The Pioneers lagged in the first half, allowing Southern California College to build a 20-point lead. The Pioneers kept up with the Vanguards during the second half, but were unable to overtake them.
"It's tough having a game right after finals; everybody's just beat," said PUC Coach Mike Hellie. "We got out-hustled. They were a very fast team."
The Pioneers were led by junior guard Brett Graves with 19 points, and junior center Bryan Banfield with 14 rebounds.
The Pioneers have an overall record of 2-3. They will play their next home game at PUC's Pacific Auditorium on Sunday, January 12, at 7:30 p.m.
