The Master’s College men’s basketball team kept its hot start to the 2013 season rolling, downing visiting Bethesda University of Anaheim 71-60 on Saturday night at Bross Gym.

While the final score may not reflect it, Saturday night’s contest was a blowout from start to finish.

When looking at virtually every statistic, it’s clear why.

TMC (9-2) outrebounded the Flames, turned the ball over less, and held the struggling squad to just 28 percent shooting in the first half.

Because of that all-around domination on both sides of the ball, the Mustangs entered halftime up 40-23.

“The thing we’re encouraged about with this group is that through 11 games our offense is working exactly the way you want it to as a head coach,” said TMC head coach Chuck Martin. “We had balance, scored inside, outside — we’re not concerned about our offense at all.”

Leading the way for the Mustangs was junior forward Zach Stalin, who scored 15 points on an efficient 5-for-7 shooting. He also grabbed five rebounds.

Six Mustangs players scored nine points or more, including 12-point performances from Derrick Fain and Korey Anderson.

The outing is another strong one for a TMC squad that entered the season with high expectations and is now in the midst of a six-game winning streak.

In the short term, things will get easier for the Mustangs after beating a 1-11 Bethesda squad.

Next up is a Mount Marty squad that has yet to win a game in 2013.

But according to coach Martin, every game is a challenge.

“Every team you play has a certain amount of scholarship players,” Martin said. “We’re still not very good defensively, and we aren’t discouraged by that, we just know that will have to get better if we want to be the team we want to be.”
