  • Cowboys pick Jason Garrett as...

    IRVING, Texas (AP) — Jason Garrett nailed his audition. He gets to remain coach of the Dallas Cowboys.

    A person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press that Garrett will be announced as the new head coach at a news conference at Cowboys Stadium on Thursday afternoon. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team had not announced the decision.

  • Roberto Alomar and Bert Blyleven...

    NEW YORK (AP) — After a narrow miss last year, Bert Blyleven told voters they finally got it right by sending him into the Hall of Fame along with Roberto Alomar.

    And he took the opportunity to talk about baseball's dark past — the Steroids Era.

  • Kirk sets New Mexico freshman...

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Alex Kirk knew of former New Mexico standout and NBA player Kenny Thomas, but didn't know he had just surpassed him.

    Kirk set a New Mexico freshman scoring record with 31 points Wednesday night as the Lobos defeated Cal State Bakersfield 102-62.

    Kirk, who was 11 of 13 from the field and 7 of 8 from the free-throw line, more than tripled his previous high of 10 points, matching that figure with 8:31 left in the first half.

  • Boys basketball: Hawks knock off...

    Facing his former program, Los Alamos boys basketball head coach Matt King had a pretty good idea what to expect.
    The Hilltoppers were looking for a physical, pressure defense and good free throw shooting from the Volcano Vista Hawks and that’s exactly what they saw Tuesday night in a46-38 loss.
    And while the Hilltoppers handled the pressure reasonably well Tuesday, the clutch foul shooting of Volcano Vista’s Mario Molina would ultimately decide the game.

  • Girls basketball: LA falls to...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team again struggled in its second outing against the Volcano Vista Hawks.
    Tuesday night, the Hilltoppers were held to a total of six points in the first and third quarters as the Class 5A Hawks took a 57-26 victory in Albuquerque.

  • AP source: Rich Rodriguez,...

    ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Rich Rodriguez admits he usually doesn't sleep well, tossing and turning between nap-like stretches.

    He could be forgiven for having one of his more restless nights.

    The embattled Michigan coach met Tuesday with athletic director Dave Brandon and the two were expected to meet again Wednesday morning to discuss the coach's future with college football's winningest program.

  • Unbeaten TCU stops Wisconsin 21-...

    PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — When Tank Carder leaped with perfect timing and swatted Wisconsin's final pass to the turf, the TCU linebacker felt as if he got a boost from every player at every school that never even imagined playing in the Rose Bowl.

    Sure, these unbeaten Horned Frogs realized they couldn't win the national title. They still celebrated their perfection on the hallowed Pasadena turf in the name of all the little guys outside the monolithic powers of major college football.
