Girls basketball: Toppers win big on road Saturday

-A A +A
By The Staff

Although the Los Alamos Hilltoppers scored a lopsided road win Saturday night, it won’t have much opportunity to savor the flavor, for a variety of reasons.

Los Alamos throttled the cellar-dwelling Bernalillo Spartans Saturday at Bernalillo, 58-24, but it has much bigger fish to fry this week.

Tuesday, the Hilltoppers will face the Española Valley Sundevils, a game the Hilltoppers must win to keep any hope of a regular season district title alive. Following Tuesday’s game at Española Valley, the Hilltoppers will host the Capital Jaguars Friday night, another potential must-win game for them.

While Los Alamos seems to have some mojo going into this week, head coach Tarah Logan is quick to point out that her team seemed to have a good thing going headed into its first meeting with Española Valley Jan. 31 and that game didn’t turn out so well for Los Alamos.

“Last time we played Española, we were coming off a 49-point win against Bernalillo,” she said. “We’re not taking anything for granted.”

Los Alamos played its first game against Española Valley without the services of starting point guard Tyree Richins, but Richins made her presence felt Saturday against the Spartans.
