Her nickname is “The Silent Assassin,” but Alyssa Lopez was anything but quiet in crunch time on Friday night in Gunnison, Colo.
Lopez snagged a defensive rebound, drew a foul, then sank two free throws in the closing seconds to lift New Mexico Highlands’ women to a 67-65 triumph at Western State Colorado.
She finished with a team-high 15 points to go with seven rebounds, three assists and a steal in 37 minutes of work. She was a perfect 8 for 8 at the charity stripe, offsetting a difficult night from the floor (3-for-13 shooting).
