Basketball > LA girls will likely get in but as a lower seed in Class 4A

By The Staff

It’s an annual source of speculation and belly achin’ around New Mexico, and it returns today.
The New Mexico Activities Association announces the selection and seeding for the upcoming state basketball playoffs. The selections will be announced at 6 p.m. on the NMAA’s website, nmact.org.
Los Alamos fans will be waiting anxiously to see where exactly the Hilltopper girls end up.
The Hilltopper girls aren’t locks to get into the playoffs, but it’s not likely they will get frozen out, either. The Hilltopers have been ranked in the 12-15 range in 4A most of the year and were No. 15 heading into the District 2-4A championship tournament.
Head coach Ann Stewart said after Thursday’s loss to the Española Valley Sundevils that she thought Los Alamos might end up with something in the neighborhood of a No. 14 seed based on its 2013-14 record.
Los Alamos finished 13-15 on the regular season, but, more importantly to the selection committee, was 6-11 against other 4A teams. Five of those losses came at the hands of Santa Fe and Española Valley, the Hilltoppers’ top two district opponents.
Santa Fe won the 2-4A tournament title, knocking off Española Valley 51-48 in overtime Friday night.
