Kyle Warner scored 12 points as the Titans lose their sixth game of the season.

The Titans played host to the College of the Siskiyous on Jan. 3 after a long vacation during the winter break. The men came out with a lot on energy in the first half, but came up short in the second half to lose the game 81-65.

There was a lot of back and forth in the first half of the game. LCC was able to hold on to a one-point lead at halftime, 43-42.

Freshman point guard Matt Juillerat, who finished the half with 13 points and sophomore forward Kyle Warner, who added 10 points and five rebounds, led the Titans in the first half.

The second half was dominated by the speed, defense and athleticism of the Eagles (6-11). They forced 12 turnovers in the half.

The Titans were held to scoring 22 points in the second half, four of which were Juillerat's.

"With all the adversity losing players this season, I tried to put more of the scoring burden on myself and I was able to get some good looks early against Siskiyous," Juillerat said.

The Titans return to the court on Jan. 8 to Linn-Benton. The game is scheduled for a 6 p.m. tip-off.
