GIRDWOOD, Alaska (AP) -- Utah's Ted Ligety won the giant slalom at the U.S. Alpine Championships today -- his fifth national title and second this week.

Ligety led after the first run and finished with a combined time of 2 minutes, 22.34 seconds. That was more than two seconds better than Will Brandenburg, who finished at 2:24.66.

Ligety also won the combined at Alyeska Resort on Sunday.

Bode Miller was in second place after the first run but did not ski the second.

Ligety says Miller may not have been feeling well, but he was surprised when the 2005 World Cup overall champion didn't complete the race.

Cody Marshall finished third.
