Come-from-behind win highlights Cyclones' week
Moraine Valley College’s men have a fondness for coming from behind on the basketball court, and that strategy worked out well for the Cyclones last Tuesday.
A slow start and flat performance put Moraine in arrears of the College of DuPage at halftime, but the Cyclones rallied behind Kyle Ward and Johnte Shannon in the second half to bag a 78-66 win over the Chaparrals. Ward and Shannon combined for 26 points and were included among five double-digit scorers.
Also providing solid performances on Moraine’s behalf were Paulius Ostruskevicius (15 points, five rebounds), Cameron Juillerat (15 points, three assists), Stagg alumnus Brett Kaiser (12 points, 11 rebounds) and Des’nique Harris (eight points, nine rebounds), In addition to his team-high 16 points, Ward had five rebounds and three assists, while Shannon complemented his 10 markers with six steals, five rebounds and four assists.
