Without head coach Remy McCarthy (neck surgery) and second leading scorer Matt Hornbuckle (foot), the Moorpark College men's basketball team (11-6) visits San Luis Obispo tonight for a meeting between two of the WSC North's three 1-0 teams.
After breaking the Raiders four-game losing streak with a last-second win over Hancock Wednesday, coach Mick Cady looks for his first winning streak guiding the Raiders.
"It's been an issue for the last five games. We just have not shot the ball very well."
Moorpark lost a 14-point lead to Hancock by scoring 10 points in 10 minutes in the second half.
"Teams are going to come back when you score like that. We're just hoping it starts to turn a little bit."
Moorpark has been without Hornbuckle since its loss two weeks ago at Sequoias. Cady argued that the loss was bigger than the Raiders missing their head coach.
"Who would you rather lose, a coach or a player? I'm not going to score any points tonight."
Shane Foster will get the bulk of Hornbuckle's minutes tonight.
