Toppers grab big win at home Friday

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

It was a big night for the seniors on the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team in more ways than one.
In the home season finale for the Hilltoppers, they put together one of their best team showings of the year and did so against their arch-rival, the Española Valley Sundevils.
Los Alamos made key buckets during a big second quarter push that propelled it to a 56-45 win against Española Valley Friday night at Griffith Gymnasium.
It was Senior Night for the Hilltoppers, but the team got contributions from seniors and underclassmen alike. Senior guard Nate Carver dropped in 17 points while sophomore Franklin Archuleta added five points during a 16-4 Los Alamos scoring run in the second quarter.
“We rode the younger guys,” said Los Alamos veteran Thomas Russell following the victory. “They’ve been here the whole season and tonight they stepped up. We almost have to have eight or nine guys that can come off the bench.”
Friday’s first half was in sharp contrast to most of Los Alamos’ first halves this season. Instead of getting off to a sluggish start and having to roar back in the second half – usually to wind up on the short end anyway – Los Alamos came out hot from the get-go.
