LAS VEGAS -- No. 17-ranked Rocky Mountain College fell to No. 6 Concordia University of California 86-78 on Friday afternoon in men's basketball at the Chuck Minter Sports Complex.

The Battlin' Bears, 3-1, received 31 points from Tyree Anderson, who was playing in his hometown. Joel Barndt finished with 13 points and 12 rebounds.

"We were definitely never out of the game," Rocky coach Bill Dreikosen said. "I was disappointed how we came out."

The Bears trailed 34-26 at halftime after getting off to a slow start. Rocky committed 16 of its 23 turnovers before intermission.

"We didn't shoot the ball very well (30.4 percent in the first 20 minutes)," Dreikosen said. "Give them credit. They put a lot of pressure on you."

Concordia, 2-0, also had six players score points in double figures, with Tommy Stangl's 15 leading the way.

"It was a good game, great competition," Dreikosen said. "We will learn and definitely gain from that."

Rocky will be back in action on Saturday afternoon against No. 12 Cal State San Marcos.
