    The Associated Press
    ALBUQUERQUE — University of New Mexico officials said Monday that $432,000 in skybox suite revenue from the university’s basketball arena has gone uncollected.

    Following the announcement, New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas sent a letter to University of New Mexico Interim President Chaouki Abdallah on Tuesday, requesting records regarding the recent revelations of uncollected payments.

  • LV 8-10 softball makes final four

    Las Vegas Little League’s 8-10 softball team is headed to a second weekend of state tournament competition — the coveted championship round.

    The LVLL squad endured a loss in its opening game of the state tourney, but recovered to win twice in the playback bracket this past weekend in Portales.

  • Rally falls just short; 51s win

    Albuquerque’s ferocious rally at the end of Sunday night’s finale with the Las Vegas 51s produced six unanswered runs.

    Trouble is, the Isotopes needed eight.

    As a result, visiting Las Vegas escaped with a 13-11 victory to bring a curtain down on the first part of the Pacific Coast League schedule. Triple-A teams are on All-Star break through Wednesday, when the PCL takes on the International League in its version of the Midsummer Classic.

  • Mora to host 3-on-3 hoops

    Two of the Mora Valley’s greatest passions — the sport of basketball and the community’s annual fiesta celebration — will be a part of one big event later this month.

    The Mora Fiestas Basketball Jam, a 3-on-3 tournament, will be held July 22-23 in conjunction with the annual Mora Fiestas. Games will be situated at Montoya Gym and adjacent courts on the Mora High School campus.

    The tournament will serve as a benefit for the Mora Valley Youth Basketball Program, organizers say.

  • Isotopes herd 'Cats, 4-3

    Their bullpen hasn’t always been exemplary this summer, but on Thursday night, the Albuquerque Isotopes got three innings of shutout baseball to close out a 4-3 victory over visiting Sacramento.

    Austin House, Zac Rosscup and Carlos Estevez combined to limit the River Cats to three hits, no walks and no runs in the final 3 1/3 innings. Estevez picked up a save, holding up  Shane Carpenter’s 11-hit, three-run start for the pitching win. Carpenter is 5-6.

    Every Isotope score proved crucial in a nip-and-tuck clash.
