Toppers post big win in 2-4A opener

-A A +A

After a rocky opening 2 minutes, 25 seconds Tuesday, Tarah Logan had seen enough and called a time-out to discuss the situation with her team.
To start the game, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team threw the ball away on six straight possessions, failing to get a shot off during that time. After the time-out, however, Los Alamos seemed to settle in and to get back to what it does best.
The Hilltoppers would outscore the Bernalillo Spartans 14-2 in the opening quarter of Tuesday’s District 2-4A opener and cruise to a 49-34 victory at Griffith Gymnasium.
“They were a little nervous for their first district game,” said Logan, Los Alamos’ head coach. “They were a little worried. For us, it’s all about confidence. One of the talking points we had coming in was about being confident.”
The Hilltoppers’ confidence was boosted by center Monika Teter, who finished the opening period with eight points of her 12 points. Teter might have had more, taking advantage of a surprisingly-light presence by the Spartans in the paint, but got into foul trouble midway through the second quarter, then wasn’t needed as much in the second half as the Hilltoppers started to pull away.
