JACONA — While Tuesday’s game may have gotten a little more interesting in the second half than the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team might have liked, it held on for a badly-needed victory.
Los Alamos, playing in the consolation round of the Ben Lujan Invitational Tuesday, looked like it had its contest against Peñasco well in-hand after about 2-1/2 quarters, but the Panthers, led by scrappy shooting guard Gerrick Romero, clawed their way back into the contest.
But, despite cutting deep into a 16-point Los Alamos lead near the midpoint of the third quarter to four in the fourth quarter, Los Alamos countered by hitting 9 of 11 free throws late in the game. Los Alamos picked up a 54-42 victory to advance to the fifth-place game Thursday afternoon.
