Caldwell Community College Men’s Basketball Starts Season With Success

Saiquone Harris had a game high 20 points in his debut for Caldwell Community College & Technical Institute as the Cobras won the season opener at Cleveland Community College Tuesday evening by a score of 95-76.

Harris was one of four Cobras scoring double-digits. Brandon Morgan added 18, Pharrell Boyogueno had 17, and Torrence Horton finished with 10.

Jashaun Hawkins led Cleveland in scoring with 18 points. Joshua Christian and Jakobe Dykes each had 10 points for the Yetis.

Cleveland opened the game on a 7-0 run before the Cobras found their footing, leading by as many as 11 points in the first half and taking a 44-35 advantage into the locker room at the half.

Caldwell opened the second half on an 11-2 and increased their lead to 18 points before Cleveland would make a run to cut the Cobras’ lead to 57-54 midway through the second half. Caldwell would respond and pull away over the final 10 minutes to secure the season opening victory and spoil the Yetis’ home opener.

Caldwell (1-0) returns to action Friday night at 6PM, facing Catawba Valley Community College at the Tarlton Complex in Hickory. Cleveland (0-2) will travel to Pitt Community College on Saturday for a 3PM tip.
