RCC played the game without starting guard Nicco Montgomery.

“Missing a Nicco was a big loss, he handles the ball and runs the team,” RCC head coach Dan Swift said. “ We just didn’t make the big play down the stretch.”

RCC scoring: DeAaron Hearn, 21; Josh Davis, 13; Richard Burch, 11; Densel Smith, 9; Chris Jahr, 7; Jordan Jarland, 5; Taylor Oetken, 2
