SANTA FE – A big loss to another District 2-4A team made the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team’s long journey to salvage its season considerably longer.
Los Alamos was in need of a win to get its season back on track, but its offense never got on track Tuesday. Los Alamos was limited to just four points in each of the first two quarters as it fell to the Santa Fe Demons 43-24 at Toby Roybal Memorial Gymnasium.
The Hilltoppers were held scoreless for nearly five minutes to open the game, then had a four-plus minute drought to close out the first half.
With Tuesday’s loss to the Demons, the Hilltoppers (2-21 overall, 1-5 in 2-4A) are now officially out of district title contention and are looking at a second straight finish in the 2-4A basement if they can’t rally in their final two games of the season.
It was a slow, plodding game for both teams, which combined for just 13 field goals in the first half. There were few offensive fireworks beyond a huge slam dunk by Santa Fe’s Keanyn Evans and no players got into double-figures – the top scorer of the night was Hilltopper Scott Gasway, who finished with 7.
