By The Staff

No All-State preseason pick? No problem.

Playing without its star point guard, Tyree Richins, the Los Alamos Hilltoppers still managed to continue its current winning streak Tuesday night with a victory over the Belen Eagles.

Los Alamos center Taylor Ealey dropped in a game-high 20 points as the Hilltoppers knocked off the Eagles 43-29 Tuesday night in Belen.

Richins stayed at home Tuesday, feeling under the weather, but Los Alamos’ reserves picked up their game in her absence.

The Hilltoppers didn’t get much going in the first quarter offensively, scoring only four points, but held the Eagles to just two points in that same eight minutes.

Following the first quarter, Los Alamos head coach Logan said, the Hilltoppers saw what they were going to have to do.

“The girls were pretty nervous to start with,” Logan said. “They got off to a slow start, not a bad start, but a slow start...but then they realized they were going to have to win this game with or without Tyree there.”

Things picked up a little bit in the second quarter, with the Hilltoppers outscoring the Eagles 13-7 to take a 17-9 lead into the break.

Belen (3-7), which has had an up-and-down season so far on the offensive end, managed only 7 points in the third quarter as well.
