Late-game struggles continued for the City College men’s basketball team Jan. 14 as the Panthers came up short against the Cosumnes River College Hawks.

The Panthers failed to find rhythm early in the game, allowing the Hawks to get out to a 15-point lead by the midway point of the first half and 18 points by the three-minute mark. Defensive struggles around the basket continued to plague the Panthers as they failed to find an answer for Hawks forward TJ Williams, who scored 11 points in the opening period on his way to a season high 20 points in the game.
