal of a convicted steroids dealer to testify at Barry Bonds' perjury trial has already left the prosecution without key evidence, and the defense wants even more of it barred.

    Just how much damage Greg Anderson's decision to go to prison on contempt charges rather than testify against the baseball slugger will be determined at two pivotal court hearings over the next month.

  • Tennis: Venus Williams early...

    MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Venus Williams lasted just seven points in her third-round match Friday at the Australian Open, forced to withdraw due to injury from a Grand Slam singles match for the first time in her career.

    After losing the first game to Andrea Petkovic of Germany and trailing in the second, Williams stretched to her right to return a serve, hit the ball and then cried out in pain, clutching toward her stomach on her right side. It was soon clear that she couldn't continue.

  • Boys basketball: Toppers knock...

    The funny thing about district play is that struggling teams can turn their fortunes around pretty quickly.
    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team took the first step to doing just that Wednesday night and has a chance to take a giant leap this weekend.
    In their District 2AAAA opener Wednesday night, the Hilltoppers upended the Bernalillo Spartans. The Hilltoppers’ stout defense held the Spartans to just five points in the pivotal third quarter as they came away with a 57-44 victory at Griffith Gymnasium.
