LA, St. Pius clash tonight

-A A +A

Girls basketball > Sartans are 8-1, the No. 1 team in 4A this week

By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team will have its biggest contest of the nondistrict season tonight.
The Hilltoppers will take on the St. Pius X Sartans, currently the No. 1-ranked team in Class 4A, at Griffith Gymnasium.
The Sartans (8-1) are among the tallest teams in the state with five players listed at or near 5-foot-11, which has created match-up problems for many of the teams they’ve faced.
And the Sartans have been hard to stop this season on the offensive end. The Sartans are averaging a very healthy 66.4 points per game, placing them among the top offenses in the state.
The Hilltoppers will have to find a way to both slow down the powerful St. Pius offense, which has put up 80 or more points three times this season, including its last time out against Grants, topping the Pirates 80-61 in Grants.
The Sartans’ only loss this season came against Clovis’ Wildcats at a tournament the Wildcats were hosting — Clovis is the No. 1-ranked team in all of New Mexico, while St. Pius is right behind in all classifications.
The challenge for Los Alamos (6-7) tonight is a big one.
