DENVER - We were four female independent journalists of a certain age. Let's say circling above and below 50. We were vodka-martini type of women, white wine chilled, maybe in extremis a whiskey on the rocks. We bonded while attending the Association of Health Care Journalists conference in Denver, between meetings on the epidemic of allergic reactions among children, the health dangers of fracking, and a seminar on the effort to map the brain. But while we hustled from meeting to meeting, our reporters' instincts drew us to the big story literally at our doorstep: Marijuana was now legal in Colorado.

Brandon Paul and D.J. Richardson made consecutive three-pointers to give Illinois back the lead with 6 minutes left and the seventh-seeded Illini pulled out a tough 57-49 win over No. 10 Colorado in an East Regional second-round game in Austin, Texas. Illinois led by 16 at halftime only to watch Colorado rip off a 21-2 run in the second to grab the lead. The Illini looked desperate until Paul and Richardson coolly knocked down their shots to put Illinois ahead, 48-44. Four free throws by Paul eventually put the game out of reach for the Illini (23-12)

Union boss Peter Nowak knows the pressure is on. But he also thinks the pressure is on for every team in Major League Soccer. Speaking during his weekly news conference Wednesday in the aftermath of Monday's 3-1 loss in Portland, Nowak was firm in his belief that judging any team on one game is unfair. "How can I say that after just one game? I don't think any team can," Nowak said. "No one in this league can say that their team is headed for the championship after just one game, not even [defending MLS champion]

WASHINGTON - Freddy Galvis entered Friday night's game at Nationals Park with just three hits in his last 20 at-bats. This week's four-game series at Colorado was the shortstop's roughest stretch of the season. Galvis' reasoning for the slump was simple: It was cold. "Really cold," Galvis said. The Phillies played all four of their games against the Rockies in low 50-degree temperatures. Galvis' bat was just as chilled. He was happy to be in Washington, where Friday's forecast was 75 degrees at the time of the first pitch.

LONDON - The news came first on Twitter, mixed into a stream of updates on the social lives of her friends and teammates. Back home, half a world away, a movie theater had turned into a killing field. Missy Franklin, who could win as many as seven Olympic swimming medals, goes to high school in Aurora, Colo. One of her best friends had talked excitedly for weeks about hitting the midnight opening of the new Batman movie. For a few hours on July 20, Franklin was not the breakout star of the U.S. women's swim team.

The call came at 1:30 a.m., and what her son said was about the last thing a mother would want to hear. " 'I was shot,' " Carey Rottman told his mother, Marcy Rottman, who lives in Feasterville, Bucks County.

Rottman was hit in the leg. In an interview with 6ABC, Marcy Rottman recounted the conversation she had with her son shortly after the horrific incident.

The lethal arsenal of the Colorado movie theater shooter was quickly identified Friday. He was armed with a Smith & Wesson assault rifle, a Remington shotgun, and a pair of .40-caliber Glock handguns, all expensive, all bought legally. Analysts say another thing appears clear: Even with 12 dead and 58 wounded, it's unlikely the shooting will spur more national gun control - even a reinstatement of the ban on assault rifles that lapsed eight years ago. Despite periodic mass shootings - five slain in May in Seattle, 13 dead on an Army base in Texas in 2009, and the deadliest U.S. mass shooting ever at Virginia Tech in 2007 with 32 slain - the political calculus seems locked down.
