The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team will head into tonight’s District 2-4A second round off a big win over the weekend.
Los Alamos needed overtime, but it tripped up the Artesia Bulldogs Saturday afternoon, 57-56 at a neutral site game in Vaughn.
Saturday’s game was the regular season finale for both teams — a game that came about because Los Alamos’ game originally scheduled wit Albuquerque Academy earlier this season was canceled and Artesia was the only taker to fill that hole in the Hilltoppers’ schedule.
But with the Hilltoppers’ win, it became a happy turn of events. The Hilltoppers and Bulldogs went into the game with similar records and a similar ranking according to the MaxPreps.com website, which is a key factor in the judging the playoff-worthiness of teams around the state.
With that victory, Los Alamos (12-14) took a big step toward securing an at-large bid into the state playoffs.
However, Los Alamos has a chance to make an at-large nod unnecessary.
The Hilltoppers will face the Bernalillo Spartans in the first round of the District 2-4A tournament tonight. Game time is 7 p.m. at Griffith Gymnasium.
