Last week, the Lady Mustangs volleyball team posted an impressive postseason run at the NAIA Volleyball National Championship tournament, while men’s and women’s basketball raised their season records with road victories.  

Women’s Volleyball:

At the end of four sets, The Master’s College volleyball team’s season came to a close with a 3-1 loss to 19th-ranked, Wayland Baptist Friday night in the quarterfinal round of the NAIA Volleyball National Championship tournament.  It was TMC’s second showing in program history at the National Tournament.

Leading up to Friday’s match, the 16th-ranked Lady Mustangs posted a 3-0 record in the pool play portion of the tournament, earning a first round bye in single elimination play.

TMC boasted the fourth seed in bracket play while the Pioneers were close behind with the fifth seed.

The loss concluded the Lady Mustang’s 2013 campaign at 23-9 (8-6 GSAC).  

In her final game as a Mustang, Sam Dougherty concluded her brilliant collegiate career by leading all attackers with 21 kills.  Senior libero Rebecca Peluffo closed her time as a Mustang student-athlete with a game-high 29 digs.

Women’s Basketball:

The Master’s College women’s basketball team notched its sixth win of the season Friday night in an 88-72 victory over U.C. Merced (1-7).

Friday night’s victory was the third-highest scoring game the 10th-ranked Lady Mustangs have produced in the 2013-14 campaign, and the second time this season the squad tallied 88 points.

Kelly Burns led the Lady Mustangs by notching a double-double shooting a team-high 20 points and yanking down 10 rebounds. Whitney Best scored 11 points, grabbed seven rebounds, and tallied three assists and three steals.

Also spearheading the way for TMC was Zoe Scott, who tallied 14 points.

Overall, TMC shot 50 percent from the field, 42 percent from behind the arc, and 75 percent at the charity stripe.  The squad also yanked down 38 total rebounds, chipped in 21 dimes, and tallied seven steals.

Now, the Lady Mustangs will head home and set their sights on this Thursday’s match against Bethesda.  Tipoff is set for 7:00 p.m. at Bross Court

Men’s Basketball:

The Master’s College men’s basketball team used a 13-1 run in the first four minutes of the second half to race away from host Simpson 66-57 Friday evening, extending their winning streak to a season-best four games.

With the win, the Mustangs stayed undefeated on the road (4-0) and improved to 7-2.

Derrick Fain hit all seven of his attempts on free throws to finish with a game-high 15 points.  Bernard Ireland was the only other Mustang in double figures, going for 12 points.  Jason Logan shared game-high rebounding honors with Korey Anderson by taking down six boards.

Coming off a six-day break to beat the Redhawks, the Mustangs take a week off before a rematch with Simpson next Friday evening, this time on Bross Court where the ball will go up at 7:00 p.m. The next day, the Mustangs will host Bethesda University of California.  Tipoff is set for 7:00 p.m.
