  • Lady Dons hang on

    West Las Vegas junior guard Deanna Bustos swished four straight free throws in the closing seconds Tuesday night, nudging the Lady Dons to a 69-63 win over visiting Santa Fe Indian School.

    The Lady Braves — ranked sixth in Class 4A, two spots below West — had reduced a 19-point deficit to 64-63 with 20 seconds remaining.

    Kimarie Ramone’s hard drive to the bucket got SFIS within one, but she missed what would’ve been the tying free throw.

  • Breakthrough victory for Cowgirls

    Nobody can fault strength of schedule for New Mexico Highlands women’s basketball team this season.

    NMHU, now 1-3 under new head coach Brianna Finch, has also played then-No. 1 West Texas A&M, coming deliciously close to an upset before falling 84-73.

    Anngelina Sanchez scored a game-high 19 points on 8-for-17 shooting to lead Highlands on Tuesday.

  • Let’s get it started

    Shaking out some opening-night kinks, the Robertson girls’ basketball team began the season — and the Leroy Barela era — with a 58-41 win over Ruidoso Monday night at Mike Marr Gym.

    Senior guard Kendall Garcia, who transferred from Class 6A Volcano Vista, was a hit in her Lady Cardinal debut. She scored a game-high 14 points and chipped in two rebounds and two steals.

    Everyone who played for the home side contributed, however, and the team’s diligence was key to getting Robertson rolling in a pivotal third quarter.

  • TCU, Baylor eye top four

    The Associated Press

    DES MOINES, Iowa — The final weekend in the Big 12 will illustrate both the risk and reward that come with the league’s decision to do away with its title game.

    The lack of a championship game might not always work out for the Big 12 in the playoff era.

    This year, it could help push Baylor and TCU into the final four.
