LA upsets Deming, advances to Pit

-A A +A
By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team broke open a tight ballgame in a big way Friday night in Deming.
With about 7 minutes remaining in the game, the Hilltoppers held a slim 2-point edge over Deming’s Wildcats.
From there, Los Alamos outscored Deming 24-9 to win going away and punch its ticket to the state Class 4A quarterfinals.
With that push, 9th-seeded Los Alamos bounced 8th-seeded Deming from the playoffs, 62-45.
This will be the first trip the Hilltoppers have made to the quarterfinals in three seasons. Their last appearance in The Pit was in 2010. They were toppled in the opening round by Grants on the road in each of the last two seasons.
Los Alamos led the entire second half but couldn’t shake Deming.
Both teams had trouble converting from the field in Friday’s game but Los Alamos dominated on the glass, outrebounding Deming 46-31.
The Hilltoppers (17-12) held the Wildcats to just one point for the first four minutes of the game, but the Wildcats (17-10) would rally late in the quarter and lead 16-13.
