  • Boys basketball: LA comes up...

    Thomas Russell’s steal late in the second overtime period might have been the play of the game.

    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.
