  • Thomas back in Denver

    The Associated Press
    ENGLEWOOD, Colo.  — Peyton Manning’s top target is back. In the building, at least.

    Demaryius Thomas returned from bereavement leave Monday, but his flight from Georgia didn’t get back in time for him to participate in a spirited practice at Dove Valley that featured three scuffles.

    Thomas missed the first five days of training camp for the AFC champs following the death last week of his grandmother.

  • Scott to coach Lakers?

    The Associated Press

    LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Lakers have waited nearly three months to hire a new coach, and they’re apparently making Byron Scott wait a few more days.

    Scott said this weekend that he has been hired by the Lakers, but the club insisted Sunday that no deal has been reached.

    Scott, who won three NBA titles as a shooting guard for the Lakers, told KCBS-TV he will take over the club, which hasn’t had a coach since Mike D’Antoni resigned April 30.

  • All-Stars in Duke City

    A last hurrah — at least on the high school level — will come for four of the Meadow City’s premier athletes this week in North-South All-Star competition.

    Recent Robertson graduates Juliana Guerin and Dave Romero III will represent Las Vegas in the North tennis team’s matches on Monday and Tuesday in Albuquerque. Juan Carlos Fulgenzi of Robertson is the head coach for the North team.

  • Isotopes make bank vs. Reno

    By Lee VanHorn
    Albuquerque Isotopes

    Before Friday night, the Albuquerque Isotopes had played six straight one-run games, but that all ended with a season-high 16-run outburst by the Isotopes on Friday against the Reno Aces.

    Albuquerque (51-56) routed Reno (56-51) 16-7 for its ninth win in its last 11 tries.

    Neither team got the offense going through the first two frames, but the Isotopes quickly put the game out of reach in the third inning.
