It’s one of the more interesting match-ups of the first round of the Class AAAA girls basketball state tournament.
Friday night, the Los Alamos Hilltoppers will take on the St. Pius X Sartans. Game time is set for 7 p.m. at Griffith Gymnasium.
While it’s rare that a No. 5 seed, like the Hilltoppers, meets an interesting 12th-seeded opponent, Friday’s game is the exception rather than the rule.
Los Alamos and St. Pius have plenty of history, some of that coming this season.
