Girls basketball: LA opens 2AAAA at Taos

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

Everything up to this point has just been a warm-up. Now the real work begins.

Los Alamos’ girls basketball team heads to Taos tonight to take on the homestanding Tigers in the opener of the District 2AAAA season for both teams. Tonight’s game is scheduled to start at 7 p.m.

This will also start the first 2AAAA race for first-year Hilltopper coach Tarah Logan, who thinks her team is ready to go.

Logan said her team would have to be ready to handle full-court pressure by district time. While Los Alamos has had spotty success against pressure for most of the season, its last two outings against Belen and Del Norte convinced her that things are starting to head in the right direction.

“I feel a whole lot better,” Logan said following Friday’s road win over Del Norte. “Everyone we play (in district) will press us like crazy. We were executing our press break as well as we have all year. (Other teams) will have to take it off or else we’ll be getting layup after layup.”

Taos, meanwhile, has been about as streaky as a team can be, both good and bad, in the 2008-09 nondistrict season. Taos (5-8) has had two short winning streaks — two games and three games — in between three losing streaks.
