  • Girls basketball: LA hangs on to take overtime victory

    SANTA FE — Despite earning a comfortable 15-point victory in its first meeting against the Santa Fe Demons, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team wasn’t taking anything for granted Wednesday night.
    That turned out to be a good thing.
    With under 10 seconds remaining in regulation, Santa Fe’s Alix Jeantette, who hadn’t taken a shot all game long, buried a long-range 3-pointer to force overtime at Toby Roybal Gymnasium.

    LA-Academy girls hoops game canceled

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team has one less game to worry about this season.
    Tuesday, Los Alamos High School announced the girls basketball game between Los Alamos and Albuquerque Academy had been dropped from the schedule.
    The game was slated for Feb. 17, but Academy backed out, citing it had District 5AAAA games to finish before the end of the season.

  • Boys basketball: LA comes up just short in OT battle

    Thomas Russell’s steal late in the second overtime period might have been the play of the game.
    Thomas Russell’s right leg, however, decided to give up on him at the most inopportune moment.
    With the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team leading by one point with under a minute to play in the second overtime period, Russell stepped in front of a Santa Fe Demon pass about 12 feet from the timeline. Russell had a lane to the basket for, at worst, a trip to the foul line, but got a cramp in his right leg just as he started his shooting cycle.
