    SAN FRANCISCO — The NBA is investigating a report of an audio recording in which a man identified as Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling tells his girlfriend not to bring black people to games.

    NBA spokesman Mike Bass said in a statement Saturday that the league is in the process of authenticating the validity of the recording posted on TMZ’s website. Bass called the comments “disturbing and offensive” and said the league would have no further comment.

  • Quintana wins 4th golf tourney

    Having ensured herself a return trip to the state golf tournament next month, West Las Vegas’ Joedy Quintana has turned her attention to winning tournaments (not to mention track meets).

    Quintana shot an 84 in Monday’s West Las Vegas Invitational held at New Mexico Highlands University’s Gene Torres Golf Course. That was three strokes better than runner-up Briana Paiz (87) of Raton, who’d essentially made it a two-person chase for the individual girls’ championship.

    Robertson’s Andrea Vaisa came in third, shooting a 93.
