In the chill of winter, there are worse places to be than the southern part of the state.
That’s precisely where the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls basketball teams will be starting Thursday.
Both Los Alamos hoops teams will take part in a pair of tournaments going on in Roswell this weekend. Los Alamos’ boys will make an appearance at the Poe Corn Invitational, hosted by Roswell’s Coyotes, and Los Alamos’ girls will be in the Goddard Holiday Classic.
Both tournaments run through Saturday.
The good news for the Los Alamos boys is they will be going into the Poe Corn tournament with some momentum, coming off their first win of the season Dec. 14 against Bernalillo.
The bad news, however, is that the Hilltoppers will be facing the No. 1 team in Class 4A according to the first MaxPreps rankings of the season, which was released Monday. The Roswell Coyotes are undefeated in seven outings so far and are winning their contests by an average margin of more than 25 points.
The Poe Corn tournament, one of the longest-running basketball tournaments in the state, has featured all Class 4A teams in recent years, including Los Alamos (1-6), which has become an annual invitee.
