The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team had chances to pull of a second victory over the Capital Jaguars in as many chances Wednesday night, but couldn’t close the deal in regulation.
Now, the Hilltoppers must sit back and wait to find out where they will play next.
Los Alamos battled all the way back from a 12-point deficit in the third quarter to tie the score early in the fourth quarter.
Los Alamos held a couple of late leads over the Jaguars, but the Jaguars forced overtime.
In overtime, the Jaguars outscored the Hilltoppers by five points to grab a 54-49 win at Edward Ortiz Gymnasium.
The game was the season finale for Los Alamos, which will have to go the longest, toughest route possible to have any chance of sneaking into the postseason.
Los Alamos will be on the road for the duration of the upcoming District 2-4A tournament. It will play Monday, although where it will play won’t be known until the other four teams in the district wrap up their seasons Saturday night.
The race for the 2-4A regular season crown got quite a bit more complicated Wednesday. The Santa Fe Demons, who were right on the heels of the Española Valley Sundevils heading into this week’s play, dropped a 77-65 decision at Bernalillo.
