  • Freeze frame - Robertson beats...

    Frigid conditions and a snow-covered field didn’t slow the Robertson Cardinals on Saturday in the Class 3A state championship football game.

    Neither did the Silver Colts.

    The host Cardinals scored 20 unanswered points in the pivotal third quarter to capture the state title — Robertson’s third on the gridiron in school history.

  • Cowboys win in OT

    LAKEWOOD, Colo. — The Cowboys men’s basketball team opened Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference play Friday night and decided 40 minutes was not enough. New Mexico Highlands (4-1, 1-0 RMAC) went into double overtime to knock off Colorado Christian 102-100 in a thrilling contest.

  • Lobos 7-1 after beating Cincy

    The Associated Press

    ALBUQUERQUE — New Mexico coach Craig Neal watched his Lobos play exactly according to his game plan Saturday against Cincinnati.

    And the result was a 63-54 New Mexico victory.

    “I thought our guys did the game plan exactly the way we should,” Neal said. “I thought we did a great job on just keep pushing forward with our tempo. Trying to take good shots. Don’t turn the ball over against their press and play really good defense. And I thought our guys did that.”

  • The Big One - Robertson to host...

    After getting even (and then some, given the stakes) with three teams they’d already played once this fall, the Robertson Cardinals must beat a relative stranger if they want to hoist the third Class 3A state football championship trophy.

    The good news is they figure to have plenty of friendly and familiar faces around them for Saturday’s title game, set for a 1 p.m. kickoff at Cardinal Stadium.

  • Santa Fe Prep deals Dons their...

    A potential game-winning 3-pointer went awry, and so did a subsequent putback that would’ve forced overtime, leaving West Las Vegas on the short end of a 61-59 boys’ basketball tally against Santa Fe Prep on Tuesday night at the Gillie Lopez Gymnasium.

    The photo finish was in keeping with the entire game. Neither team led by more than eight points all night, and the lead changed hands 13 times.
