Facing one of their toughest opponents to date this season, the Cyclones put up a good fight against the No. 3 South Suburban College Bulldogs but came up short in an 81-70 loss.
Most of this game was close between the region foes with the Cyclones in the lead most of the first half. At halftime, Moraine Valley was only down 36-33. The Bulldogs made a run in the second half, however, pushing the Cyclones to a 12-point deficit. But Moraine Valley fought back again and clawed within two. A few costly turnovers at the end forced the Cyclones to play the fouling game, which led to a number of sunken Bulldog free throws.
