There have been several games this season in which the Los Altos High boys basketball team has suffered through a long stretch without scoring. The Eagles endured two such spells Friday night – one too many to beat Palo Alto.
The visiting Vikings prevailed 40-36, despite producing just two points in the fourth quarter. That’s because Los Altos also scored only one bucket in the fourth – and it came in the last minute. Simon Heck made a low-post layin off a pass from fellow sophomore Nolan Brennan with 45 seconds left.
