  • Third accuser targets Fine

    The Associated Press

    SYRACUSE, N.Y.  — Syracuse men’s basketball coach Jim Boeheim ran a closed practice Monday as sex abuse victims’ advocates questioned whether he should still coach following the firing of longtime assistant Bernie Fine, who has been accused of molestation by three men.

    As criticism swirled about Boeheim’s initial support of Fine and his verbal attacks on the accusers, the coach kept a low profile, seeking refuge in his office on the second floor of the Carmelo K. Anthony Basketball Center.

    NEW YORK  — With a Christmas Day tripleheader on everyone’s wish list and a tentative labor agreement in place, NBA owners and union officials went back to work Saturday, relaying details of the deal with hopes of cementing it quickly.

    After a 149-day lockout that ultimately will cost the league approximately a half-billion dollars in losses, a marathon bargaining session produced a handshake agreement earlier in the day — actually, just a few hours before daybreak.

  • Dons split first two games

    Taking down visiting Peñasco by six and then pushing Wingate in a five-point loss on the road, the West Las Vegas boys’ basketball team has officially opened the Ernie Rodriguez Era with a promising start.

    The Dons’ debut under their new head coach came Wednesday evening as they beat Peñasco 64-58 at Gillie Lopez Gym.

    Jordan Lopez led West with 21 points.

    Lopez’s steal and subsequent layup, followed by a defensive stop and a free throw by Benny Salinas capped a 7-0 start to the game for WLV.

  • Lady Sundevils romp

    Black Friday was followed by Red-and-Gold Saturday, and there were no good deals to be had for the West Las Vegas girls’ basketball team.

    Visiting Española Valley, a 64-28 winner, outworked the Lady Dons on rebounding and defense and had little trouble in an early-season blowout at Gillie Lopez Gym.

  • Greyhounds sprint past Cowboys

    Marcus Williams led all players with 21 points, and three teammates also scored in double figures but New Mexico Highlands lost a 104-98 shootout with Eastern New Mexico this past Wednesday night on a neutral court in Santa Rosa.

    Highlands battled back after falling behind by as much as 13 points — 79-66 at the eight-minute mark in the second half — but never got over the hump.

    NMHU (1-2) opens its Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference schedule with Metro State this Friday in Denver.

  • Santa Rosa grabs 2A football...

    A late touchdown lifted the Santa Rosa Lions to a 21-14 victory over Eunice in the Class 2A state championship football game Saturday in Santa Rosa.

    Eunice, seeded No. 1, had routed Tucumcari 49-20 and beat Tularosa 20-13 to reach the final. The third-seeded Lions made it by shutting out Loving 49-0 and then roaring past No. 2 Texico 48-13 last week.

    Meanwhile, in Class 3A, a pair of defense-oriented semifinals took place Saturday, setting up a St. Michael’s-Lovington showdown for the title.

  • La Plaza elections now slated...

    If you happen to be interested in helping guide and govern La Plaza Little League this coming spring and summer, you have the opportunity to step up to the proverbial plate.
