-A A +A
By The Staff

The Los Alamos boys basketball team dropped a road game to Taos 49-46 on Tuesday night.
The loss snaps a three-game winning streak for Los Alamos and it was the first since Dec. 30, 2016.
Taos scored a buzzer-beating 3-pointer to drop the Hilltoppers record to 8-7 overall. The Tigers improved to 7-8 and remained unbeaten at home this season.
It was evenly matched for the full 32 minutes, as the teams went into halftime tied 22-22. Taos outscored Los Alamos 17-12 in the third quarter and the Hilltoppers were unable to hit open shots in the fourth quarter.
This was Taos’ first win against Los Alamos since Jan. 3, 2015.
Los Alamos failed to capitalize on a quality opportunity to go into District 2-5A play with an affirmative winning streak. Now, the Hilltoppers will travel to the Southeastern part of the state to face Artesia at 7 p.m. tonight and Lovington at 2 p.m. Saturday.
