Cypress hung tough in a near upset over Riverside College.

Andre Winn
Riverside, Calif. - Cypress nearly pulled off a big upset on the road, but fell just short in a 69-64 loss to Riverside Community College on the road Friday.

Cypress College (8-14, 1-6) stayed in the game until the very end, but a late run by RCC, and some untimely missed shots were the difference down the stretch for the Chargers in a close loss on the road to one of the elite teams in the OEC.

Andre Winn finished with game-highs in points scored (18) and assists (4), while also adding seven rebounds to his stat line. Winn scored his 18 points on a 6 of 16 shooting night that included a perfect 5 for 5 effort from the charity stripe.

Julius Von Hanzlik (11 points) and Kourtney Maxim (10) were the other two Chargers to score in double-digits. Montel Taylor had a game-high nine rebounds for Cypress.

The Chargers will host Saddleback College on Wednesday, February 1 at 7:30 p.m. This is their first home game scheduled in the second game time slot.
