A missed three-pointer by CCC's Isabel Diaz preserved a 71-68 win for Marshalltown Community College in round one of the Marshalltown Classic.
Marshalltown's Clara Solsona made two free throws with two seconds remaining, which gave the Tigers the three-point advantage. With two minutes to go in regulation, the Raiders went up 64-62 on a jump shot by Monica Brooks. However, the Tigers closed out the match on a 9-4 run, capped off by Solsona's free throws.
"We fought till the end but came up a little short," said CCC head coach Billy Perkins. "Marshalltown did a good job attacking our defense and getting to the free throw line. It seemed that we never got going to finish the game."
With the loss, the Raiders are now 1-5 on the season.
Up next, CCC will meet Des Moines Area Community College in Saturday's second-round action of the Marshalltown Classic.
