Men defeat PCC in hard fight

in Sports by

The men got back to their winning ways after defeating the Portland Panthers 91-86 Monday, Feb. 6. The win didn’t come easy as the first half both teams defended each other well.

“They are long and active on defense and have some good players,” head coach Daniel Leeworthy said before the game. “But if we match their energy and execute we will have a good game.” Both teams held each other to under 40 percent shooting in the first half.

The Riverhawk men’s defense continued to execute down the stretch and held the Panthers just 36.4 percent shooting overall. All while improving their own shooting percent from 38.7 percent shooting in the first half to 44.1 percent in the second.

UCC was later defeated by the Linn-Benton Roadrunners 97-90 Wednesday, Feb. 8.  UCC will play one more home game against the Mt. Hood Saints Saturday, Feb. 11 at 4:00 p.m. before heading north to Lane for a showdown against the frequent rival Titans in Eugene Wednesday, Feb. 15 in Gymnasium 202 off Gonyea Road at 5:30 p.m.
