Tonight, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team has a chance to set the tone in a big way for the remainder of the District 2-4A season.
After dismantling the Bernalillo Spartans in their 2-4A opener Tuesday night, the Hilltoppers take on the Santa Fe Demons at Griffith Gymnasium.
Los Alamos (11-8 overall, 1-0 in district), which has won two of three games under new head coach Ann Stewart, can take the early advantage in the district race, not to mention a huge psychological advantage over the rest of 2-4A, with a win tonight.
That win, however, isn’t going to come easily.
The Demons, at 17-0, are the only undefeated basketball team in the state of New Mexico, boys or girls, and are ranked No. 1 in this week’s Class 4A power ratings.
Santa Fe, which spent most of its first two years as an also-ran in district, came on last year to grab a runner-up finish and gave defending district champ Española Valley a serious run for its money.
Heading into this season, the Demons, with a very talented — and relatively young — group of players, were expected to make noise in 4A. What they’ve been is a rock band cranked all the way to 11.
Santa Fe is averaging a whopping 60.8 points per game while giving up less than 40 points per outing.
