Boys basketball: Piedra Vista connects on 10 3-pointers to win Saturday’s game

By Mike Cote

The quick start by the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team Saturday night couldn’t be sustained against a barrage from the perimeter by the Piedra Vista Panthers.
Los Alamos started its home opener on an 8-0 run, but that lead all but evaporated by the end of the quarter and just four minutes into the second quarter, it was the Panthers who were well in control of the contest.
Piedra Vista hit 20 field goals, 10 of those free 3-point range as it spoiled Los Alamos’ 2012-13 home opener, winning 66-42.
Jacob Armijo, who came off the bench in the first quarter, hit three 3-pointers in the third quarter and finished with a game-high 17 points to lead the Panthers to the win.
Armijo made some tough shots from the perimeter, but also took advantage of the Hilltopper defense’s slow rotation out.
“That’s the sign of a young team right now,” Hilltopper head coach Fil Dominguez said. “But we’re definitely getting better. I told the kids after the game that was a team that would’ve beat us by 60 points this summer.”
