LA advances with win over Bernalillo

Girls basketball > ’Toppers will face Española Valley Thursday night

By Mike Cote

One of the big challenges facing the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team this season is putting together four solid quarters.
But that’s what Los Alamos has been shooting for here at the end of the season, and in its last two games, it has gotten closer.
Los Alamos opened up its District 2-4A tournament run Tuesday night at home with a big win over the Bernalillo Spartans. Los Alamos survived a big bump in the road at the tail end of the first half to bounce back in the second half.
The Hilltoppers’ Amber Logan and Kiana Zerr had big performances in the second half, with Logan taking control of the game when her team needed her most, to earn a 72-62 decision over the Spartans.
Logan dropped in 10 of her 14 points after the break to lead the Hilltoppers back after what could’ve been a game-changing run by the Spartans in the second quarter.
Logan said Los Alamos is playing with the mindset that it must still earn its way into the playoffs and survive as long as it can to make its best argument with the selection committee.
“We felt like we have to win if we want to get into the state tournament,” the junior point guard said. “In the second half, we came out and worked our butts off.”
