In just seven minutes, his team trailed by seven goals. But the coach's plan was working just fine. It was Bill Tierney's first game as coach at the University of Denver in 2010. He wanted the Pioneers to get a taste of big-time college lacrosse and they opened the season with a 15-9 loss at Syracuse's Carrier Dome. The freshmen who were on that Denver team are now seniors. On Saturday, the fourth-seeded Pioneers (14-4) will have a chance to show how far they have come when they meet No. 1 Syracuse (15-3)

DENVER - A crowd of marijuana smokers expected to swell to 80,000 gathered Saturday in Denver to mark the counterculture holiday known as 4/20 on the first celebration since Colorado and Washington state made pot legal for recreational use. Reggae music filled the air, and so did the smell of marijuana, as revelers gathered by midmorning in a park just beside the state Capitol. Few police were in sight, though public marijuana use is still prohibited here. "People aren't afraid to come out and celebrate it the way they used to be," said Charles Bade, 52, of Denver.

NEW YORK - The Denver Post won a Pulitzer Prize on Monday for its coverage of the movie-theater massacre in Aurora, Colo., while the New York Times captured four awards for reporting on the rise of a new aristocracy in China, the business practices of Apple and Wal-Mart and a harrowing avalanche. The Associated Press received the award in breaking news photography for its coverage of the civil war in Syria. In awards that reflected the rapidly changing media world, the online publication InsideClimate News won the Pulitzer for national reporting for its reports on problems in the regulation of the nation's oil pipelines.

DENVER - Prosecutors in the Colorado theater massacre case have rejected an offer from suspect James Holmes to plead guilty in exchange for avoiding the death penalty, saying the proposal can't be considered genuine because the defense has repeatedly refused to give them information needed to evaluate it. No plea agreement exists, prosecutors said in a scathing court document Thursday, and one "is extremely unlikely based on the present information available...

LeBron James left one rebound shy of a triple-double. That's about all the Heat could complain about. James finished with 24 points, 11 assists, and nine rebounds, and the Heat won their 27th straight by running away at the finish to beat the Magic, 108-94, on Monday night in Orlando, Fla. Miami pushed its lead to 20 before Heat coach Erik Spoelstra emptied the bench in what was his 250th win with the team. The Heat are within six games of matching the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers for the longest winning streak in NBA history.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - It's over.

It was the Sixers' highest-scoring game of the season. Their previous high (109) came in a loss to Oklahoma City.

Defensive end Elvis Dumervil , 29, chose Baltimore over Denver, agreeing to a five-year deal, Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said Sunday. Financial numbers were not given. Dumervil, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, had 631/2 sacks in seven seasons in Denver. He agreed to reduce his 2013 salary from $12 million to $8 million, but the paperwork didn't reach the NFL offices in time and the Broncos had to release him. The Chicago Bears agreed to a one-year contract with former Carolina linebacker James Anderson , 29, two days after they signed D.J. Williams , 30, from Denver to replace Brian Urlacher , 34. GOLF: Tiger Woods had to wait one more day to try to reclaim No. 1 in the world.
