LA hopes third time's the charm against Bernalillo

Boys basketball: ’Toppers will have to keep close eye on Brandon Saiz

By Mike Cote

Tonight’s District 2-4A semifinal boys basketball game could be a war and the Los Alamos Hilltoppers have their trenches all ready.
Los Alamos will take on the Bernalillo Spartans tonight for the right to advance to the district tournament championship game. Tip-off time is 7 p.m. in Bernalillo.
Tonight’s game will be the third meeting of the season between the two teams. Bernalillo has prevailed in both meetings, but Los Alamos had chances in both to pull off upsets.
Whether Los Alamos (11-16 overall, 4-5 in 2-4A) can pull of the upset, as well as build on the momentum it captured following a big win over Española Valley Tuesday night, remains to be seen.
But the Hilltoppers should know what to expect out of the Spartans (16-10, 4-4) based on their two previous contests.
“If we come out and execute like we’re supposed to and play defense like we did (Tuesday), we’ll be back in the district championship game,” Hilltopper head coach Fil Dominguez said. “We’ve got to concentrate on Bernalillo right now. Brandon Saiz is a very good player and they have a very good 3-point shooter in Trey Darnell.”
Bernalillo plays an effective inside-outside offense, spearheaded by Saiz, one of the best dribble-penetrating guards in the state.
