It was a football-looking play that began to separate the No. 3 West Las Vegas girls’ team from Pojoaque Valley in an eventual 50-28 blowout Wednesday night at Gillie Lopez Gym.
Alisson Hill got a hold of a loose ball along the left wing, but encountered an Elkette in close quarters. So she hiked it backward like a center to a quarterback — in this case Annalysse Lucero. Lucero immediately fired up a 3-pointer.
The basket reclaimed the lead for the Lady Dons, 9-8, to end a close first quarter.
