    JACONA — A tournament that started out a little shaky for the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team couldn’t have ended on much more solid footing.

    JACONA — Should the Los Alamos Hilltoppers wish to defend their Ben Lujan Invitational title, they will likely need a better showing the rest of the way than they had Monday night.

    The Hilltopper boys basketball team was nearly upset in the first round of the tournament by a struggling Socorro Warriors squad Monday at Ben Lujan Gymnasium. Socorro held a two-point lead with 3:40 remaining in regulation and was within one possession of tying the score with 13.2 seconds remaining.
