A tight, uneven contest wasn’t exactly what the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team was hoping for Thursday.
But the most important part, a win over a quality opponent, was exactly what the Hilltoppers wanted.
The Hilltoppers, led by a big outing from seniors Alex Kirk and Zach Parks, held on despite a late rally to knock off the St. Michael’s Horsemen 54-52 at Perez-Shelley Gymnasium in Santa Fe. The victory upped their record to a spotless 4-0 on the young season.
Kirk and Parks both finished with 21 points, with Kirk posting his first triple-double of the season. Parks hit 3 3-pointers on the evening to balance Kirk’s presence on the inside.
Los Alamos, according to head coach Alan Kirk, started playing a little tentative in the fourth quarter, which the Horsemen took advantage of as they made a big charge late.
Nevertheless, a win over St. Mike’s, one of the premier Class AAA programs in the state, is a good win no matter how it comes.
