-A A +A
By The Staff

The Los Alamos girls basketball team dropped an opportunity on Saturday to finish a regular season tournament on a high note.
After holding Piedra Vista to only 10 points in the first half, the Hilltoppers were outscored 33-7 in the second half and fell 43-28 in the third place game of the Lady Tiger Rumble in Aztec.
The Hilltoppers still led with two minutes left in the third quarter but a Piedra Vista bucket gave the Panthers a 24-23 lead that they wouldn’t relinquish.
In the second round on Friday, Los Alamos fell to host Aztec 61-33.
The Hilltoppers allowed 17 points in the first half, before falling apart defensively in the second half and allowing 44 points. Los Alamos also led 18-17 at the half but struggled on offense in the final 16 minutes and was limited to 15 points.
Los Alamos moved to 4-12 overall after the tournament and hosted Taos on Tuesday after the Los Alamos Monitor’s Wednesday print deadline.
