Boys basketball: Eagles have hot shooting night from the perimeter Tuesday

By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team couldn’t stop a long-range barrage from the Belen Eagles Tuesday night on the road.
Belen hit 12 3-pointers against Los Alamos’ defense, which struggled to get through screens near the perimeter.
Los Alamos fell to 0-6 on the year with a tough set of games coming up, falling at Belen 69-47.
The 47 points scored by the Hilltoppers was actually their best output of the season, but head coach Fil Dominguez said he wasn’t impressed with his team’s defensive performance in its last two outings.
“Our defense is really porous right now,” he said. “We’re not getting up to the shooters. Our kids need to take their defense personally. We work on defense every day in practice. We look good in practice but that’s not translating to the games.”
Los Alamos surrendered 66 points against St. Michael’s last Thursday. Tuesday, the Eagles had the hot hands throughout.
Los Alamos will take part in the very tough Joe Armijo Invitational starting Thursday. It will play Las Cruces Mayfield, a Class 5A team, in the opening round.
So far this season, Mayfield has played mostly teams from around the El Paso, Texas, area.
The Armijo Invitational is hosted by Albuquerque Academy.
