The Los Alamos boys basketball team ended a four-game losing streak by defeating Albuquerque Academy 50-44 in a District 2-5A tilt on Friday in Albuquerque.
The Hilltoppers improved to 9-10 overall and 1-1 in district play.
Against the Chargers, Los Alamos took a 24-19 lead at halftime after outscoring Academy 11-9 in the second quarter. The Hilltoppers were able to hold off an Academy comeback effort in the second half to avoid falling behind in the District 2-5A standings.
Los Alamos is also beginning to use its size on the offensive end. Cade Gasway, a senior post, led the Hilltoppers with 14 points, while 6-foot-2 senior forward Isaac Fason finished with nine. Last week against Del Norte, 6-foot-3 post Troy Hammock scored a season-high 18 points.
Los Alamos will host Espanola Valley at 7 p.m. Saturday at Griffith Gym.

The Hilltoppers game against Goddard, which was scheduled for 1 p.m. Saturday, was cancelled due to snow and dangerous driving conditions on roads between Roswell and Los Alamos.
