Toppers rally to top Eagles

Boys basketball: Russell comes up big in 2nd quarter

By Mike Cote

After scoring just one field goal in a more than five minute stretch in the first quarter, Los Alamos Hilltopper Thomas Russell sparked his team in the second quarter.
Russell dropped in 10 straight points in the second quarter to rally the Hilltoppers over the Belen Eagles’ boys basketball team Tuesday night.
Meanwhile, the Hilltopper defense was stout throughout the contest, holding Belen to single-digit scoring in three quarters to win 46-33.
The win was an important one for the Hilltoppers, who not only topped a Class 4A opponent and snapping a three-game losing streak, but to give them some momentum heading into a very tough three-day tournament at Albuquerque Academy (see page 7).
“The first half we were a little patient,” Los Alamos first-year head coach Fil Dominguez said. “In the second half, we played ball our way. We were patient and we executed good shots. We had good quality shots in the second half.”
Los Alamos (2-2) actually trailed 9-8 after one period against Belen (1-2). Belen was executing its offense fairly well throughout the opening half but misfired on several open shot attempts, hitting just 3 of 9 from the field.
