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.
