Men's Basketball Suffers First Loss of Season

The Trojans suffered a tough 69-67 loss at the hands of Moraine Valley Community College in Palos Hills Nov. 10. The defeat was Triton's first of the young season as the Trojans fall to 5-1. The Cyclones shot the ball well early to build a 29-17 lead with 5 minutes left in first half. However, Triton would rally back with a 28-11 run to pull ahead 45-40 with 15 minutes to play in the second half. The contest from that point went back and forth before Moraine broke a 67-67 tie on a basket with 5.9 seconds remaining.
