ALBUQUERQUE — Few around the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls varsity basketball team said that anything would come easily this season.The Hilltoppers are in the midst of finding that out now.Los Alamos struggled in the first half against a solid Eldorado Eagles’ squad in the first round of the Albuquerque Public Schools Invitational Tournament.And although it battled back in the second half, Los Alamos could never fully get on track, falling big to Eldorado 63-35.Thursday’s game was played at Eldorado High School. The loss put Los Alamos into the consolation bracket, where it will face Albuquerque High, which fell hard to St. Pius X 73-38 immediately before the Los Alamos-Eldorado contest.“Good learning experience,” Hilltopper head coach Gerry Washburn said. “We had some stretches where we played very well. They’re starting to understand that they can establish and control the tempo of a game. Sometimes we just wanted to run, and we’re not ready to run yet.”Washburn has so far this season been preaching the mantra of patience to his team.
