The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team earned a big win over the Class 5A Sandia Matadors at home Friday night.

With no time left on the clock, Hilltopper guard Anna Scott buried a long-range 3-pointer to sink the Matadors.

The Matadors (10-4) tied the game with under 15 seconds left on the clock 43-43, but Scott got a step against her defender to the right of the key and buried a NBA-range 3 at the buzzer to give the Hilltoppers a 46-43 win.

It was the first victory for new Los Alamos head coach Ann Stewart.

More information on the game will be in Sunday’s Los Alamos Monitor.
