Girls basketball: LA turns the ball over 21 times in 1st half

The problems the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team needed to fix to keep pace with one of the top programs in the state didn’t get fixed Wednesday night.
For its previous two games, Los Alamos struggled keeping a handle on the ball and varying up its offense from an almost complete inside shooting game. Los Alamos knew full well going into Wednesday’s contest it would need to do both.
Unfortunately for the Hilltoppers, they weren’t able to accomplish either.
Meanwhile, the Kirtland Central Broncos, perennial state title contenders and the No. 1-ranked team in Class 4A, showed why it’s the No. 1 team, getting four players into double-figures – none of them playing much more than three quarters – as they won in a rout, 64-29 at Griffith Gymnasium.
Historically, the match-up between the Hilltoppers and Broncos hasn’t been a good one for Los Alamos. The Broncos’ aggressive, attacking style of play seems to give the Hilltoppers fits year in and year out.
“Traditionally, that’s been there for a long time,” Kirtland Central head coach Kevin Holman said. “They preach basketball to these girls, they work them hard, the youth programs are excellent. We work them hard in practice, where playing games are their reward.”
