WEB SPECIAL: Toppers, Sundevils meet in girls quarters Tuesday

-A A +A

Here they go again.

For the fifth time this season, the Los Alamos Hilltopper and Española Valley Sundevil girls basketball teams will face off against each other. And for the third straight time, it will be each other’s biggest game of the season.

Los Alamos and Española Valley, rivals since the doors opened on the two schools, will take each other on in the Class AAAA quarterfinals Tuesday at The Pit in Albuquerque. Game time is scheduled for 1:15 p.m. The winner will face the winner between top-seeded Kirtland Central and ninth-seeded Del Norte in the state semifinals Thursday.

The Sundevils, who won both the District 2AAAA regular season and tournament championships, beating the Hilltoppers in both deciding games, have taken three of the four head-to-head meetings between the two teams this season.

“We know how they play,” Los Alamos head coach Tarah Logan said. “We beat them once and we know what it takes to beat them. Our girls are ready to win. We need to go down there, execute our offense and play our game.”
