'Toppers thumped in opener

-A A +A

Boys Basketball > LA will host Pintos tonight

By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team was thumped in its season opener Saturday.
Los Alamos traveled to meet the Piedra Vista Panthers Saturday night in what turned out to be its season opener. Los Alamos had been scheduled to open at home Nov. 22, but that game and the following night’s game against Kirtland Central, were both postponed due to weather concerns.
Instead, the Hilltoppers took on the Panthers in Farmington to open the season, and the Panthers prevailed handily.
Piedra Vista had three players finish in double-figures, including a 22-point performance by junior Troy Dixon, as the Panthers (1-0) rolled to an 82-53 victory.
The Panthers shot a red-hot 52 percent from the field against Los Alamos, which prides itself on defense, and connected on 10 3-pointers.
Los Alamos (0-1) is trying to get itself established this season following a disastrous 1-26 showing in 2012-13, but this season hasn’t gotten off to the start the program was hoping for.
It will have a chance to break into the win column tonight at home, however, when it takes on Moriarty.
Moriarty’s Pintos (2-1) will go into tonight’s game off two straight victories against a pair of Class 3A opponents, Las Vegas Robertson and Taos.
