  • Big 12 lives to play another day

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Staring at extinction, the Big 12 is once again in play.

    The beleaguered conference made a rousing comeback Monday, when Texas declined an invitation to join the Pac-10 and decided to stay in the Big 12.

    Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas A&M quickly followed the Longhorns by recommitting to the conference after commissioner Dan Beebe convinced his members they would make more money in television and media deals in a 10-team Big 12 then in a 16-team Pac-10.

    It was a repeat win for both the top competitors at this 2010 Pajarito Punishment.

    The Pajarito Punishment, a New Mexico Off-Road Series race, was held Saturday at Pajarito Mountain. The Punishment is considered one of the toughest races in the NMORS. In all, 151 riders finished Saturday’s race.

  • Golf: Tiger says game is...

    PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) — The one shot that got so much attention during practice 10 years ago at Pebble Beach was a 4-iron that Tiger Woods hit so high, so straight, so flush that it landed softly near the pin on a brick-hard green at the par-3 12th.

    That wasn't the case Tuesday at the U.S. Open.

    There is not much about Woods that looks the same as it once did.

    "Tiger!" he muttered to himself as his 4-iron sailed weakly to the left of the 12th green, closer to the gallery than the pin.

  • Girls basketball: LA standout...
  • Hockey: Third time's a...

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — This was one hat trick Marian Hossa wanted no part of turning.

    The Stanley Cup finals had become Hossa's personal playground each of the last three years with different clubs. Although the star forward had gotten as far as the championship round several times, he was never able to seal the deal and raise the coveted silver chalice over his head.

    Until now.

  • UPDATE: All-Star Game slated for...

    Tonight's Class 4A/5A North-South All-Star girls basketball game will be played at Highland High School in Albuquerque.

    Highland is located at 4700 Coal Ave. in Albuquerque.

    Former Hilltopper standout Taylor Ealey is scheduled to play in tonight's All-Star Game. Game time is scheduled for 8 p.m.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Poor Stephen Strasburg. Too much pressure to put on a 21-year-old kid. No way he could live up to the hype, right?

    Ha!

    Strasburg didn't fall short of the hype. If anything, the hype fell short of him. Fourteen strikeouts. Not a single walk. An electrifying performance, including an unforgettable final inning in which he struck out the side while all of Nationals Park roared with every pitch.
