ST. LOUIS -- The Columbia Cougar men's basketball team came up on the short end Thursday, falling to the Hornets from Harris-Stowe State University 68-60. The Cougars, ranked No. 18 in the latest NAIA Top 25 Poll, drop to 18-6 overall and 5-1 in league play. The Hornets improve to 14-9 overall and 5-1 vs. AMC foes.

The Cougars were up in the first half and with just minutes left in the frame the Hornets came back to tie up the ball game, turning around an eight point deficit. Harris-Stowe made one of their two attempts from the charity stripe with seven seconds left to take a one-point lead. At the halftime buzzer another foul was called on the Cougars, sending the Hornets to the line again and leading to a 28-25 Harris-Stowe advantage at the break.

The Cougars never took the lead in the second half, falling behind by as many as 11 points. Down the stretch, Columbia put the pressure on the host squad, sending them to the free-throw line numerous times to stop the clock, but the momentum didn't work in Columbia's favor as they dropped the eight-point contest.

Pacing the Cougars in the effort was Jordan Dressler. The junior was the only Cougar in double figures, notching a double-double with 21 points and 10 rebounds.

Columbia starts the second half of AMC action on Saturday, February 4. The Cougars travel to Parkville, Missouri to take on Park University at 4:00 P.M. Columbia prevailed in the first meeting vs. the Pirates earlier this year, defeating Park 76-59 on January 12 in Columbia.
