Spartans' hot shooting night sinks LA Saturday

-A A +A
By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team, despite its struggles, had a chance Saturday night to put itself right in the mix of the District 2-4A race.
Unfortunately, the Bernalillo Spartans, and more specifically Carl Herrera, had other plans.
Bernalillo, itself jockeying for position in the 2-4A standings, came out firing in the first half. Bernalillo nailed five first half 3-pointers to open up a big lead and never looked back.
The Spartans prevailed Saturday at Griffith Gymnasium, 63-42.
Along the way, Bernalillo shot a blistering 25 of 41 (61.0 percent) from the floor, missing just eight attempts in each half.
Herrera, who has been Los Alamos’ main nemesis in their two district meetings this season, followed up his 20-point performance in Bernalillo Jan. 22, had 27 points at Griffith Gym.
Herrera himself had five 3s in the game and scored 10 points in the second quarter, keying a big period for his team.
Bernalillo took control of the game in that second quarter, outscoring Los Alamos 18-7.
“They came out and got going early,” Hilltopper head coach Mike Kluk said. “We didn’t do anything to take them out of that groove.”
