Boys basketball: LA holds on in final seconds to win

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team survived some scary final moments but hung on to win its opening round game of the District 2AAAA tournament Monday.

Los Alamos topped Bernalillo 41-40 Monday night. Brandon Saiz of Bernalillo converted the first two of a 3-shot attempt from the foul line with 2.7 seconds left in regulation, but the third shot, to tie the ballgame, was just a hair long.

Thomas Russell had 20 points for Los Alamos and Nick Baker finished with 11, all in the second half. Los Alamos advances to the second round of the district tournament where it will meet Santa Fe Tuesday night.

For more information on Monday's game, check Tuesday's Los Alamos Monitor.
