TACOMA, Wash. - Treyden Harris and Kadeem Nelson each scored 16 points, but it wasn't quite enough as Highline slid past Linn-Benton 76-72 in the opening game of the Tacoma Titan Classic Friday night.

The Roadrunners outscored Highline 42-40 in the second half but struggled from the field, shooting just 37% for the game. 

Nelson scored his points coming off the bench for LBCC. Tyler Newsom led the Roadrunners with 12 rebounds on the night.

It was the season opener for both teams. The Roadrunners are now 0-1, while Highline is 1-0.

LBCC plays host Tacoma tomorrow at 6:00 p.m.
