Men’s Basketball:

Powered by 50 points in the paint, No. 8 Concordia pounded its way past The Master’s College Tuesday evening, edging the Mustangs 68-63 in a riveting GSAC game.

In the loss, TMC’s Dominique Lanier scored a game-high 22 points, highlighted by a 12-13 showing from the free throw line.  Korey Anderson was the only other Mustang in double figures with 12 points. Bernard Ireland tossed in nine points and Chris Patureau had half a dozen more to go with a team-high seven rebounds.

On Saturday, the Mustangs’ 2013-14 season fell to 13-6 and 1-3 in Golden State Athletic Conference play with a 80-66 loss to Biola Saturday night at Bross Court.

Despite the outcome, Lanier led all scorers with 26 points, a career best mark.  As a team, the Mustangs went 24-56 (42%) from the field, 4-19 (21%) behind the arc, and 14-20 (70%) from the line.

The Mustangs now look to right the ship this Tuesday when the squad travels to Santa Barbara to face the Westmont Warriors. Tipoff is set for 7:30 p.m.

Women’s Basketball:

The Master’s College women’s basketball team’s conference dominance continued Tuesday night when the Lady Mustangs topped the Concordia Eagles 86-63 in Irvine.

Whitney Best led all scorers with 18 points, while Jacquelyn Marshall followed closely behind with 16 more. Notably, Zoe Scott put up 13 points while Megan Lindsley finished the night with 10 points to her name.

As a team, TMC finished the night by going 26-58 (44%) from the field, 10-28 (31%) on three pointer attempts, and 27-34 (79%) behind the charity stripe.

On Saturday, the Lady Mustangs notched a 73-60 victory over Biola at Bross Court.

Marshall led all competitors with 20 points and 14 rebounds.  Nicole Nitake followed with 14 points, while Best put up 13 more.  As a team, TMC went 22-60 (33%) from the field, 8-19 (42%) behind the arc, and 21-31 (67%) from the charity stripe.

Now, the Lady Mustangs will hit the road this Tuesday for a 5:30 p.m. game against the 12th-ranked Westmont Warriors- the NAIA’s defending national champions.

With the wins, TMC improved its 2013-14 record to 16-3 and 4-0 in GSAC play.  Next to Vanguard, the NAIA’s first-ranked squad, the Lady Mustangs are the only other team in the GSAC with a spotless conference record.

Baseball:

For the second weekend in a row, The Master’s College baseball team got tremendous pitching from Dalton Thompson and Tucker Richardson as the Mustangs swept Biola in its first GSAC series 2-1, 5-2, and 8-1.

With the victories, the Mustangs remain undefeated at 6-0 and 3-0 in conference play.

Today, the Mustangs will try to extend their winning streak against Simpson in another doubleheader.  The first pitch will be thrown at 11:30 on Reese Field.

Track:

On Saturday, The Master’s College men’s and women’s track teams tore up the road at the Bakersfield Half Marathon which resulted in senior Katrina Graham bagging the individual title with a time of 1 hour 22 minutes 2 seconds.

For the men, Josh Sherfey ended up being the individual champion with a blistering time of 1:09:19- the fastest time by anyone who has raced this half marathon in its 41 year history.

At the end of the day, a combined total of seven men & women Mustang runners qualified to achieve the NAIA’s “A” standard and automatically qualified to compete in the marathon at the NAIA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Gulf Coast, Alabama: Sherfey, Tyler Tockstein, Ryan Freeman, Graham, Hannah Kellerman, Charity Schroeder, and Micayla Frankian.
