Chargers Rally Falls Short in Conference Opener

Montel Taylor scored a game-high 25 points.

Cypress, Calif. - Cypress College (7-9, 0-1) made a valiant effort in the second half to get back in the game, but Riverside Community College (7-6, 1-0) was able to hold on for a 74-62 victory over the Chargers in the Orange Empire Conference opener at Don Johnson Court on Wednesday.

Montel Taylor led all scorers with a 25 point performance on 9 of 13 shooting from the floor, and 7 of 9 from the free throw line. Harris also added eight rebounds on the night.

Andre Winn finished with a team-high nine rebounds, and tossed in 14 points against the Tigers. Julius Von Hanzlik ended with 13 points and six boards.

A big halftime deficit, and too many miscues on offense proved fatal for the Chargers in the end. Cypress' 19 turnovers were too much to overcome down the stretch in the 74-62 conference season opening loss at home to Riverside Community College.

The Chargers have a tough task ahead of them when they travel to South County to take on Saddleback College on Friday, January 6 at 5:30 p.m.
